Writing with an update on the local office market. Chicago’s office market faces significant headwinds this cycle, with average vacancy currently at 13% and expected to reach 15% by mid-2021.
However, demand for newer suburban office properties remains strong. New suburban office properties have a vacancy rate of only 7% and an average rent of $32/SF (about $10/SF higher than the average suburban rent).
About 1/3 of new suburban office properties are medical, as the aging suburban population requires additional healthcare resources. Illinois has so far reported relatively few layoffs in the healthcare industry, suggesting that medical office tenants may be better positioned to survive a COVID-19 induced recession.
Stay healthy and safe.
