Emigrate to AustraliaEmigrate to Australia where the number of offices in Melbourne will increase by 9.8 per cent over the next five years, while the number of new offices in Sydney will rise by just 4.9 per cent.

“More offices mean more jobs,” says Darrell Todd, founder of thinkingaustralia.

“This is good news for anyone seeking to live and work in Australia.”

The growth of office construction in Melbourne will see the two cities draw level with around the same amount of offices by 2020, according to latest research from Dexus.

Melbourne’s office sector is currently around 10 per cent smaller than Sydney’s but the gap is growing smaller every year.

“Melbourne is forecast to be the biggest city in Australia in coming years and many more offices are required in order to meet the growing population and the fast expanding workforce,” says Darrell Todd.

Melbourne has been growing fast for the past 15 years, driven by population growth and the availability of building land in the city’s Docklands area.

Office vacancies in Sydney’s city centre will rise slowly from 2.8 per cent in the second half of 2018 to 5.1 per cent in the first half of 2021, when the market is forecast to experience over-supply.
