Chicagoland Office Market Update

Writing with an update on the local office market in Chicagoland.

Social distancing measures have resulted in a dramatic downshift in office leasing, sales, and development activity.  Average office vacancy should temporarily increase by 1% due to lower demand and unfortunately timed development projects.  That said, average vacancy in 2020 should remain under 13% for the year the seventh year in a row.  Average rents in 2020 should decrease by 3% before recovering in 2021 or early 2022.

Even before the Corona virus, office sales were already got off to a sluggish start in 2020.  Total sales volume for the last twelve months fell to $3 billion for the first time since 2011, due to a pullback in the Class A downtown submarket.  This submarket’s decline is the result of record-high pricing and uncertainty regarding local real estate taxes.  The economic downturn will further depress sales volume and prices across all Chicagoland submarkets.

Stay healthy and safe.
