What we can help you with...

Absorption of office space continues across all qualities of properties which typically indicates the office market is under supplied. Demand for office space is being driven by Denver’s highly desirable quality of life that is attracting young, educated workers and driving corporate expansion and relocation. Unemployment in the Denver area is low, under 3% depending on your source.

The Denver office space market has become a real challenge for tenants having to make a lease decision, especially those with office lease renewals on long term leases. Tenants renewing their leases are finding that the office rental rates have increases of 15% to 40% from what they are paying and this is causing many office tenants to relocate to lower quality space. The Denver office market is no longer a level playing field. Tenants are having sticker shock with the increase in lease rates. Landlords are offering fewer concessions and incentives. In addition, Landlords can now be very choosey about the tenants they will approve. Some tenants are finding out that their Landlord will not renew their lease if their credit worthiness is not good, even though they have been making on time rent payments.

Tenants are having to compete for good space. Landlords receive multiple offers to lease the same space. Especialy for spaces under 10,000 sf. Credit is the key for tenants. If the tenant’s financial statement is not as strong as another offer, they will not get the space. As we said earlier, it is a Landlord’s market. All of this means that tenants must start their process of considering a renewal, relocation or expansion much earlier than in the past, in some cases, over a year in advance of when they need the space. Having the assistance of an experienced Denver office tenant rep, will make the process go much smoother and help in assuring a good outcome.

Average asking rates for Denver office space for rentor lease have continued to increase. Asking lease rates have surpassed their prerecession peaks with class A rates in the central business district exceeding the previous all-time high and class A rates in the Southeast suburban market hitting a new high as well. Denver has become an aging office market and older buildings have become functionally obsolete. With 88% of the central business district buildings older than 21 years and 54% of southeast suburban office properties older than 21 years, tenants will continue to look towards new construction or build-to-suits to get the infrastructure required for today’s business climate.

The strength in the office space market in Denver comes from energy resources and professional business services industries that are at the forefront of the market's tenant demand. This strength is expected to continue to provide stable growth. The downside to this for tenants is that rental rates will continue to rise as time goes by.

Denver Office Space for Lease or Rent: Current Conditions

Those of you looking to move your office to or in Denver, Colorado picked a good city to work in thanks to a bustling economy there. However, before you make a final decision, you'll want to look at the Denver office market to see if it truly suits your budget. It's important to look at vacancy rates, and rental rates before you do any leasing.

You'll also want to look at various submarkets to see what's going on there in the way of office rental statistics.

First, let's look at what's happening in Denver when it comes to office space availability. You may find some surprises on what's available in a popular region.

The second-best place to live in the country.  Recently, U.S. News conducted a survey with more than 2000 U.S. residents. Based on the result, following Austin, TX as the first, Denver got the 2nd best place to live in the US. Denver is also consistently listed among the strongest economies in the nation. In addition, according to CBRE, investment activity in metro Denver totaled $710.30 M in the second quarter of the year. The largest individual trade was the $127.3 M sale of 410 17th ST. in the downtown submarket to Rialto Capital.

Denver metro marked closely 37,700 new jobs year-over-year as of the first quarter of the year. Unemployment rate is at 3.6% persistently overtaking the national average of 3.8%.  Major infrastructure improvements are ongoing across the Denver metro area, one of these are Central I- 70 redevelopment, National Stock Show Complex and the multi-billion dollar renovation project to DIA. Possible headwinds may rise, as new legislative measures could obstruct region’s growth in the future. Nonetheless, US’ economy approaches its longest expansion phase in the history, Denver is projected to continue to grow throughout the 2019 as the premier location in the Rocky Mountain region.

Metro Denver fundamentals sustained its strength in the second half of 2019 with positive absorption; vacancy is going down with an increase in the average direct asking rate. Metro Denver posted 450,438 sq. ft. positive net absorption in Q2 2019, dominantly occupying Class A space.

Denver metro’s industrial market vacancy marked 5.1% during the first quarter of 2019, it has 40 basis points (bps) increase quarter-over-quarter. On office market, direct vacancy in metro Denver went down by 168 bps year-over-year giving it an 11.9% vacancy rate. Asking rate is however increasing for the past years and ending at $28.43 per sq. ft. full-service gross (FSG).

Some of the more popular Denver office submarkets include:

Downtown / Central Business District Office Market 
One of the largest office submarkets in Denver with over 25 million square feet and one of the most active. This is the area geographically bounded by Cherry Creek / Speer Boulevard, Market Street, 20th Street, Sherman Street and Colfax Avenue. Also defined by its zoning which allows the highest building density in the city.

The downtown submarket was on top in 2018 with annual net absorption of 1.2 million sq. ft. this movement continued this year. Class A dominated the activity in this market posting YTD net absorption of 437, 476 square feet. However, Class B and Class C sectors remains flat with an absorption of 71,880 square feet and negative 8, 935 square feet. Generally, vacancy raised at 16% from 16.6% during the first quarter of 2019 and marked down 163 basis points from 17.6% last year. Class recorded $43.50 per sq. ft, an almost 52% from the cyclical low of $28.50 per square feet back in 2009.

Denver Tech Center Office Market 
The Denver Technological Center, or the Tech Center, or DTC was planned and designed in the early 1970s as one of the first mixed-used commercial parks in the Denver area. The Master Plan included an original 40 acre plan as well as potential for an 800 acre development. The plan has since grown to 850 acres and over 25 million square feet of buildings have been completed. It’s now one of the two largest office submarkets in the Denver Metro area. The majority of office buildings within the Tech Center are mid-rise and range from Class C space up to some of the most expensive Class A office space in the metro area. Major companies headquartered in the Tech Center are Synergy Services, Great West Life & Annuity Insurance, PDCS, Re/Max, and Skyport Companies. The predominant office landlords are Lowe Enterprises, Legacy Partners, Cornerstone Real Estate Advisers, and Metropolitan Life Insurance. We have a 30-year history of representing tenants successfully within the DTC and knows all of the most popular office buildings there. One advantage to locating in the DTC vs downtown is the free surface parking offered at most of the office buildings.

Auraria Office Market
Located adjacent to the west of the CBD. Auraria includes the area around the confluence of Cherry Creek and the South Platte River. It is named for the original location of what is now Denver. With the exception of the college campus which includes the University of Colorado at Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver and Denver Community College, all of the buildings are turn of the century one to three story office buildings.

Ballpark Office Market 
Located adjacent on the north of the CBD. The area is named for Coors Field, Home of MLB’s Colorado Rockies. The area contains turn of the century mixed use building, which provide “loft style” offices, and more recently is being redeveloped with low and midrise office buildings.

Capitol Hill Office Market
This is the location of the Colorado State Capitol building and is the area east and southeast of the CBD. This submarket includes old multi-family buildings and low rise, midrise and high rise office buildings. The newest developments include the Colorado Supreme Court building and The Denver Art Museum.

Cherry Creek Office Market 
The Cherry Creek office submarket surrounds the Cherry Creek Mall in Central Denver and lies to the Southeast of downtown. The submarket is bounded by 6th Avenue to the North, Alameda Avenue to the South, York St to the West and Colorado Boulevard to the East. While it in no way is a large submarket, it is one of the most expensive in the Metro area. This has become a popular part of town for large mutual fund companies to have their headquarters – Including Janus Capital Group, Berger Associates, and Cambiar Investors. It’s also becoming popular with several large endowment funds such as the Daniels Fund, the Adolph Coors Foundation, and The Denver Foundation. The location is popular for the abundance of gourmet restaurants, hotels, and shopping. Drawbacks to locating in this area besides the high rents are the lack of affordable parking. Rents are equal to those found downtown. Even though there are four new mixed-use office buildings under construction now in the submarket, rents are not expected to drop. We are very familiar with the Cherry Creek office submarket and can help you find reasonable office rents there!

OUTLOOK

The outlook for metro Denver office space remains positive as Q2 ended with good leasing activity and increased projected development activity. Office construction still growing with nearly 2.3 million sq. ft. of active construction projects and new activity in the suburban submarkets. Increasing asking rates for premium or new spaces will continue to be balanced by the property owners, offering discounted rates and more incentives at existing buildings. Office users in the coworking, business processing services and technology industries will continue to lead the activity by expanding into the market and backfilling vacant spaces. Growth in these industries will help the fundamentals in the metro Denver market office grow.
