Market Reports

Washington, DC Q2 2017

A slight up-tick in leasing velocity last quarter was not enough to propel the Washington, DC market’s second quarter net absorption. The three largest leases for the quarter were all Federal renewals. The Department of Education’s 314,243-square-foot lease at 550 12th Street, NW led the quarter’s leasing activity when they signed in early May of this year. On the brighter side, because these leases were renewals, there was little to no contraction. Additionally, owners continue to be bullish with development in the District. Several new projects broke ground in the second quarter bringing the total square footage under development to just over 6.5 million square feet, nearly double what was under construction just a year prior.

Northern Virginia Q2 2017

Recovery from the downturn caused by Sequestration continued for the Northern Virginia office market as demand grew nearly 1.5 million square feet during the first half of 2017. While demand for the remainder of the year is forecasted to continue to grow, it will be at less than a third of what was witnessed during the first half. With the uncertainty of a Federal budget resolution, it is unclear how the Northern Virginia market will be impacted.

Suburban Maryland Q2 2017

Two new office developments are poised to break ground in the next eight months. The first being the follow up to the first phase at Pike and Rose, 909 Rose, scheduled to break ground in early 2018. The Pike and Rose development has been extremely successful in bringing a new live-work-play environment to the North Bethesda market. The second, 7272 Wisconsin Avenue, which will sit on the site of the former Apex Building, is being developed by the JBG companies with an expected ground breaking next quarter. Both high-end office buildings are bringing much needed quality to an overall market where it has been lacking.

Shenandoah Valley Industrial Q2 2017

The Shenandoah Valley market continued its upward trend during the second quarter of the year, with the asking rate for warehouse product averaging above $4.00 per square foot for the first time ever and with over 650,000 more square feet under construction compared to this time last year. Absorption remained positive, albeit far less than the 840,000 square feet that was occupied last quarter by groups such as Fiat Chrysler and Sealy, and vacancy remained flat at 6.8% with many users staying put and frantically searching the market for expansion space. In total, there exists more than 3.7 million square feet of active requirements in need of build-to-suit warehouse up and down the corridor.
