You can access the full report <span style="text-decoration:underline;color:#0000ff;"><a href="https://user-169168.cld.bz/Q2-2017-MarketReport-WEB" target="_blank" rel="noopener">here</a></span>, and some highlights from the second quarter are listed below.</strong></em></p> <p><strong>The Office Market</strong></p> <p>Net absorption was slightly positive in Greater Boston’s office market during the second quarter. While fundamentals are generally positive, conditions are clearly shifting in the economy and the office market. Build-to-suit activity and owner-user sales drove a majority of the positive absorption in the suburbs, but metrowide vacancies remained flat compared to last quarter at 11.3%. While absorption may increase during the second half of this year, on the whole, relocations are resulting in decreased office footprints. Looking beyond 2017, demand growth will likely fail to reach levels Greater Boston has seen in recent years.</p> <p>Landlords continue to push lease rates throughout the metro. However, rents are beginning to level off in some segments of the marketplace. Metrowide average asking rents ended the second quarter at $33.60 per square foot, which is only slightly above first-quarter rents. Class A rents surpassed $41 per square foot at the metro level, with both the Downtown and Cambridge markets averaging more than $60 per square foot. In addition, the lack of vacancy in certain areas, like Fenway/Kenmore and Cambridge’s Class B market, have led to very few rent observations. Any movement in space fundamentals can impact the stats in these ultra-tight office markets.</p> <p><strong>The Industrial Market</strong></p> <p>The Greater Boston industrial market absorbed more than 300,000 square feet of space in the second quarter of 2017. Vacancies are sub-8%; reaching levels not seen in more than 15 years. Demand drivers remain vast and varied. E-commerce, housing and building-related firms, drug manufacturing, logistics, high-tech manufacturing, breweries and medical marijuana facilities are all bolstering industrial demand in the marketplace.</p> <p>Rents have risen 15% since the end of 2014, ending the second quarter at $8.64 per square foot. While modern, quality industrial space continues to garner a premium, in some instances location (particularly infill areas) is driving lease rates. Expect conditions to remain positive in the near term. Steady leasing activity, coupled with more subdued construction, will keep market fundamentals moving in the right direction going forward.</p><br /> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/godelicious/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1433/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/delicious/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1433/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gofacebook/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1433/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/facebook/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1433/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gotwitter/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1433/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/twitter/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1433/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gostumble/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1433/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/stumble/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1433/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/godigg/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1433/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/digg/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1433/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/goreddit/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1433/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/reddit/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1433/" /></a> <img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=naihunnemanblog.com&#038;blog=49244689&#038;post=1433&#038;subd=naihunnemanblog&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" /> https://naihunnemanblog.com/2017/08/01/new-from-nai-hunnemans-research-department-q2-metro-boston-market-report/feed/ 0 naihunneman FullReport-Q2 2017-08-01 17:15 +00:00 2017-08-01 12:15 -05:00 http://naihunnemanblog.com/?p=1427 https://naihunnemanblog.com/2017/07/21/weekly-cre-blog-roundup-12/ Company News Research Weekly CRE Blog Roundup Below represents recent blog posts of interest from around the commercial real estate universe curated by the NAI Hunneman Research Department.

They also support important patient services that would otherwise not be funded.</p> <p>For Minnerly, this years’ ride marks her 12<sup>th</sup> time participating in the Prouty to support a cause that is near and dear to her heart. The last three rides have been especially important to her as she done the ride in honor of her best friend Sarah who fought and sadly lost a courageous battle with Stage 4 Lung Cancer in April of 2015.</p> <p><img data-attachment-id="1409" data-permalink="https://naihunnemanblog.com/2017/06/28/hunneman-cares-nai-hunneman-executive-pedals-to-support-cancer-research-in-memory-of-friend/cathy-bike-ride-1/" data-orig-file="https://naihunnemanblog.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/cathy-bike-ride-1.jpg?w=558&#038;h=390" data-orig-size="3264,2448" data-comments-opened="1" data-image-meta="{&quot;aperture&quot;:&quot;2.2&quot;,&quot;credit&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;camera&quot;:&quot;iPhone 6&quot;,&quot;caption&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;created_timestamp&quot;:&quot;1468051869&quot;,&quot;copyright&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;focal_length&quot;:&quot;4.15&quot;,&quot;iso&quot;:&quot;32&quot;,&quot;shutter_speed&quot;:&quot;0.0019455252918288&quot;,&quot;title&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;orientation&quot;:&quot;1&quot;}" data-image-title="Cathy bike ride 1" data-image-description="" data-medium-file="https://naihunnemanblog.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/cathy-bike-ride-1.jpg?w=558&#038;h=390?w=300" data-large-file="https://naihunnemanblog.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/cathy-bike-ride-1.jpg?w=558&#038;h=390?w=676" class=" wp-image-1409 aligncenter" src="https://naihunnemanblog.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/cathy-bike-ride-1.jpg?w=558&#038;h=390" alt="Cathy bike ride 1" width="558" height="390" /></p> <p>“Sarah was a strong person and an even stronger fighter,” said Minnerly. “It is my honor to call her my best friend and it is in her honor and memory of our friendship that I will complete my 12th Prouty Ride. I will ride harder, stronger, and am even more determined this year to fundraise to fight this horrible disease.”</p> <p>The Norris Cotton Cancer Center has raised over $23 Million through the Prouty and continues its endeavor to find cures.

Biogen’s vacant sublease at 105 Broadway, Whole Foods’ relocation to Marlborough and the demolition of 145 Broadway led to higher vacancies in Cambridge. In the suburbs, the delivery of SharkNinja’s new headquarters in Needham and two large owner-user sales helped the office market post more than 400,000 square feet of demand. Despite a softening in fundamentals asking rents continued to increase; surpassing $33/SF metrowide in the second quarter.</li> <li>Given how tight Greater Boston’s lab market has been, any movement in either direction can impact fundamentals. This quarter, positive absorption in East Cambridge was driven by the delivery of the fully-occupied 50-60 Binney Street. Takeda’s now vacant space at 26 Landsdowne Street and former BIND Therapeutics space at 325 Vassar contributed to negative absorption in Mid Cambridge. In terms of construction Alexandria broke ground on 399 Binney Street and King Street Properties is moving forward with a speculative lab building at 828 Winter Street in Waltham.</li> <li style="text-align:left;">Overall demand remained positive in Greater Boston’s industrial market, with build-to-suit construction and owner-user sales bolstering absorption. That said, modest speculative construction and negative absorption in the north markets kept vacancies elevated compared to last quarter. In one of the largest deals of the quarter, 47 Brand purchased the 465,000-square-foot 140 Laurel Street in Bridgewater and plans to occupy the space, which has been vacant since 2009. Asking rents are nearing $9/SF metrowide, with Flex/R&amp;D space within the Route 128 belt garnering top dollar from tenants.</li> </ol> <p><a href="http://www.naihunneman.com/Portals/46/docs/mr/Q2-2017-MarketRECAP-WEB.pdf">Click here to access Market Recap.</a></p><br /> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/godelicious/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1355/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/delicious/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1355/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gofacebook/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1355/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/facebook/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1355/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gotwitter/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1355/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/twitter/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1355/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gostumble/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1355/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/stumble/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1355/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/godigg/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1355/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/digg/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1355/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/goreddit/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1355/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/reddit/naihunnemanblog.wordpress.com/1355/" /></a> <img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=naihunnemanblog.com&#038;blog=49244689&#038;post=1355&#038;subd=naihunnemanblog&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" /> https://naihunnemanblog.com/2017/06/27/nai-hunneman-q2-market-recap-now-available/feed/ 0 lberthelette MarketRECap-Q2 2017-06-27 18:24 +00:00 2017-06-27 13:24 -05:00 http://naihunnemanblog.com/?p=1337 https://naihunnemanblog.com/2017/06/26/weekly-cre-blog-roundup-9/ Company News Research Weekly CRE Blog Roundup Below represents recent blog posts of interest from around the commercial real estate universe curated by the NAI Hunneman Research Department.

Leading real estate forecasting and analytics firm; <a href="http://www.costar.com/products/costar-portfolio-strategy">CoStar Portfolio Strategy</a>, is predicting a recession will occur within the next three years. However, the impending downturn should be much milder than the Great Recession of 2009.</li> <li>Several economic indicators remain positive. Corporate profits have been positive in the last three quarters, the unemployment rate is at a 17-year low and real wage growth (accounting for inflation) is as good as it was in the previous two cycles.</li> <li>CRE prices are bobbling at new peaks. While prices are not rising, they aren’t necessarily falling either. Locally, the tide is going out very slowly in Boston so values should remain pretty solid.</li> </ol> <p><img data-attachment-id="1291" data-permalink="https://naihunnemanblog.com/2017/06/08/a-breakdown-of-naiops-mid-year-market-roundup/microscope/" data-orig-file="https://naihunnemanblog.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/cambridgelab-market.jpg?w=596&#038;h=371" data-orig-size="4197,2801" data-comments-opened="1" data-image-meta="{&quot;aperture&quot;:&quot;3&quot;,&quot;credit&quot;:&quot;Getty Images&quot;,&quot;camera&quot;:&quot;NIKON D600&quot;,&quot;caption&quot;:&quot;Scientist placing a slide beneath an optical microscope&quot;,&quot;created_timestamp&quot;:&quot;1437135020&quot;,&quot;copyright&quot;:&quot;nicolas_&quot;,&quot;focal_length&quot;:&quot;60&quot;,&quot;iso&quot;:&quot;100&quot;,&quot;shutter_speed&quot;:&quot;0.2&quot;,&quot;title&quot;:&quot;Microscope&quot;,&quot;orientation&quot;:&quot;1&quot;}" data-image-title="Microscope" data-image-description="" data-medium-file="https://naihunnemanblog.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/cambridgelab-market.jpg?w=596&#038;h=371?w=300" data-large-file="https://naihunnemanblog.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/cambridgelab-market.jpg?w=596&#038;h=371?w=676" class=" wp-image-1291 aligncenter" src="https://naihunnemanblog.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/cambridgelab-market.jpg?w=596&#038;h=371" alt="Microscope" width="596" height="371" /></p> <p><strong>Cambridge/Lab Market – </strong><a href="http://www.colliers.com/evan.gallagher?mkt=/us/massachusetts/boston"><strong>Evan Gallagher</strong></a></p> <ol> <li>Biotech has seen a renaissance and Cambridge is the new Florence.
