Developer projects in Prague in 2015

Three million square metres of office space

Prague currently offers over 3 million sq m of office space. 15 administrative buildings were finished last year, offering an area of around 150 thousand sq m.

“This figure is comparable to the capacity of space that was completed in the pre-crises years,” said Katarina Wojtusiak, Head of office agency at CBRE.

“The annual amount of office space that was finished fell to 80 thousand square metres during the crises,” added Katarina Wojtusiak.

The most favourable conditions for leasing offices

Does this mean it is the right time to change offices or negotiate better conditions? Absolutely! If you are looking for administrative space, now is the best time.

“The rental market for office space is very competitive. Landlords are offering many enticements in order to fill occupancy,” Katarina Wojtusiak went on to add.

The volume of office space has exceeded demand and landlords are attracting tenants with attractive packages including so-called “rent holidays” or by contributing to office refits.

In order to obtain more favourable conditions, you do not have to move into a new office space - it is possible to try to negotiate new terms and conditions of existing rental contracts.

Interesting localities for office headquarters

We have noticed the biggest demand in Karlín, Pankrác or in the centre of Prague. Karlín attracts companies, small traders as well as individual residents. The more expensive Prague city centre has remained an attractive locality.

“There are some companies that like the centre, including law firms, financial advisors or investors,” said Katarina Wojtusiak.

Office vacancy

At the end of last year, the office vacancy rate fluctuated at around 15.3%, while it could reach 17-18% by the end of this year.

The lowest rate of vacancy can be found at Anděl, Chodov and Opatov. The highest vacancy rates are in Vysočany - Prosek - Letňany.

Be sure to secure office space in time

We recommend that companies interested in office space start looking on time by preparing contracts and ensuring everything necessary for a move. Moving large companies can take several years. We will help you with the entire process, providing you the smoothest transition throughout this enormous change.
