Philadelphia 2018 ERI Report

Philadelphia 2018 ERI Report

April 25, 2018

Sustained leasing in education and health care, coupled with modest expansion among law firms, banks and professional/business services sectors kept activity in Center City’s Class A sector on a steady track. Effective rent fell slightly, due to fewer leases in trophy buildings in 2017 and near-record concession packages. Demand for quality product is seemingly quite strong. In turn, tenants will encounter slightly higher rent in Center City’s top-tier properties during 2018.

 
 
 
Phoenix 2018 ERI Report

Phoenix 2018 ERI Report

April 25, 2018

Despite clear signs that hiring activity in the region was cooling, activity in top-tier Class A buildings was relatively sustained during 2017. Landlords were bullish as negligible new construction and steady leasing kept availability in Class A properties within Chandler, Tempe, Scottsdale and Downtown tight. Tenants are likely to face more modest rent increases during 2018 as hiring and leasing appear to have decelerated.

 
 
 
Raise the Roof! When to consider cubic clear heights for your warehouse operations

Raise the Roof! When to consider cubic clear heights for your warehouse operations

April 25, 2018

Shrinking availability of industrial land and shifting consumer demands are driving average warehouse clear heights to new levels. When does it make sense for industrial tenants to considering moving to higher clear-height buildings for their warehouse operations?

 
 
 
San Diego 2018 ERI Report

San Diego 2018 ERI Report

April 25, 2018

Leasing volume in Downtown San Diego was sustained, totaling 1.0 msf during 2017. The relocation of a few tenants from suburban locations and increased interest from the tech sector boosted activity. In the wake of a couple of years of sustained activity, the pool of quality Class A space Downtown has been depleted. Tenants will face increased rent during 2018 as landlords take advantage of a limited set of quality blocks and negligible construction.

 
 
 
San Jose 2018 ERI Report

San Jose 2018 ERI Report

April 25, 2018

Negligible space options and spiking rent in Mountain View, Sunnyvale and Menlo Park prompted more tenants to consider Downtown San Jose. Plans for major developments surrounding Didiron Station have given companies an even bigger push. In turn, landlords achieved the sharpest increase in effective rent during this cycle. Tenants will encounter additional decreases in concession packages in 2018 as occupancy levels remain at their highest level in years.

 
 
 
Seattle 2018 ERI Report

Seattle 2018 ERI Report

April 25, 2018

Tech firms engaged in a bidding war for talent and quality space during 2017. Landlords were able to pull back on free rent and improvement allowances. Leasing volume in Seattle reached its highest intensity since 1999 and 2000, as top tech firms started warehousing space, and a few committed to entire properties. With limited quality space options, some owners may trim concessions in 2018. Free rent periods could fall slightly and tenants can also anticipate less flexibility on lease options.

 
 
 
Sunnyvale/Santa Clara 2018 ERI Report

Sunnyvale/Santa Clara 2018 ERI Report

April 25, 2018

Tenants continue to face extremely challenging conditions in Sunnyvale and Cupertino. Much of the rental rate growth occurred in 2016, but frenetic demand from both top tech firms and rapidly expanding startups has kept competition for space very heated. Landlords pulled back slightly on free rent and extended generous tenant improvements only for larger, creditworthy firms. Companies will face added rent hikes in 2018.

 
 
 
Tampa Bay 2018 ERI Report

Tampa Bay 2018 ERI Report

April 25, 2018

Leasing volume remained steady in 2017. Combined Class A deal volume in the Tampa CBD and Westshore exceeded 1.0 msf for the second consecutive year. Landlords have been able to push rent steadily higher. Construction of Class A buildings is poised to hit record levels in 2020. For the time being, though, new development is still very limited. Tenants seeking larger high-quality blocks will have few options in the short term, enabling landlords to push rents higher.

 
 
 
Washington, DC 2018 ERI Report

Washington, DC 2018 ERI Report

April 25, 2018

Conditions diverged widely by building quality during 2017. Demand in the very highest-caliber newer buildings was once again very strong. Older properties with outdated space layouts and amenities struggled. Concessions rose along with face rents, as landlords used increasingly generous incentives to lure tenants to their properties. In turn, despite a slight jump in taking rent, effective rent dipped slightly. Tenants should remain in the driver’s seat during 2018.

 
 
 
Non-Residential Real Estate Activity: "Improved"

Non-Residential Real Estate Activity: "Improved"

April 19, 2018

April’s Beige Book report, the Federal Reserve’s qualitative assessment of conditions across the country’s 12 Districts, suggested that economic growth over the last month was split between “modest and moderate” as shown in Table 1. Headlining the list of concerns was the potential impact from the newly imposed (and proposed) tariffs, with contacts in the manufacturing and transportation industries expressing the most worry. (China has since filed a formal complaint with the WTO over the steel and aluminum tariffs.)
