Optimising your asset for a new era
Despite facing lower risks of obsolescence compared to the US and Europe, the office sector in Asia Pacific is not without challenges. Pressure is starting to build on several fronts including elevated vacancy levels, evolving occupier space requirements and impending government legislation.
