Clocking in at number one for the world’s most expensive office space rental fee is Hong Kong, where an office for your business will set you back an eye-popping $248.83 per square foot.
London’s exclusive West End ranked second to Hong Kong, with the price for office space rising 4.7 percent this past year to the atmospheric amount of$220.15 per square foot. In third place was Tokyo with square-foot cost of $186.49 per square foot.
CBRE’s chief economist Dr. Raymond Torto commented that,
“The most expensive office locales are increasingly located in dynamic markets across the emerging economies as office occupiers diversify their global footprints in these markets to take advantage of rising incomes and the availability of labour.”
