Downtown Calgary’s commercial real estate market is swinging in favour of tenants as more office space gets freed up in the white-collar heart of the oilpatch. Weak oil prices have caused companies to cut their head counts in recent months, pushing vacancy rates into the double-digits.
In the suburban office market for quarter three, Barclay Street Real Estate highlights that overall vacancy rates have come down, decreasing from 12.67% in Q2 to 11.08%. There has been a tightening of all four quadrants within Calgary with the exception of the NW which saw the only increase in vacancy.
