Emgering commercial market strong
PARRAMATTA continues to be one of Australia’s strongest emerging commercial office markets, according to the Property Council of Australia’s Office Market Report released recently.

The office vacancy rate in Parramatta stands at 2.7percent, down 0.3 percent from the last report published in January.
Parramatta’s performance is ahead of the Sydney CBD at 3.7percent, followed by Macquarie Park, Chatswood, Crows Nest/St Leonards and North Sydney.
By the end of 2020, it is anticipated more than 136,000sqm of newly constructed office space will come online, with a substantial component of this space already underlease.
“Parramatta continues its upward trajectory and the market is forging ahead with construction of new office accommodation,” the Property Council of Australia’s Western Sydney Regional Director Ross Grove said.
“It is particularly pleasing to see the construction of office space with large floorplates-this is the most attractive type of office accommodation for some of our largest corporate
players and is evidence of Parramatta’s growing appeal.
“Parramatta’s ongoing performance can be attributed to a shared vision for the city’s future. The broad and bipartisan consensus in Parramatta provides businesses with the confidence to make large-scale investment decisions.
“Staying the course on infrastructure and providing certainty around planning decisions is essential to cementing Parramatta’s status as one of the most attractive destinations for
jobs and investment.”
