Sydney's CBD office market saw positive growth during 2015 with the third quarter showing a positive net absorption of 25,600 sqm, the seventh consecutive quarter  of positive net absorption in the CBD office market, according to Herron Todd White.

Herron Todd White's December December Month in Review said the strong tenant activity across the Sydney CBD has seen vacancy further tighten, with the Sydney CBD being the only national CBD office market with a total vacancy below 10%.

"Prime and secondary gross effective rents increased over the year, with a recorded increase of 2.7% at the end of the third quarter," it noted.

"From a supply perspective, a key development underway in Sydney is Barangaroo. The first practical completion, Barangaroo South, was recorded in quarter three. The International Towers Sydney (T2) is being completed in stages, with the low and mid- rise components completed, offering 59,385 square  metres of lettable area.

"Nine other commercial office projects are currently under construction across the Sydney CBD, including 200 George Street and 333 George Street. While a number of these projects comprise tenant pre-commitments, it is expected that the shifting tenant profile down to Barangaroo will result in increased available office space in the vacated buildings."
