Q3-2022 Office Market Update
The Twin Cities Office Market continued a trend of negative absorption in all classes of space through the 3rd quarter, 2022. While there was less negative absorption in Q3 compared to Q2, the trend is expected to continue as companies search to find the right balance between employees working from the office, home, or a hybrid solution. It is expected that the market will see further consolidation in occupied space from Twin Cities corporate users. This will likely result in more sublease space being brought to the market raising the already high overall vacancy rate in the Twin Cities Office Market even higher.
The Mpls-St Paul office market, consisting of 130 msf of space in seven counties across the metro saw (341,300) sf negative absorption for Q3 2022 and shows an overall vacancy rate of 15.9% for all properties. This quarter shows (198,600) sf of direct negative absorption while subleases accounted for (145,000) sf negative absorption. Multi-tenant only properties posted 20.8% vacancy with (221,800) sf negative absorption during Q3 2022 of which (79,000) sf negative absorption was for direct space and (145,000) sf negative absorption was for subleases. During Q3 2022 there were 15 construction projects throughout the market totaling just shy of 1.0 msf. Ten properties have been delivered YTD with 810,000 sf.
