During the last 2-3 years, the Bangkok’s office building market has been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, often known as Covid 19. As situation, many companies have asked staff to work from home more commonly, so it reducing the need for offices. Combined with other issues, entrepreneurs are shrinking the size of their offices. As a result, several office buildings have had to lower their rates to meet demand. However, since the announcement of COVID 19, being a local disease has also resulted in market dynamics. Bangkok office building slowly recovers.
