Reports: Office Rental Rates to Rise This Year

1 Comment »

According to two reports, one by Cushman & Wakefield and the other by Marcus & Millichap, office space rental rates will begin to rise again by the end of 2011 or early  2012. The increase in office rental rates will not be across the board, but uneven throughout the country. Markets that will see the biggest increases in office rental rates are expected to be Washington DC, San Francisco and Midtown Manhattan. The reason; improving employment and limited new construction. According to Marcus & Millichap less than 20 million square feet of new supply is scheduled to come on line throughout the US in 2011. More confirmation that the bottom of the market is here.  For tenants wanting to make sure they can take advantage of the low office rental rates, now is the time to either renew, renegotiate of relocate to get the best possible office rental rates. Contact us if you would like the assitance of a top local tenant rep. We'd be happy to help!

Report: Office Rental Markets Improving

No Comments »

The Real Deal March 31, 2011 Office rents and absorption will rise over the next two years in urban and suburban business districts, according to Cushman & Wakefield's office market forecast released today. Though office rents remain low in the U.S., the report determined that a lack of new supply coupled with rising demand will force rents upward in half of all central business districts - or urban business centers - by 2013. And while 2010 saw just 2.2 million square feet absorbed in cities, by 2012 that number should grow more than six-fold to 13.9 million square feet. New York City will lead the charge, along with Washington D.C., Boston, Seattle and Chicago, as those areas will combine to account for nearly two-thirds of that space. Suburban office vacancies will also decline between now and 2013, but at a slower rate than those of central business districts. Almost half of all suburban markets will see office rent declines between now and 2013, and five areas - including Miami - will see office rents dip below 2010 bottoms.

Report: US Office Markets Improving

No Comments »

According to CB Richard Ellis' December 2010 Global Market View the 4th Quarter saw that the global markets are improving, but have quite a way to go before they become healthy.

From the report: "American office markets continue to lag those of Europe and Asia Pacific, but in Washington, D.C., net absorption reached 3.9 million sq. ft. year to date, the first time demand has outpaced supply in multi-tenant buildings in the region since 2007. Vacancy declined almost 200 basis points during the past six months in Washington, D.C., to 10.3%, which is the largest decline of any U.S. office market. Asking rents increased by 1.8% during the quarter and are expected to remain at current levels or increase slightly during the next six to 12 months in the city."

Slow Recovery for US Office Space Market Beginning

No Comments »

According to an recent article at Reuters.com, the US is approaching the turning point in the office space downturn and should start to see a slow recovery over the next couple of years.

"The U.S. office vacancy rate is expected to peak in the middle of next year at 16.8 percent, as it did in 2003, and is expected to fall very slowly to 16.4 percent by the end of 2011 and to 15.3 percent by the end of 2012, according to CBRE Econometric Advisors.

Real estate research firm REIS Inc also sees a slow office recovery. REIS sees the U.S. office vacancy rate peaking at 17.7 percent at the end of this year and then slipping to 17.4 percent by the end of next year.

"There's nothing in the job market that's pointing to a quick lease-up of space," said Victor Calanog, REIS director of real estate."

The good news is that the bottom appears to be near.  The bad news is that it will be a long slow recovery that will most likely parrallel the economic recovery of the US.

There are a few major markets that are already seeing good improvement. Both Manhattan and Washingtom DC has seen a lot of leasing activity. Ironically, they are the two most expensive markets in the US.
