Demand for office space weakened in Sep quarter

According to a Mint report, demand for commercial office space weakened in most markets in the July-September quarter. According to the real estate consultancy CBRE South Asia Pvt. Ltd. the absorption declined by 14% at around 6 million sq. ft compared to about 7 million sq. ft in the previous quarter. The July-September period witnessed the lowest addition of office space in several quarters, largely attributable to the prevailing high vacancy pressures in completed projects and poor commitment levels in under-construction properties, the report states.
