The consultant released its annual Global Prime Office Occupancy Costs survey. The cost reflect rent, plus local taxes and service charges for the highest-quality prime office properties.
CBRE's Chairman - India & South-East Asia - Anshuman Magazine said, "Delhi, being a prime market, continues to witness significant activity and has moved one step ahead to the 9th position owing to stable vacancy, rents and absorption."
He expressed optimism about the Mumbai market and expected an upswing in the coming months.
According to the report, Hong Kong (Central) is at the first position with an annual rent of USD 306.57 per sq ft, followed by London (West End), Beijing (Finance Street) in China, Hong Kong (Kowloon) and Beijing (CBD) in China.
New York (Midtown- Manhattan) ranked sixth with an annual rent of USD 183.78 per sq ft, while New York (Midtown-South Manhattan) is at 7th position commanding rent of USD 171.56 per sq ft.
In the top 10 list, Tokyo (Marunouchi/Otemachi), Japan is at the eighth position and London (City), UK, is at the 10th rank.
Global prime office occupancy costs rose 2.4 per cent year-over-year. The cost in America was up 3.2 per cent, Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) 2 per cent and Asia Pacific 1.7 per cent.
The survey highlighted that prime office occupancy cost growth was consistent across all regions in the past 12 months.
On the Indian commercial real estate market, Magazine said, "Strong demand from finance, technology and the e-commerce sectors has fuelled the growth momentum in prime occupancy costs from last year and commercial office market remains a strong growth propeller for the real estate sector."
