Central Birmingham office market take up figures for Quarter 3, 2022

The latest report was compiled for Birmingham Office Market Forum by Jonathan Carmalt, Director, Office Agency, JLL.

Office take up in quarter three, 2022 in the central Birmingham office market totalled 189,492 sq ft in 28 deals, according to figures compiled by Birmingham Office Market Forum.

When added to the 60 deals totalling 292,860 sq ft recorded in the first half, the year to date totals 482,352 sq ft in 88 deals.

The total take-up at this stage of the year remains consistent with both 2020 and 2021.

However the number of deals are now back to the levels seen pre-pandemic in 2018 and 2019. The standout transaction was the inward investment letting to Goldman Sachs, a major boost to Birmingham with undoubted spin offs to come.

2021; 496,237 sq ft, 63 deals
2020; 480,412 sq ft, 37 deals
2019; 675,172 sq ft, 90 deals
