Since the end of the last century, Cardiff has seen significant development through Cardiff Bay as well as well as the city centre.
The city continues to change and develop with the launch of the new Central Square Development - one million sq. ft. of office, residential and retail space which will be prime stock and could potentially drive costs of surrounding offices up.
It is also set to create even more of a location preference, meaning offices further out of the city could become less desirable.
Instant Offices’ local sales expert, Jessica Colson suggests Cardiff Central for companies looking to set up in the city.
The value for money is good and you are close to transport links wherever you are.
Some offices also have parking, which is unusual for town centres.
Because of its central location, it is also an ideal area for firms dealing with clients.
The average price for office space in Cardiff is £170-£250 per person per month.
This price includes a range of amenities, from on-site cafés and showers to administrative support and virtual office options.
Many offices in Cardiff also offer on-site parking – a rarity in most capital cities.
Cardiff offers a range of large and small flexible office solutions.
There is a large demand for smaller serviced office space in the city with the majority of requests being for three- or four-man office spaces, often driven by companies looking for a regional base.
According to Jessica there is good availability for this requirement as well as larger workspaces.
Instant Offices is able to help find companies a suitable office space no matter their size, and are able to accommodate most enquiries, from a single desk to 100 or more.
