Light at the End of the COVID-19 Tunnel?

The first half of 2021 is expected to have minimal leasing velocity, with many companies still evaluating what the future of their workspace will look like as they plan a return to the office following the broader distribution of COVID-19 vaccines. Optimistically, we are expecting increased transaction volume in the second half of the year as these companies look to implement their new real estate strategies. However, this will likely still result in increased vacancy, both on a direct and sublease basis, and negative absorption for calendar year 2021.
