Writing with an update on the Chicagoland office and sublease market.
The Chicago office market has reached a record-high for available sublease space, as tenants look to shed office space in response to the Coronoavirus Pandemic.
Office sublease space has increased nearly 22% since the start of the pandemic, with 8.2 million SF now available.
Softening demand and expanding office supply have increased vacancy in Chicago to mid-12%.
The 7.8 million square feet of office projects currently underway is expected to increase vacancy to over 13% by 2021.
This increased vacancy has allowed current tenants in the market to secure better pricing and greater concessions.
Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, rents have largely stagnated in Chicago, with year-over-year rent growth expected to turn negative in the back half of 2020 and into 2021.
Stay healthy and safe!
