As Sydney’s CBD performance continues to slide due to businesses packing up or reducing the amount of space they need, other parts of NSW have gathered momentum.

Both Sydney and Melbourne’s CBD recorded with increases in vacancy to 11.3 per cent and 13.8 per cent respectively, over the past year.
Meanwhile, markets such as Parramatta and Newcastle have outperformed the major cities – with high rates of demand to occupy space.
Ray White’s commercial head of research Vanessa Rader said Parramatta’s office market had continued to grow with high quality A-grade assets being added to the market and stock nearing a million square metres.
