The New Geography of Office Demand

The New Geography of Office Demand

​​​​​Improvements in technology and infrastructure, coupled with shifting social and economic patterns and the drive for devolution, mean the UK's office market is undergoing rapid and profound structural change.

To this end, what type of locations will be the most desirable to attract the best talent? What are the implications for less favoured sites? And where will investors look next?

The New Geography of Office Demand research was initiated to explore the impact of structural change on the office landscape through three standalone, but intrinsically linked papers – ‘The Urban Tendency’, ’Business Parks – rising to the challenge’ and ‘Where next in the UK’.

The answers are thought provoking, but necessarily tentative and are essential reading for investors, developers, occupiers and government alike.


Where next in the UK?

In the third and final instalment of the New Geography of Office Demand series, we take a more granular approach in examining the outlook for specific cities to answer the question: which locations beyond London and the Big 6 offer the greatest opportunity for investors over the next five years?
