Office occupancy in Perth is again the highest in the country, according to figures released today by the Property Council of Australia.
Perth’s offices were 88 per cent occupied on peak days in November and 71 per cent on low days, with an average overall figure of 80 per cent.
City of Perth Lord Mayor Basil Zempilas said the numbers, which outstripped all other capital cities, showed workers and employers’ support for the City.
“These numbers represent a huge victory for Perth - a victory for positivity, a victory for teamwork and a victory for celebrating our City and all of the reasons to be in it, not at home,” Mr Zempilas said.
“I’m very proud of the role the City of Perth has played in creating an environment and a mindset which workers want to be a part of.
“Our brand, City of Light, tells everyone who we are and what we stand for. We’re bold, we’re brave, we’re connected. We want to be a part of something special together, we want to stand out.”
The Lord Mayor said the City had worked very hard to improve safety, cleanliness and offer a diverse range of events and attractions.
“Now we are seeing the rewards of that hard work. People want to be a part of the buzz of our City. The office occupancy numbers prove it and so do our visitor numbers.”
“As we head for Christmas, momentum is on our side. Last week more people came into our city after 6pm than any other week this year. I couldn’t be prouder.”
