Class B vacancies sink Northeast Atlanta office absorption in first quarter of 2021.

Coming off a decent quarter of office occupancy gains in Q4, Northeast Atlanta returned to negative results in the first quarter thanks to a number of Class B office vacancies. The (223,000) square-foot occupancy loss was the fourth highest in the Atlanta market.
