Q2 2022 Puget Sound Industrial Market Report

Tenant demand has continued to be strong, but economic forces have delayed some decisions, encouraging users to proceed more cautiously than they have been for the last two years. Despite a temporary cooling of market activity, construction continues in anticipation of future demand. With 9.3 million sq uare feet being developed across the region, 61.2% of it, or 5. 7 million square feet, is in Northend and Kent Valley.

Q2 2022 Eastside Office Report

Eastside activity cooled this spring in the face of increasing economic uncertainties related to inflation, war in Ukraine, and supply chain disruptions. Year-to-date, there has been almost 750,000 square feet of positive absorption, primarily because Amazon moved into 1001 Towers. This brought vacancy to 9.4%, which is near the Q4 2020 vacancy prior to most of the pandemic occupancy adjustments of 2021 on the Eastside. Asking rents inching upward downtown suggested that despite the prevailing headwinds, there is sufficient demand in the face of still-dwindling supply of quality space. With 80.8% of the 5.6 million square feet under construction, there are not significant options on the horizon for tenants looking to lease in a new project.
