Philadelphia Office Space Market Update

No Comments »

The center of economic activity in Pennsylvania, Philadelphia is known for its scrumptious cheesesteak and soft pretzels.  A city with more outdoor sculptures and murals than any other in the U.S., The City of Brotherly Love boasts a thriving mix of arts, culture, and ethnicity.  Sports teams abound, representing all the major leagues, including football, basketball, and baseball.

Philadelphia is home to several Fortune 500 companies, and economically represents information technology, manufacturing, food processing, and health care.  As there are many national historical sites within its borders, the city’s economy is also heavily represented by tourism. 

Its central location, exciting and emerging arts scene, sports teams, and affordably diverse neighborhoods makes Philadelphia a desirable urban city for over 1.5 million people.

The Philadelphia office market leasing activity increased in the first quarter 2013.  New construction is taking place in the educational, medical sectors, on a build-to-suit basis.  Suburban buildings are being renovated in place of new construction.  Many companies are opting to either downsize, or renew their existing leases.

Coworking is the latest trend to hit the Office Space market. I thought it would be interesting to find out what they think they are selling. To do so I decided to track down the tag lines many coworking spaces are using. Here is a sampling of them. As you can see, the ideas that permeate are that "It's The People" who you can collaborate with and an "Alternative to the traditional workplace" are the most important ingredients.

US Office Space Has Bottomed: CoStar Report

1 Comment »

It seems as though it has been a couple of weeks of good news for the US office space market.  CoStar has just come out with their State of the U.S. Office Market: Mid-Year 2010 Review & Forecast.According to their study, office space vacancy rates have stabilized and office vacancy rates that appear to have peaked and are no longer on the rise .

A few notable points from the report:

Office job growth has spurred positive net Office Space absorption. Office Vacancy Rates have peaked with some office markets even reporting Increases in average office Rents.

Of the 20 largest office markets, eight of them posted positive net absorption so far this year, three of them had little or no change, but nine did post negative net absorption. Washington DC led the country with 2 million square feet of net absorption followed by Denver with 1.6 million and Minneapolis with 1.3 million. New York City had 2.8 million square feet of negative net absorption, Los Angeles with a negative 2 million and Philadelphia at negative 1 million. But even the markets experiencing negative absorption were doing so at much reduced levels compared with last year.

New York, Long Island and Minneapolis office space markets are all now reporting single-digit office space vacancy rates of 9% or less.

If the current pace of office space absorption and delivery trends hold, CoStar projects the office vacancy rate will go from 13.6% to less than 11% sometime in 2013.

From a commercial real estate perspective, as long as you have any net job growth, it is eating away at the vacancies out there. The most important thing here is that this positive employment growth in the office sector will be reducing standing inventories of (available) space.
