More than 93,000 sq.m of international Grade A office is ready to arrive into the office market

Hanoi’s office rental market is facing opportunities as well as challenges never seen before due to the impacts of COVID-19. The shortage of supply in the Grade A office segment in terms of both quality and quantity means that the average office rental fee in Hanoi is expected to continue increasing, according to Savills Vietnam.

Grade A office rental fee continues to increase, in contrast to the general trend

In Hanoi, the market records an increase in the price of the office segment in Q1 2020, due to the shortage of supply. JLL’s Q1 report shows that the rental fee for Grade A office slightly increased by 0.6% compared to Q4 2019 and increased by 5.8% compared to Q1 2019.

Noticeably, the report also shows that Q1 2020 records a higher rate of price increase in Grade A office compared to Grade B office (Grade B shows almost no increase), whereas, in previous quarters, Grade B office achieved higher rates. The reason behind this is due to the scarcity of Grade A office and high occupancy rates.

According to Savills Vietnam, Hanoi’s office market in the last two years stayed stable with an average capacity of 93%. Currently, the supply for Grade A office segment remains modest with only around 500,000 sq.m of floor areas out of the total office floor area of 1.8 million sq.m. It is easy to point out that there is a lack of choices for this segment, as most of the Grade A buildings are now old with out of date facilities and infrastructure conditions not improving.

Despite the impacts in the short term due to the global pandemic, Vietnam’s economic prospects remain fairly positive. According to the latest forecast about GDP growth in 2020 by ADB, Vietnam is expected to reach 4.8%, higher than other countries in the region.

According to Savills Vietnam forecast, the rental fee for Grade A office in Hanoi is expected to maintain an increase of 7%/year for the next three years. Therefore, it will be a wise decision for companies to find office space at the earliest time when the building is in the pre-opening phase.
