Global Office Outlook - March 2011

Hot spots are emerging in global office markets.  Rising confidence is boosting activity in top-tier markets, accelerating early cycle rental and capital value growth for prime assets.  While overall growth and demand prospects remain positive, recent events in the Middle East, Africa and Japan illustrate risks that could slow recovery.
In Western Europe and North America office market conditions remain divided.  Prime properties and locations should outperform others by a historically wide margin.  Corporate real estate executives will focus on smart growth to accommodate:
- Hiring increases
- Accessing new workers amid a renewed war for talent
- Making workspaces more productive
Global investors with ample equity and low debt capital cost are still often frustrated by limited options.  Market recoveries should increase available product in 2011. Inflation and interest rates may dampen enthusiasm, but overall we should see increased global investment activity and even higher capital values.
