SNAPSHOT

Central is the traditional business district for the professional services and finance industry in the city. Given its proximity to the Airport Express and business connections, this district commands the highest rents.

Hong Kong’s Grade A office market totals approximately 94 million sq ft. Central accounts for around a quarter of this supply.

GLOBAL BENCHMARK

The Hong Kong Central submarket continues to be the world’s most expensive market, around 60% costlier than the next two markets (New York - Midtown and London - West End). Strong demand from Mainland Chinese firms, alongside ongoing supply shortages, is maintaining premium values.

Indeed, with the overall impact of COVID-19, office rentals are continuing on a downtrend, and for occupiers who are within a suitable transaction window, can yield real dividends.
