The Melbourne corporate market continues to expand at a consistent rate, posing significant opportunities for businesses with no sign of slowing down. In particular, Melbourne’s CBD has shown record net absorption rates for office space, positioning itself at the top of global office market rent expectations for the remainder of 20171. As such, we have seen an increment of hotel developments and flight accessibility to the region in recent years as business travellers flock to the vibrant Victorian city.
