Central London Market Report Q2 2013


​High letting figures  recorded in Q2 are testament to a UK economic recovery led by London. The Central London Market recorded the highest quarter of take-up since Q4 2010, with 2.6 million sq ft let in Q2.

Despite the strong take up, overall demand grew by 12% in Q2, with the TMT sector continuing to lead the way with 33% of overall demand.  Overall supply was up slightly on Q1, but rising office demand is expected to create increasing shortages of high quality accommodation.
 
Investment volumes remain relatively subdued despite strong demand; £2.6 billion was transacted in Q2, the same level of activity as in Q1 but down 41% on Q2 2012. Assets in the market are subject to competitive bidding and we may see further yield compression for ‘best in class’ assets. Foreign share of investment rose to 76% in H1 2013.
