The aggregate market leasing activity across the top seven cities remained strong, showing a growth of 2.25X y-o-y, with around 215 deals. While occupier activity is rising with increasing occupancy levels in offices, it is interesting to note that around one-fourth of market activity was on account of some significant renewal activity during the month. This is a clear marker toward offices remaining central to all evolving workplace strategies, even as the workplace itself is being reimagined. We do expect that given developing global headwinds, occupier activity in the short-term may be oriented more towards relocation/ consolidation/ renewal with limited expansion-driven growth,” said Dr. Samantak Das, Chief Economist, and Head of Research and REIS, India, JLL.

Note: Aggregate market leasing activity refers to lease transactions for all grades in the top 7 cities (Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune, and Kolkata) recorded during the period, including confirmed pre-commitments and term renewals. Deals in the discussion stage are not included.
