Office Demand Is Alive and Well in These Cities
Jim Adler, executive vice president, Office Services Group, for NAI Hiffman, tells GlobeSt.com that 7 million square feet of new leasing activity in the Chicago suburbs in 2022 were enough to absorb the amount of space added to the market, effectively maintaining vacancy from the beginning of the year.
“That’s a very different story from the previous six quarters of negative absorption in 2021 and 2020,” Adler said. “We view this as a very positive sign in that while we continue to see blocks of space added to the market, there was an equal amount of tenant demand to offset the negative trend. As more companies return to the office, the vacancy outlook for 2023 also remains promising.”
