How did the Hong Kong office market evolve off-the-back of Hong Kong’s closer economic ties with mainland China, its high occupancy costs, and its change in occupiers’ workplace strategies?

A recent research report from CBRE, 'The Evolution of the Hong Kong Grade A Office Market: A Telescopic Analysis — 2019', uncovers the major trends shaping Hong Kong’s Grade A office market. Following the launch of their first report in 2016, the team has again undertaken a comprehensive analysis of 245 Grade A office buildings across Hong Kong this year, to understand how the market has evolved. 

Join us for an insightful session as CBRE’s Head of Research for the Greater Bay Area and Hong Kong Marcos Chan highlights key trends from the report and explains what they mean to real estate professionals.

Key insights from the report

  • Office demand continued to be fuelled by Chinese firms, but pace of expansion has slowed since mid-2018.
  • Limited spill-over demand from the GBA at an infancy stage.
  • Co-working moves into the mainstream.
  • Technology sector growth not necessarily a spinner for Grade A office demand.
  • Connectivity improvement helps drive decentralisation demand.
