The first quarter of this year brought a revival of the Prague office market. Growing demand may encounter a lower availability of new premium spaces in the coming years, as only a smaller number of new projects are currently under construction. This can also affect the currently stabilized price level of rents. Serviced office centers and projects that comply with ESG principles are on the rise. This results from a quarterly market survey carried out by the Colliers company.
The company Colliers, which belongs to the top in the provision of diversified professional services in the field of commercial real estate and investment management, has prepared a unique price map of office space in Prague. The map indicates that for the highest rents, offices are rented at centrally located metro stations such as the Museum or Náměstí Republiky, while the lowest rents are around Petřiny or Náměstí Míru stations.
Anyone who regularly moves around Prague's náměstí Republiky may have recently noticed an increase in construction activity at the somewhat run-down corner house adjacent to Kotvá. And in about a month, scaffolding will appear on the corner palace in the neoclassical style according to the design of the architects Adolf Foehr and Alfons Wertmüller, the author of the State Opera.

Rising energy prices and upcoming changes in the mandatory reporting of ESG information, which show the effects of companies' management style on the environment, energy balance and the quality of the working environment, aroused a significantly higher interest of companies in sustainability and dream related areas last year. Specifically, it was confirmed by 67% of more than 500 interviewed investors and tenants of commercial real estate participating in a global survey by the real estate consulting company CBRE. The current facts are inexorable: only 15% of buildings worldwide currently meet the conditions of the so-called Paris Agreement, while 85% of all existing real estate located on the territory of the European Union is to be used even in 2050, when the EU wants to achieve climate neutrality. In the future, it will therefore be necessary to implement a whole series of reconstructions and demanding rebuilds. It is for these reasons that CBRE's latest survey was created, the results of which reveal the main trends that are currently gaining ground in the field of ESG and have a significant impact on the strategic decision-making of companies.
