2022 Q2 Portland Metro Office Market Report

Marking the halfway point of 2022, Q2 brought about deepened challenges to Portland’s office market. Impacted by a growing list of headwinds, 523,000 square feet of space was given back to the market through negative net absorption, bringing the year-to-date net absorption total to -701,000. The conclusion of the quarter marks 10 consecutive quarters of market-wide negative net absorption. Since Q1 2020, over 4.5 million square feet of occupancy has been lost, increasing the vacancy from 10.5% to 17.5% over the same period. For perspective, Portland’s net negative absorption since the start of COVID-19 is equivalent to the US Bancorp Tower fully vacating nearly four times over. Prior to the pandemic’s start, the market historically recorded 186,000 square feet of positive net absorption per quarter on average over a sixteen-year period. Sporting a causal relationship with net absorption, vacancy in the Greater Portland market has also reached a new 20-year high, with a vacancy rate of 17.5%. The vacancy rate is highest in the Central Business District (CBD), where just under 25% of the space is vacant.

2022 Q1 Portland Metro Office Market Report

The start of the new year brought minor change to Portland office market fundamentals. Most notable is the confluence of rents in the CBD and Portland’s suburbs with the delta between asking rents in the two market sectors being $0.66 for Class A product and only $0.22 across all building classes. Market-wide vacancy saw a 2.3% uptick year-over-year, from 14.6% in Q1 2021 to 16.9% this quarter.

Q2 2021 Portland Metro Office Report

Portland’s office market was buoyed by positive leasing activity news this quarter: nine leases over 25,000 sq. ft. were signed, including several renewals of major tenants in Class A towers downtown. Tenants new to Portland include Apple and Lululemon, locating in Sunset Corridor/Hillsboro and NW Close-in, respectively. With Oregon schools opening for in-person instruction this fall, there will be more reasons for people to return to working from their physical offices, spurring economic activity downtown. Overall vacancy in the CBD has surpassed 20.0% this quarter after increasing 5.6% in 4 quarters, increasing from 15.4% one year ago to 21.0% now. Rents on new construction will remain firm but concessions will continue to chip away at net effective rents until there is more demand than supply.
