As per the study, Mumbai rentals are higher than cities like Los Angeles, Singapore, Paris, Seoul, Sydney, Frankfurt, Chicago and Toronto.

"Regionally, cities across Asia-Pacific are home to the world's most expensive premium office space at an average of USD 111 per square foot per year, which is higher than the Americas (USD 85 psft per year) and EMEA region (USD 78 psft per year)," JLL India CEO and Country Head Ramesh Nair said.

According to the report, Hong Kong's Central continues to be the world's most expensive office sub-market globally.
