The sharp fluctuations in the course currency adversely affected the cost of renting offices. Tenant companies whose rental rates were fixed in dollars in the lease agreement have significantly increased rental rates since the beginning of the year. It is quite obvious that in the current economic situation, the question of reducing the cost of renting offices is quite acute, so tenants are ready to enter into negotiations with the owners on the subject of transferring rental payments from dollars to Russian currency.
Taking into account the growing level of vacant space and a record volume of commissioning of new construction in 2014 (for the nine months of 2014 a total of 966 thousand square meters were commissioned and by the end of the year another 600 thousand square meters were announced, which is a record for last 5 years), we see that today tenants have a choice - to stay in the current office and pay a high rent, or move to a higher-quality facility on favorable terms for the current market. Accordingly, the situation when demand is falling, supply is increasing and the rental price is growing, it is absolutely non-market, therefore the tenants' desire to reduce rental costs is quite logical.
It is worth noting that the owners today are flexible and ready to make concessions to tenants, fixing rates in rubles, not being tied to the dollar rate, as well as fixing the boundaries of the currency corridor.
