DFW Office Usage Update

By Steve Triolet, Younger Partners Research Director

Near the beginning of the year, I shared some info from Kastle Systems on office usage for the top 10 office markets across the country.  Back then and now, DFW remains the top market for office usage (office workers being physically back in the office on at least a hybrid model).  

To date, the usage numbers have not moved much this year, but several recent announcements (Microsoft, Google, Morgan Stanley, PwC, Fannie Mae, FDIC) all point toward improvement over the next few months, with post-Labor Day being the most common soft return date for several large corporations.  This date seems to be the consistence because of the start of a new school year and the end of summer.
