UK-based IWG Plc, a flexible office solutions provider, is expanding its network in Ukraine and opening a new Regus workspace in Kyiv.
According to a press release from the company, the new workspace of nearly 1,700 square meters will be located in the business center Avenue 53 in Peremohy Avenue, and will be designed for 295 jobs.
“We have been looking for a location in Peremohy Avenue for a long time, because there was a request from our residents who travel to the center of the capital every day from Akademmistechko or Irpin and spend more than an hour in traffic jams, because time is the most valuable thing for each of us. Therefore, expanding our network in Kyiv, we opted for Avenue 53,” Director of IWG in Ukraine Yulia Lytvynenko said.
Despite the slump during the quarantine period, she said the IWG expects demand for flexible office solutions without fixed jobs to grow.
“Now, due to the high level of uncertainty, a classic office with a long-term lease is associated with great risks. While flexible offices allow companies to increase or decrease the number of employees without financial losses and pay only for the area they use,” she said.
IWG (formerly Regus Group) is the global operator of leading office rental companies. The first Regus office center in Ukraine is Horizon Tower in Shelkovichna Street was opened in 1998. In total in Ukraine as of July 2020 IWG is represented by two brands Regus and Spaces in ten business centers in Kyiv: Maidan Plaza Spaces, Horizon Tower, Kyiv Podil, Gulliver, Horizon Park Business Center, Podil Heritage, IQ center, Silver Breeze, Forum West Side, and Avenue 53.
New supply on the office real estate market in Kyiv in 2019 was around 100,000 square meters and record-hitting 255,000 square meters of areas are announced to go live in 2020
“Over the past four years, the Business Expectations Index in construction has grown significantly (137.9 points) and has broken an eight-year record. Thus, the new supply almost doubled compared to 2018 and amounted to about 100,000 square meters, and the total supply of office space in Kyiv amounted to 1.8 million square meters,” CBRE Ukraine (Kyiv), the consulting company, said in a press release.
According to developers’ announcements, in 2020 a record number of areas should enter the market – about 255,000 square meters. Moreover, in 2021 an additional 250,000 square meters is expected to go live and in 2022 some 250,000-300,000 square meters.
“The shortage of quality space in Kyiv resumed the activities of developers, as evidenced by an increase in the volume of new supply by 70% year-over-year in 2019. Despite such a sharp increase in the volume of new space, it is expected that the bulk of it will be absorbed by IT and the flexible office segment, due to pent-up demand for large quality areas,” CBRE Ukraine said.
Thus, the average vacancy rate is likely to remain at the same level or show a slight increase in the best areas on the market.
“If in the next two to three years, demand will correspond to the supply, then significant fluctuations in rental rates are not expected,” CBRE Ukraine said.
