The gap between the asking rent in the CBD area and non-CBD area will widen in the next two years, when many retail podiums are expected to be handed-over and large-scale shopping centres will be located outside of the city center, where the population density is high and personal income is improving. Also, with the limited office supply in the CBD area and the difficulty in leasing retail podiums in non-CBD area, the combination of co-working space and retail podiums will become more popular.
