OSAKA CITY | Supply of New Office Space 2017 & Office Stock Pyramid 2017

Xymax Real Estate Institute released a report on Supply of New Office Space 2017 and Office Stock Pyramid 2017 covering the Osaka city office area. The volume of new supply in the coming years indicates a direct impact on the market balance in the future. The Office Stock Pyramid is an aggregation of all the rentable areas of office buildings in the market and it shows the breakdown of the office building stock (rentable area and number of buildings) by size of the building (small/medium/large) and by age, and the balance and proportion of office buildings in the market.

From this report, these two studies were combined into one report.
