The RO Developments and Office Agents Society (OAS) Roundtable Debate: Is the Market Ready for Office Development and Refurbishment in the South/South East? Part 1

wantspacegotspace.co.uk - RO Developments / OAS Roundtable DebateThe South East is an anomaly in the UK. With the powerhouse of London at its heart, the region has for centuries been fed by the economic lifeblood pulsating from the capital. But to say that London’s peripheries are kept healthy by the hub they are clustered around is too simple an analysis, and there are many new opportunities to take, and challenges to deal with both inside and outside the capital.

At a Mayfair lunch last month, hosted by Richard Bourne of RO Developments and supported by The OAS, a group of some of the most influential thinkers in the South East office market came together to discuss these opportunities. The debate was chaired by Roland Jordan, regional co-ordinator and former chairman of the Office Agents Society.

Developers have traditionally benefited from a double whammy, by building in the towns that are relatively cheap but still close enough to London, and they have always attracted occupiers with the same advantages. The South East remains the area that dominates employment and output in the UK but the micro location has to be right.
