According to a report from real estate consultants Cushman&Wakefield, at the end of the first quarter of 2015 the total for office-space rentals for the Barcelona metropolitan area was up 17.74% from the same period the previous year.

Of the total absorption of space through these new leases, 57% took place in new business areas, like the 22@ innovation district and Sant Cugat del Vallès, on the outskirts of Barcelona.

At the same time, rent on offices in prime locations in Barcelona has increased for the first time since the fourth quarter of 2102. Specifically, they have gone from €17.75/m²/month to €18.00/m²/month.

The office-space rentals market in Barcelona, thus, has maintained the upward trend that began in 2014.
