East Melbourne Office Stock: Most furnished offices in this area date from the 1970s, which means that office stock in East Melbourne consists of predominantly B and C Grade space, although projects are in place for A Grade developments in Victoria Parade. The most well-known office towers are ICI House and the more recent development at One East Melbourne, which consists of 6,000 square metres of A Grade units.

Typical East Melbourne Office Occupiers: The local tenant profile in these serviced offices typically consists of small and medium-sized businesses involved in the creative sector, although the tenant base has been gradually broadening and now the area attracts firms in construction, technology, and manufacturing. In terms of demand, East Melbourne is almost as popular a destination as City Fringe sub-markets like St Kilda and Southbank.

Office Rental Rates: Office costs are in line with the city average of approximately $400 / sqm, but new builds gravitate towards $450 / sqm and over $500 for A Grade office space in landmark buildings. Incentives are below 20 per cent. The priciest office units are located in the western end of the district, with access to Collins Street and the Financial District.

As part of City Inner East sub-market, Serviced East Melbourne offices are characterised by low vacancy rates (below 5 per cent), growing tenant appeal, and high absorption rates, all of which are likely to keep putting upward pressure on rents. Overall, this is one of the tightest non-CBD office markets in Australia, along with Parramatta (Sydney) and Southbank.
