Bonus episode: Here’s why office leasing is looking up - Andrew Ballantyne, Tim O'Connor, JLL

The clouds of economic uncertainty brought on by COVID-19 are shifting to reveal better prospects for office leasing in Australia as business confidence improves and appetite for offices rebuilds.

Though the overall net take-up of office space remained negative at 116,000 square metres in the three months to December 2020, it had contracted less than the previous three quarters of the year - a sign that business sentiment is improving, particularly with the vaccine due in March.

Listen to Andrew Ballantyne, JLL's head of research – Australia, and Tim O’Connor, head of leasing, as they share their insights on office leasing, including sublease space, changing office footprints, and the future of city centres in this episode of the Perspectives podcast, hosted by Rebecca Kent.
