Cincinnati Retail 21Q2 Report

The Greater Cincinnati retail market can best be described as stable. The market has recorded occupancy gains over the past two years and leasing activity has remained steady.

New construction activity remains modest by historical standards and has not contributed to excess vacancy due to the delivery of projects for a single-tenant or others with significant pre-leasing activity. The conversion of retail properties to alternate uses has also reduced vacancy levels, while also contributing to steadily increasing rental rates as high vacancy, poorly located properties have been removed from the market.

Not only was virtually every important aspect of the U.S. economy touched on by the two panelists, but a brief look at Cincinnati’s economic position added a helpful local anecdote. As this write-up will illustrate, the sharp recovery thus far is incredible and promising, but struggling sectors still remain, a new administration will begin its policy changes with broad economic implications, and debates have already begun about the risk of a potentially overheated economic system.
