There are multiple developments in the pipeline, but none of significance that will be completed before the end of 2016.
The biggest development in the future is a 25+ storey office tower to go above the current Westfield site, due for completion in 2020.
Some of the biggest tenants that currently reside in Auckland are KPMG, Microsoft, Google, Apple, Accenture, Spark, Vodafone, Fonterra and ASB.
Pricing is generally differentiated by the Grade of building first, then the location of the building second.
For Prime/A Grade, serviced office prices are currently at about $900 per person, per month. For B Grade, approx. $600 per person, per month. C Grade, approx. $375 per person, per month.
However, when looking at serviced offices keep in mind that these costs usually cover a variety of amenities and as such can offer great value for money and lower outgoings.
Average size of office varies depending on the type of business and industry they are in.
Currently, the market is so saturated with demand that the availability of space is very low, so people are turning to serviced offices as a cost-effective and flexible solution for their immediate to long-term needs.
Coworking experienced a boom in popularity in 2014 that has slowed over the beginning of 2015, but is sure to continue to increase in trend.
Instant Offices are able to accommodate most enquiries, from one person through to 100 or more depending on the specifics.
