Union Street, Aberdeen – Occupier Update (15th Feb 2021)

March 8, 2021
Even during a global pandemic with our lives turned upside down time still seems to pass quickly. That was my thought as I carried out our 6 monthly occupier review of Union Street. Once again starting the journey from home rather than the office but hopefully there is light at the end of the tunnel on that front. Businesses are more than capable of getting staff back into their offices and operating responsibly and safely. I hope many find our survey of some interest, over time the data will be useful in broadly measuring the health of our most famous … Read More

Aberdeen Office Market Update

February 16, 2021
It is common knowledge that the office market in Aberdeen is intrinsically linked to the fortunes of the energy sector and the price of a barrel of oil.   We now have the added impact of COVID-19 and Government enforced restrictions on almost all aspects of our daily lives.  So how has Aberdeen’s office market fared in the face of a perfect storm of energy sector austerity and a global pandemic, reducing need for the very commodity that makes Aberdeen tick?  Since 2015, when the oil price fell from the US$100 to mid-$20’s, office demand and supply was turned on its … Read More
