With demand running ahead of rising construction completion totals throughout the recent period, the vacancy rate in the Atlanta warehouse/ distribution market has been declining decisively since 2010, when it peaked at fully 17.3%. By the end of 2017, the rate had fallen to 10.2%, up 20 basis points for the period but down 110 for the year—following another 110-basis-points loss in 2016. At $4.08 psf and $3.65 psf, fourth quarter asking and effective average rates for warehouse/distribution space were up fully 4.6% and 5.2% for the year, very high rates of increase for this property category by national norms and well above the also-high growth rates of 3.7% and 4.2% reported for 2016. Gains for the fourth quarter alone were 1.5% and 1.7%, the year’s strongest. VIEW INDUSTRIAL LISTINGS >
Reflecting its large economy and huge population base, metro Atlanta played host to 145.3 million square feet of existing general purpose, multi-tenant office inventory as of the fourth quarter of 2017. Vacancy rose sharply during the recession and its aftermath. The descent thereafter has been much more gradual, flattening out in 2017 with the arrival of a large volume of new space. From its 2010 peak at about 21.0%, the rate had slipped to 18.1% by the end of 2016. A year later, it had added 10 basis points, closing 2017 at 18.2% in the wake of a notably slack performance. At $24.84 psf and $19.69 psf, average asking and effective rates for the fourth quarter of 2017 represented gains of 3.4% for both averages for the year. Gains for the latest quarter alone ran at 0.9% each. VIEW OFFICE LISTINGS >
Recession-related negative net absorption drove the vacancy rate in the Atlanta community-neighborhood shopping center market steadily upward through 2011, when it peaked at 14.4%. With development sharply curtailed in the aftermath and with demand gradually recovering, the rate embarked subsequently upon a slow descent, reaching a cyclical low of 11.1% at the end of 2016. The modest excess of new supply over net absorption that followed in 2017 lifted the rate to 11.3% by the end of the year. Included was the fourth quarterÂ’s 10-basis-points rise. Rates of rent growth in the community-neighborhood center market increased in each of 2015 and 2016 but declined again in 2017. At $18.67 psf and $16.37 psf, respective fourth quarter average asking and effective rates were up 1.7% and 1.9% for the year following increases of 2.9% and 3.1% in 2016. Gains for the latest quarter alone were just 0.1% for both rates. VIEW RETAIL LISTINGS >
