Office space demand still robust for 2019 - Knight Frank

The Philippine office sector is forecast to maintain continued growth this year with new office space expected to hit 1.2 million square meters.

According to a BusinessWorld report, Santos Knight Frank says that 34% of the expected new supply will come from Quezon City, 20% from Makati City, 18% from Taguig City, 13% from Ortigas, 10% from the Bay Area, and 5% from Alabang.
