The Dayton retail market rode out the COVID-19 pandemic recording virtually no change in vacancy.

The Dayton retail market rode out the COVID-19 pandemic recording virtually no change in vacancy. Currently, overall market vacancy is 10.7%, which is no change on a year-over-year basis. Demand was driven by discounters and fitness concepts and these deals largely offset any losses that occurred across the region. The overall market asking rental rate fell by 6.5%, year-over-year, to $9.49 per square foot, although the community center sector did record a 3.2% increase over the same timeframe. Employment in the region, heavily dependent on the defense and healthcare sectors, has recovered quickly and the unemployment rate has fallen to 5.8% since the peak last spring.

  • The Dayton retail market has weathered the COVID storm recording virtually no change over the past 12 months.
  • Vacancy currently equals 10.7%, exactly the same reading since Q1 2020.
  • Construction activity is limited to a few small projects with very little scheduled for groundbreaking in the near-term.
  • Asking rental rates, however, have been impacted by diminished market activity, falling by 6.5%, year-over-year.

Growing up, I always knew I wanted a job where I would be in control of my career path, and commercial real estate has allowed me to do that both personally and professionally. I began my career as a retail and investment broker in 1989. Today, I leverage my previous brokerage experience and knowledge to oversee the strategic and daily operations of Colliers International | Greater Cincinnati and Dayton. Additionally, in 2012 founded the Colliers Cleveland office. As the Vice-Chairmain leading multiple offices, I prioritize providing the best strategic leadership and oversight to a truly remarkable team. In addition to commercial real estate, I have created a diversified and innovative family of companies providing brokerage sales, investment, construction, information technology, and property management services.

The experience I gained from holding various positions throughout my career has allowed me to reach a broad base of clients and establish valuable relationships throughout Greater Cincinnati and Dayton. These relationships have provided the opportunity to aid some of the region’s most successful companies in making sound real estate decisions.

In addition to my daily responsibilities with Colliers, I'm part of a great family, three great kids and  spouse who is so supportive. 

I find great joy in being involved in my community. One of my personal goals is to help the Cincinnati community and those around me to move forward and grow with energy and purpose. I am a member of various organizations serving the community such as the University of Cincinnati Foundation (Board Member), the University of Cincinnati UCATS (Board Member), the University of Cincinnati Diamond Club for Baseball (Chairman), the University of Cincinnati College of Business (Real Estate Board Member), the Greater Cincinnati Regional Business Committee, and Cincinnati Young Presidents Organization.

Todd Cochran

Brokerage First Vice President

Dayton

I am proud to represent Industrial landlords and tenants in the Greater Dayton market on behalf of Colliers.  I started my career in commercial real estate a few years out of college at a regional firm in Dayton.  There I began to learn what it takes to achieve the most success for my clients.  A few of the necessities are attention to detail, approaching each project with enthusiastic energy, truthfulness at all times and an exceptional work ethic.

As a lifelong Dayton resident, I know the market and people very well.  Strong relationships and market knowledge are two areas that require constant attention.  Colliers Research provides me up to date information on the overall market, but it is through my relationships and every day practice that I discern the micro-trends in the Dayton region.  Whether I am advising a landlord or tenant, I am confident I can provide the best information as they go through the decision making process, resulting in the most favorable transaction terms.
