The office rent cycle has been very strong in Stockholm in the last few years, following the trend with steady office based employment growth and a strong GDP growth.

However, this strong rent increase means some occupiers with expiring lease contracts now will have to face significant increases in the office costs purely to stay in the same location. Projects that will add office space in the inner city and CBD are few in the nearterm so the question is; what sectors will be able to afford a central location?
