New office development projects in Bangkok slated to open later this year are experiencing strong pre-commitment levels, continuing a trend that began in 2013.

According to JLL’s Thailand Property Intelligence Centre, the Bangkok office market has enjoyed a single-digit average vacancy rate for the second consecutive year in 2015 and is currently standing at 9%.

Prime office buildings enjoy lower vacancies, averaging 7%

Healthy demand for space in new projects is being driven by large domestic and multi-national firms seeking to expand their office footprint, but being faced with limited options in existing buildings as vacancy rates in existing prime office buildings are near all-time lows, according to JLL, a professional services firm specializing in real estate.

One prime example is G Tower on Rama IX Road, the latest addition to The Grand Rama 9 New CBD project, an iconic mixed-use development by Grand Canal Land PCL.

Planned for completion in the third quarter this year, more than 65% of the office space in G Tower has already been pre-leased.

Krungthai-AXA Life Insurance PCL is G Tower’s first major anchor tenant and will occupy nearly 15,000 sqm when the project completes later this year.

Secured by JLL, Krungthai-AXA Life Insurance’s relocation represents the largest office leasing transaction recorded in Bangkok in 2015. With several other major occupiers presently finalizing negotiations, G Tower should be nearly 100% pre-leased on opening.
