Alone in Q3, take-up dropped 59% as lease extension volume plunged 76%, ESTON said.
About 312,000 sqm of office space stands empty, raising the vacancy rate in the capital to 8.1%.
More than four times as much office space was inaugurated in Q1-Q3 as in the same period a year earlier, and a further 50,000 sqm of office space will come onto the market by year-end.
Total office space in the capital is close to 3,857,000 sqm.
