Fringe market outlook, London, 2014

In our latest release "Fringe Market Outlook" we address the implications of thriving demand on rental values in a once perceived cheaper London office location.

The recent acceleration in London’s occupier market, led by the TMT (Technology, Media and Telecommunications) sector, is now combining with a broader based upturn in requirements from other industries.

With tenants taking a more footloose approach to occupation and the City fringe being the main beneficiary, businesses seeking to balance cost and space requirements are placing inevitable upwards pressure on an already limited stock selection.

With demand showing little sign of slowing we are forecasting further City fringe rental rises in the near term, significantly outpacing that of growth within the West End and City core.
