Snippets: CEBU CITY, Philippines — Interests for office spaces in Metro Cebu have notably increased in the third quarter of 2020, despite the challenges faced by the real property sector amid the pandemic.
This development was noted by top professional services firm Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) in its market overview for the period.
According to JLL Philippines, Metro Cebu’s shares of the total office space inquiries in the third quarter climbed to 28.6 percent from previously at only 4 percent. These inquiries come from occupiers from Metro Manila and some local-based businesses.
