According to Office Leasing, the Catalan capital will have a total of 322,000 square metres of new office space by 2022, 33% of which has already been pre-let.
CBRE forecasts that office take-up in Barcelona will exceed 300,000 square metres by 2022. “A city capable of attracting companies is a city capable of attracting investment,” said the head of CBRE Barcelona, Xavier Güell, who said that in 2021 the Catalan capital broke a historical record by becoming the European city with the greatest exposure to the technology sector.
