Identification software company Q5id and digital display manufacturing company Planar subleased or leased large swaths of space in Hillsboro this quarter, nearly 150,000 square feet.

This continues to soften Class A asking rents, which are down 5.9% from last year in the CBD, or $36.04 per square foot full service.
