Suburban Office Market Sees Vacancy and Availability Decrease and a Bifurcation Taking Place
The suburban office market saw multiple statistical improvements to end the year. The overall vacancy rate decreased from 18.9% Mid-Year to 17.5%. Availability also decreased from 24.4% at Mid-Year to 23.2%. Even though a large tenant migration to the CBD occurred earlier in 2014, the suburban office market was able to record 929,540 SF of positive absorption for the year. These statistical improvements have led to a healthier suburban office market.
