In 1990 in the UK, 90% of leases of commercial property owned by financial institutions were for 20 and 25 years, almost certainly with upwardonly rent reviews every five years (ODPM, 2004). After the end of the 1980s property boom and in the midst of economic recession this is probably the high point of what was known as the ‘institutional lease’. By 2003, 60% of equivalent property had five-year leases or were subject to break clauses within five years, giving the tenant the option to terminate the lease.

The partial counter-counter response is that the volatility of the City of London office market is not the consequence of poor forecasting or even ‘mistakes’ but the interaction of a highly variable demand dominated by financial services and a tightly constrained supply (Dunse et al, 2010). Conclusions This chapter perhaps could have been better entitled ‘changing market fundamentals’. It traces the expansion of services, particularly business services, and the parallel growth of the office stock.

This leads on to a theoretical model of spatial structure which derives a land/rent gradient declining from the city centre. The focus of the remainder of the chapter is the apex of this rent gradient, the city centre. The chapter critically assesses the relevance of the model today. It develops the arguments for why we should look at a city’s office market as a system of submarkets and uses case studies to assess the practical criteria to formally identify them. The submarket framework is applied to analyse the investment concept of prime and the move toward a more polycentric office market.
