“Singapore’s COVID restrictions eased in April 2022, allowing the workforce to return to the office. However, with traditional leases expiring, many corporates saw the opportunity and need to adapt their real estate strategies, often downsizing in favour of more dynamic and flexible workspace arrangements," said Ana Olivares, Director at The Instant Group, Asia Pacific.

"The bulk of new flex supply was released to the market in Q1 2022 and with increased demand, operators seized the opportunity to increase rates, particularly for newly launched locations such as WeWork @ 21 Collyer Quay and The Work Project @ CapitaSpring,” added Olivares.
