Co-Working Dominates Q3 Office Absorption

Of the almost 200,000 square feet of overall office net absorption taking place in the third quarter of 2019, over 90% was directly attributed to co-working companies, including new locations for Common Desk, WeWork, Hana and Spaces, says Younger Partners Research Director Steve Triolet.

While this level of concentration is not expected to carry over into the fourth quarter (American Airlines, Pioneer Natural Resources and Tenet Healthcare all have large pending move-ins), co-working has been a significant portion of overall net absorption over the past two years and is likely to remain a significant factor for the foreseeable future (including pre-leasing of under construction projects like Weir’s Plaza).
