Atlanta (Urban Core) 2018 ERI Report

Atlanta (Urban Core) 2018 ERI Report

April 25, 2018

Tenants faced higher occupancy costs during 2017. Registering its sixth consecutive year of rental rate growth, negotiated rent exceeded $40/sf for the first-time on record. Sustained demand from tech companies and professional/business services kept leasing volume steady. The second half of the year brought some signs that office-using employment was losing a bit of its momentum. Leasing also appeared to be cooling slightly. This may temper rent growth in 2018. 

 
 
 
Austin (CBD) 2018 ERI Report

Austin (CBD) 2018 ERI Report

April 25, 2018

Tenants faced higher occupancy costs during 2017 as the region's tech sector fueled steady demand in the CBD. Registering its sixth consecutive annual increase, effective rent for top-tier buildings pushed even higher into record territory. New construction in the Domain will offer tenants another set of high-quality office buildings in an amenity-rich setting, but rent in these properties is also very elevated. Tenants will face higher rent in 2018. 

 
 
 
Chicago (CBD) 2018 ERI Report

Chicago (CBD) 2018 ERI Report

April 25, 2018

Businesses in Chicago showed continued willingness to pay record rent for quality space. Much of the new trophy product was pre-leased in 2016. Fewer leases were completed in trophy buildings during 2017. In turn, negotiated rent inched up by only 0.3%, compared to a spike of 6.0% in 2016. Tenant effective rent fell by 2.6% as landlords extended generous improvement allowances. Little change is expected in 2018 – negotiated rent will increase only moderately.

 
 
 
Dallas (CBD) 2018 ERI Report

Dallas (CBD) 2018 ERI Report

April 25, 2018

Downtown has struggled to land some of the most rapidly expanding firms, but had some success during 2017 as its strong value-plays and improving amenity base attracted geographically flexible companies. Newer buildings along Ross Avenue and in the Arts District have seen stronger demand and are achieving sharper rent growth. Little change is anticipated in 2018.

 
 
 
Dallas (Uptown/Turtle Creek) 2018 ERI Report

Dallas (Uptown/Turtle Creek) 2018 ERI Report

April 25, 2018

Businesses relocating from higher-cost East and West Coast markets continue to show a strong preference for Uptown. They are drawn to its amenity-rich setting, ample nearby luxury retail and residences and growing pool of top-tier buildings. Owners have been able to steadily increase negotiated rent in the last several years and further rent increases are likely in 2018.

 
 
 
Denver 2018 ERI Report

Denver 2018 ERI Report

April 25, 2018

Sustained activity among tech and creative sector firms, combined with a recovering energy sector, boosted demand during 2017. Landlords increased concessions, contributing to a decrease in tenant effective rent. Larger and mid-sized tenants tapped into a deeper pool of space options in Midtown and Uptown, supporting some rental rate growth in these areas that lagged LoDo during 2016.

 
 
 
Houston (CBD) 2018 ERI Report

Houston (CBD) 2018 ERI Report

April 25, 2018

Leasing volume in the region rebounded late in 2017 as energy prices started to rise and tenants took advantage of lower rent and favorable terms. Ample sublet supply and elevated availability forced landlords to make further reductions to rent. Heading into 2018, energy firms and other sectors appear to be slowly increasing their investment and hiring. Nevertheless, with availability rates exceeding 25% in nearly all areas, landlords will still lack the leverage to boost rent.

 
 
 
Los Angeles (Downtown) 2018 ERI Report

Los Angeles (Downtown) 2018 ERI Report

April 25, 2018

Dependency on the legal, banking and professional/business services sectors kept leasing in Downtown Los Angeles from gaining much momentum during 2017. Tenant effective rent pushed above $30/sf in 2017, but is still well below rent in West Los Angeles. The greater Los Angeles economy seems to be losing some momentum and may have already pushed past its peak. Moderating demand should curb rent growth during 2018.

 
 
 
Los Angeles (Westside) 2018 ERI Report

Los Angeles (Westside) 2018 ERI Report

April 25, 2018

Tenant effective rent posted its third consecutive year-on-year increase. Effective rent rose at roughly the same amount as in 2016, but concessions jumped by more than 10%. Tenants displayed additional price resistance during 2017. Some found space in alternative areas such as El Segundo and Playa Vista. Consolidation in the media and entertainment sector could temper leasing activity and rent increases in 2018.

 
 
 
Manhattan (Downtown) 2018 ERI Report

Manhattan (Downtown) 2018 ERI Report

April 25, 2018

The average value of concessions soared to $129/sf during 2017, offsetting a slight increase in taking rent, and causing a 7.8% decline in tenant effective rent to $39.47. Much of the Class A space remaining in Lower Manhattan is priced well above $60/sf. Consequently, any reduction in effective rent in 2018 will be sparked primarily by further increases in concessions.
