  • (1888PressRelease) March 30, 2012 - Rents in London's West End are predicted to soar against the background of the lowest availability of new developments recorded within at least the last ten years. In many other areas, availability is also at record low levels, helping to drive pricing ever upwards. With many businesses on leases which will expire in the next three years, experts predict the market will be ever more difficult for firms to navigate as time goes by. The situation is not helped by industry warnings that the Eurozone crisis could further slow the pace of new developments being released onto the market.

    In the meantime, the latest research shows that demand rose over the second half of last year, as availability dropped by 9% over the year as a whole. Expansion in the new technology sector is helping to drive current demand, with firms looking for space, with a movement creating an 'extension' from Shoreditch's 'Silicon Roundabout' stretching from the east through the centre and reaching to the Southbank. However, there is the pressing problem of the city seeing the lowest levels of new developments on the market for at least ten years, with just some 474,000 square feet of new office space completed ready for rentals during 2011. 2010 also saw the tenant demand within the financial services sector outpace levels previously seen before the credit crunch. In that period, rents rose by as much as 25%.
