Short on time? Here are the highlights of our third quarter Suburban Office MarketView. To request the full report, fill out the form at the bottom of this post.
The Suburban Office market experienced a slow Q3 2017, recording 685,640 sq. ft. of negative absorption. A number of large blocks of space were returned throughout the market, primarily driven by relocations and added sublease space in the Route 128 West submarket. Fundamentals remain healthy despite these new vacancies, as demand remains steady and there are several large active requirements throughout the market.
Overall, availability and vacancy increased 30 basis points (bps) and 20 bps quarter-over-quarter to 21.3% and 19.0%, respectively, a direct result of the considerable added inventory.
