The sector is beaming with positivity amidst moderate pipeline supply.

This chart from Edmund Tie & Company (ET&Co) shows that the office market in Singapore continued to expand in Q3 largely backed by the Central Business District (CBD) where average gross rents rose 0.9% QoQ to $9.05 psf in Q3.

ET&Co thinks that the outlook of the office market is positive as rents are foreseen to go up amidst moderation in pipeline supply.

Meanwhile, rents of Grade B offices in the area of Shenton Way/Robinson Road/Cecil Street/Anson Road/Tanjong Pagar also saw hikes by 0.5% QoQ to $6.25 psf.

“Office demand in the CBD may shift towards decentralised office locations, supported by the trend towards the “live-work-play” lifestyle and the expected increase in CBD rents,” the firm said.
