Q3 2019 Johannesburg Office Market Report

Q3 brought a slight uptick in Johannesburg office activity with YoY grade-A rentals growing a nominal 2% following a decline during the first half of the year, with pressures of oversupply remaining high. A slight improvement in the city’s office vacancy rate, compared to the previous quarter, brings it to 12.2%.
