Q2 2022 Eastside Office Report

Download Report
Eastside activity cooled this spring in the face of increasing economic uncertainties related to inflation, war in Ukraine, and supply chain disruptions. Year-to-date, there has been almost 750,000 square feet of positive absorption, primarily because Amazon moved into 1001 Towers. This brought vacancy to 9.4%, which is near the Q4 2020 vacancy prior to most of the pandemic occupancy adjustments of 2021 on the Eastside. Asking rents inching upward downtown suggested that despite the prevailing headwinds, there is sufficient demand in the face of still-dwindling supply of quality space. With 80.8% of the 5.6 million square feet under construction, there are not significant options on the horizon for tenants looking to lease in a new project.
