The campaign aims to not only create personalised, trend leading coworking spaces, but also fulfil the firm's pursuit of sustainability. </p><p>JLL Shanghai's new office enjoys a prime location. Situated on Shimen Road in Jing'an District, the HKRI Taikoo Hui complex features immediate access to metro Line 13 and is adjacent to Lines 2 and 12. HKRI Taikoo Hui is also set to become a vibrant commercial landmark and retail destination. </p><p>The design of the new office embraces a flexible,<strong> coworking </strong>style that encourages collaboration, openness, win-win, knowledge-sharing and innovation.</p><p>As an industry pioneer in real estate services, JLL takes pride in how the new Shanghai office's design fosters employee <strong>well-being</strong>. The office's design, energy efficiency, facilities and materials all strictly follow the standards of two certifications - the <strong>LEED v4 Platinum and the WELL Platinum</strong>. JLL Shanghai aspires to become one of the first offices in Asia Pacific to obtain both platinum certifications.</p><p>​​​Healthy living and sustainability is reflected in every aspect of the new office. Interestingly, the office's areas are named after geographical features. For example, levels 22 and 23 are named as "Southern Hemisphere" and "Northern Hemisphere" respectively. The areas of each department are named after the seven continents. The reception area is named as "Equator Club," while the coffee area is called the "Aurora Café." Additionally, all meeting rooms and interactive spaces are creatively named after natural landscape such as rainforest, cataract, and canyon.</p><p><strong>Smart technology</strong> has been applied in the new office. A variety of the latest high-tech products are installed in the office to improve staff productivity and user experience through the interaction between virtual and real-world environments. For instance, Microsoft HoloLens uses hologram technology to project digital content into 3D imagery, thereby allowing cutting edge virtual interaction. In addition, traditional telephones will no longer be in use. All employees are given access to internet-based tele-communications via laptop computers or smartphones, thereby realizing a wireless office.</p><p><strong>Eddie Ng, Managing Director of JLL East China</strong>, said with delight: "With more than twenty years in the industry, JLL Shanghai office - the company's first branch in mainland China - enjoys the largest business scale among its China entities.  I am convinced that the relocation and upgrade of our Shanghai office will be another key milestone for the firm, and will allow JLL's over two-century-old brand to continue to prosper in Shanghai and China. The move also inspires us to achieve the next level of service excellence and new ambitions!"</p><p>​Set up in 1994, the Shanghai office helped establish JLL's presence in mainland China. From a small handful of employees in its early years, JLL Shanghai quickly expanded and consequently opened the Pudong office in 2007. Today, the Shanghai office has a team of more than 400 experienced professionals and 2,900 on-site staff.

Which Asian city has the world’s priciest office space/china/en-gb/news/567/china-hongkong-shanghai-beijing-top10-office-priceWhich Asian city has the world’s priciest office space<p><strong>​​​​Shanghai, 7 Dec 2016</strong> - Hong Kong is the city with the world’s highest rent for a premium <a href="http://www.joneslanglasalle.com.cn/china/en-gb/services/property-types/office" target="_blank">office</a>, with London and New York in second and third place respectively, according to JLL’s latest Global <a href="http://www.jll.com/premiumrents" target="_blank">Premium Office Rent Tracker​</a>.<br></p><p>Hong Kong takes a significant lead in terms of occupancy costs compared to the two other global cities. The price of premium office space — defined as those in Class A buildings with excellent facilities — in Hong Kong’s Central district is more than 50 percent higher than rates in London and New York. It costs US$302 per square foot per year to rent space in a top–notch building in Hong Kong alongside US$197 per square foot in London’s West End and US$194 per square foot in Midtown New York.</p><p>This is also a new high for Hong Kong compared to US$262 a year ago. Prices were pushed up due to strong demand and shortage of stock as companies from Mainland China look to have a base in Hong Kong.</p><p>“Hong Kong’s Central district is being reshaped as western banks and financial institutions downsize or move out due to global challenges such as slower economic growth and increased compliance and regulations,” says <strong>Megan Walters</strong>, Head of Research, Asia Pacific, JLL. “Mainland Chinese wealth and asset companies are moving in as they seek to boost their presence in Hong Kong. This demand is expected to continue with the launch of the Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect program in December. The market is also set to get more fragmented since the initial requirement from these companies is usually less than 5,000 square feet. This could prove challenging for both tenants and landlords for the long term.”</p><p>Both Beijing and Shanghai fell a place to fourth and sixth position respectively. Tokyo leapfrogged past Shanghai to take fifth spot, propelled by high leasing activity and big-ticket pre-commitments, while New York has seen premium rents increase by more than 10 percent in 2016. Singapore takes 18th spot in the rankings after a rental correction with more office space supply in the city-state.</p><p>“The world’s most important and interconnected cities dominate the top spots in the rankings,” says Walters. “There is a clear demand for them as seen in how vacancy rates are less than 2 percent in three out of these six gateway cities, specifically Hong Kong, Beijing and Tokyo. And Singapore’s relatively lower rent gives it a competitive advantage over these costlier Asian gateway cities.”</p><h3><strong>About the JLL Global Premium Office Rent Tracker</strong></h3><p>In this second edition, the report compares like-for-like occupation costs across 35 major markets in 31 cities of differing function and evolution, ranging from Established World Cities (such as New York, London and Tokyo) through to Emerging World Cities (like Mexico City Moscow and Mumbai) and New World Cities (as typified by San Francisco, Sydney and Toronto). The Tracker includes the key elements of occupancy costs – net effective rent, service charges and property tax – all standardised to enable international comparisons.</p><h3><strong>The Top 10 Most Expensive City Districts For Renting Office Space</strong></h3><p>1.      Hong Kong, Central<br>2.      London, West End<br>3.      New York, Midtown<br>4.      Beijing<br>5.      Tokyo<br>6.      Shanghai<br>7.      Delhi<br>8.      San Francisco <br>9.      London, City<br>10.    Hong Kong, Island East </p> <br>Click <a href="http://www.jll.com/_layouts/15/FIXUPREDIRECT.ASPX?WebId=2c1c167f-d7d5-4fa4-9a10-c81e8534a187&TermSetId=666b5bd7-72ba-4fd4-9d3a-8b8baf05722e&TermId=ce658c17-f203-466e-b413-fe385226cb71" target="_blank">here</a> to download the report.<br> <p style="text-align:center;">​– ends –​​</p><p>​​</p><em style="line-height:1.6;">>>>Read more about​</em><a href="/china/en-gb/services" target="_blank"><em style="line-height:1.6;"> ​JLL Services​</em></a><p>​<em style="line-height:1.6;">>>>Read more about </em><em style="line-height:1.6;"></em><em style="line-height:1.6;"><a target="_blank" rel="nofollow" href="http://www.joneslanglasalle.com.cn/china/en-gb/news" style="line-height:1.6;">JLL News</a><br></em><em style="line-height:1.6;">>>>Read more a​bout​ </em><a target="_blank" rel="nofollow" href="http://www.joneslanglasalle.com.cn/china/en-gb/research" style="line-height:1.6;"><em>JLL Research​</em></a><em style="line-height:1.6;"><br></em>​​<br></p><span class="ms-rteFontSize-1 ms-rteThemeForeColor-5-0"><strong><em><br><br></em></strong></span><span class="ms-rteFontSize-1 ms-rteThemeForeColor-5-0"><strong><em>About JLL</em></strong></span><p><span class="ms-rteFontSize-1">JLL (NYSE: JLL) is a professional services and investment management firm offering specialized real estate services to clients seeking increased value by owning, occupying and investing in real estate.
