Northeast Atlanta sees back-to-back quarters of positive absorption in the first quarter of 2020

Download Report

For the first time in three years, Northeast Atlanta had back-to-back quarters of positive absorption. The submarket absorbed just over 63,000 square feet in the first quarter.

Key Takeaways

  • Almost all of the occupancy gains in Q1 occurred in Class B & C properties. The area of the submarket seeing the most Class A absorption is Peachtree Corners which has begun to see some resurgence over the past few quarters.
  • The drop in vacancy this quarter brings the overall submarket's rate to its lowest level in ten years.
  • Right as the Northeast Atlanta submarket begins seeing positive momentum, the COVID-19 pandemic hits. It is too early to see how this might negatively impact the submarket, however, given that Northeast Atlanta is a suburban office node in the midst of revitalization could be a benefit. Also, the tenant makeup of the submarket; being R&D, technology and other types of companies somewhat unaffected by the pandemic, could favor the area as well.
