THE REQUEST

In Bucharest, the volume of spaces traded in 2020 stood at approximately 186,000sqm. Due to the pandemic, the companies were more reserved in contracting new spaces, while the area for which the existing contracts were renewed or renegotiated remained at the level of previous years.

Most requests came from the IT & C, BPO, and SSC industry, adding up 30% of the total rented surface in 2020.

The sector of Professional Services also had an important share, with 16% of the rented area, the Financial one with 14% and the Medical & Pharma field with 10% of the rented area.

Main transactions in 2020

THE RENT

The rents requested for the upper-class office building in Bucharest remained in 2020 at the level of those in the previous year, manifesting, however, greater availability of negotiation from the owners.
