Atlanta's Midtown absorbs the most office space since 2014 in Q1 2020

Download Report

Midtown had the second highest occupancy gains in the Atlanta market this quarter; the most space absorbed in the submarket since 2014.

Key Takeaways

  • The positive Q1 activity resulted in Midtown leading Atlanta in office vacancy decline. The submarket's vacancy rate decreased by 180 basis points (1.8%) this quarter. A host of occupancies at 725 Ponce, which delivered last year, helped contribute to this drop.
  • Anthem's first phase building of 352,000 square feet delivered this quarter. The insurer's occupancy in the building was the largest in the submarket in Q1.
  • Midtown still leads the Atlanta office market in office construction activity. It also continues to lead in the highest average rental rate.
  • Preliminarily, the submarket is expected to see yet another positive quarter of absorption next quarter; however, COVID-19 could negatively impact Midtown like all others. Still, the submarket's solid fundamentals make it practically resistant to the pandemic's pressures on business activity.
