Cumberland/Galleria starts 2020 off with highest negative quarter absorption since 2017

Download Report

Cumberland/Galleria started the year off losing just under 100,000 square feet of tenant occupancy. This is the submarket's highest negative quarter of absorption since the first quarter of 2017.

Key Takeaways

  • Large move-ins during Q1 were few which resulted in the occupancy loss. Most of the vacancies that took place were contractions or consolidations of existing tenant spaces.
  • The submarket's overall vacancy rate increased 30 basis points (0.3%) as a result of the negative absorption. Class A vacancy remained relatively steady though and is still at its lowest point in three years.
  • Construction activity is unchanged from last year with thyssenkrupp's new office tower the only significant building in development.
  • Although Q1 was negative, leasing activity during the quarter was solid which should translate into gains later in the year. The unknown is how the coronavirus pandemic affects the submarket.
