Companies search for offices in Ha Noi

Vietnam:The demand for rented office space in Ha Noi increased sharply in the second quarter of this year, pointing to a gradual recovery of the domestic economy, said property experts.

According to the Savills Viet Nam's report on the Ha Noi property market for the second quarter of this year, the total occupancy was approximately 77,000 square metres, increasing 14.2 per cent quarter-on-quarter (QoQ).

The demand in the secondary areas increased significantly by 175 per cent QoQ due to the entry of two new projects: Gelex Tower and Coalimex Building, it said. There was also significant improvement in Thanh Xuan and Dong Da districts, which were up 25 per cent to 35 per cent QoQ this quarter.

"Approximately half of the enquiries received at Savills were for office spaces in the central business districts, which were double the enquiries for the western and secondary areas," said Savills Viet Nam.

"For large office spaces of over 500 square metres, 42 per cent of the enquiries were for the western area," they said.

"Affordable rents and attractive incentives from land-lords motivated commercial tenants to move from villa-type offices to professionally managed office buildings," said the CBRE Viet Nam.

According to CBRE Viet Nam, average rents continued to decrease across the market, achieving US$21.8 per square metre per month.

Grade A average asking rents decreased by 3.2 per cent q-o-q, while Grade B rents recorded a slight decrease of 0.4 per cent q-o-q.

On a year-on-year (y-o-y) basis, Grade B reported better performance with a slight 1.6 per cent increase. Grade A, on the other hand, recorded a dr-op of 6.2 per cent over the same period. Average asking rents stood at $30.4 per square metres per month for Grade A buildings, and $18.4 per square metres per month for Grade B buildings.

Savills Viet Nam said, in the second half of 2014, 85,000 square metres from five projects in the secondary area are expected to be online. The largest project will be Lotte Center Ha Noi, with approximately 45,000 square metres of space.

Up to 2016, 27 projects with more than 500,000 square metres at 36 per cent of the total current stock will enter the market. All are under construction or being furnished. However, five projects supplying over 60,000 square metres have been delayed for several quarters.

Meanwhile, CBRE Viet Nam said that moving forward, projects in the west will be under further pressure to slash rents as there will be enough properties in the market. The average rents are expected to go down while the vacancy rate will rise.

"Grade A buildings in the city centre will achieve higher occupancy rates as tenants have limited options in this segment. However, to compete with new entrants the older properties will need to renovate and upgrade," said CBRE Viet Nam.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
