  • Phil Ryan

The office market continued to face an ever-evolving series of headwinds during the second quarter, shifting from questions over return to office earlier in the year to the effects of the highest rate of inflation in decades.

  • Transaction volume was relatively flat over the quarter at 47.2 million square feet as tenants both large and small put expansion plans on hold amid macroeconomic uncertainty.
  • Flight to quality accelerated in the second quarter: since the onset of the pandemic, new supply has registered net occupancy growth of 86.8 million square feet.
  • 11.8 million square feet of new space was delivered in Q2, bringing year-to-date completions to 26.5 million square feet, on track to repeat 2021’s more than 50 million square feet of new space.
