London office take-up jumps

In the three months to the end of September, take-up of office space across the capital’s main West End, City and Docklands markets has increased by 64 per cent on the second quarter to 1.86m sq ft, according to latest figures by Cushman & Wakefield. This figure is more than double the take-up seen in the first quarter of the year, when only 716,000 sq ft of space was acquired by companies, the lowest level on record.
