Cape Town Office Market Overview Q2 2015
The Cape Town office market showed improvement in Q2 2015, partly driven by the conversion of Triangle House, in the CBD, to residential and hotel accommodation.
The vacancy rate reduced to 8.1% in Q2 2015 from 9.2% in Q1 2015. This is the lowest vacancy rate in the various South African metros surveyed by SAPOA.
Rental rates improved by an overall average of 5.7% y/y with Grade A buildings driving much of the growth.
Johannesburg Retail Property Market Overview Q2 2015
The muted growth in consumption and household credit is likely to see demand for retail accommodation remain largely unchanged from current levels.
Occupiers in super-regional malls can expect to see annual rental escalations averaging around 7.0%.
Despite weak consumer confidence, the anticipation of new malls and the growing interest of international brands and retailers is indicative of the positive long-term outlook of the local retail sector.
Johannesburg Office Market Overview Q2 2015
The Johannesburg office vacancy rate saw an improvement to 11.3% in Q2 2015 from 11.9% in Q1 2015. The decline was driven mainly by take-up in Grade A accommodation.
Johannesburg continues to anticipate an additional 591,000m² of new developments, raising concerns of an over-supplied market. The average rental rate increased by a muted 2.9% y/y in Q2 2015.
The subdued office market provides an opportune moment for restructuring and re-strategising business models for both occupiers and investors.
Johannesburg Industrial Property Market Overview Q2 2015
The industrial vacancy rate has moved only slightly from Q1 2015, implying stable levels of industrial property demand attributable to trade activity.
The eastern and northern nodes are dominating the market at the moment, holding much of the newer and larger logistics units – an advantage for rental growth.
Construction and utilities, which have both seen moderate improvements in employment of late, could ease the pressure on trade performance as a driver of activity in the sector.
