Q1 2017 Cite Partners Central Florida Office Market Report

Orlando Office – A Different Question of Sustainability

Sustainability is defined as ” the ability to be supported, upheld, or confirmed.” It is used today mostly in an ecological sense where it can mean “the quality of not being harmful to the environment or depleting natural resources, and thereby supporting long-term ecological balance.”

Sustainability in the Orlando Office Market is an important question – but not for the reason that you might think. The question that I ask is whether the successes that we’ve seen in the Office community through the last several years can be sustained. As the saying goes, the tide rises all boats – and that saying holds true for most of the submarkets in Orlando as virtually all markets saw an increase in productivity in 2016 (ie: vacancy decreases; rental rate increases; landlord sentiment is favorable; tenant incentives on the decline, etc.).

Q4 2016 Cite Partners Central Florida Industrial Market Report


2016 ended on a very strong note, which is usually a great sign for the upcoming year. We saw the third straight year of over three million square feet of positive absorption, vacancy continue to drop, and new construction remains very disciplined. Tenant demand continues to be consistent and many existing companies are looking for new space to expand. There is over $15 billion worth of capital investment taking place in Orlando right now between Ultimate I-4, expansion at OIA, Wekiva Parkway, theme park expansions, and many more projects.

Q4 2016 Cite Partners Central Florida Office Market Report

2016..what a year!! A lot happened around us in Central Florida; in the State of Florida; in the United States; heck, in the world. The office market, overall, had a very successful year. Vacancies continued to dwindle while rental rates increased. Office-user-sales continued to take a prominent position in the market as interest rates promoted cheap cost of funds for buyers. Investment sales in the area were brisk as more national, institutional buyers found their way into Orlando and other “secondary” markets like it. Positive signs are all around..
