When assessing the latest SAPOA Office Vacancy Survey figures for the 3rd Quarter of 2012 in Cape Town, certain changes to the survey must be taken into consideration, according to Dave Russell, a director of Baker Street Properties.

Vacancies let tenants upgrade

Despite average GDP growth of 2,7% in the 10 years since 1993, close to 2m m² of new A- and B-grade office space was built in Johannesburg's northern suburbs.
