The U.S. office sector posted the highest quarterly absorption of the recovery to date, 13.9 million square feet. Q2 also posted 61.9 million square feet of leasing activity, with levels up 6.2 percent from Q1. Vacancy dropped by 30 basis points to a recovery low of 16.3 percent. Asking rents declined by 0.7 percent to $30.00 per square foot, but that number is deceiving as blocks of Class A space have been taken off the market.
Overall, the leasing environment continues to favor landlords, putting tenants in tough negotiation positions.
