The office market in Cluj has not been as affected by the COVID pandemic compared to Bucharest where companies tried to sublease spaces they considered unnecessary or to surrender office spaces earlier then their lease term was due, as the pipeline of new projects is very limited and the vacancy still considerably low”, said Alexandru Orzea, Consultant Tenant Representation at JLL Romania.
