REOC releases 2Q 2011 office market update

Source: REOC San Antonio

After six consecutive quarters of small but steady gains toward recovery, the San Antonio office market took a huge hit in the second quarter.  The spike in vacancy may be disheartening but not surprising.  Looming shadow space – leased but vacant – created a formidable challenge for a market that has averaged less than a half million square feet of annual positive absorption over the past five years. 

One quarter’s poor performance cannot be interpreted as a reversal of the market’s positive trend, but it does hint to a protracted recovery period, especially in light of the large blocks of space anticipated to return to vacancy in 2012 upon completion of a handful of high-profile build-to-suit projects.
