Market Reports

Market Reports

With the exception of retail, all sectors of the Columbus Region commercial real estate market continue to favor landlords.

The industrial sector absorbed almost 4 million square feet the last 3 months of 2016, allowing landlords to continue to push up rental rates. Bullish developers are reacting with 2.7 million square feet of space under construction, much of which is speculative.

The office sector is performing in a similar fashion with 250,000 square feet of net absorption, and landlords benefiting with slightly higher rates and fewer concessions. Class B occupancy continues to lag class A, translating into attractive deals for tenants who don’t mind occupying older buildings.

The retail sector continues to confound landlords as change seems to be the only constant. Among the brands recently announcing both national and local store closings were Giant Eagle, Macy’s, The Andersons and The Limited. Even so called “category killer” Target Corporation is expected to open less than a handful of stores nationwide in 2017.

Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, NAI Ohio Equities has the market intelligence to help you navigate whatever 2017 has in store.
