Office
Metro AustinÂ’s general purpose, multi-tenant office market had a strong start to 2019, according to Reis data, with 214,000 square feet of net absorption balanced by 225,000 square feet of new supply in the first quarter. The vacancy rate edged down 10 basis points to 13.2%, a low rate for this fast-growth market, where developers are building in anticipation of future demand. Rent gains imply a balanced market.
