Atlanta Office & Industrial Market Reviews: Q2 2018

SECOND QUARTER, 2018

Atlanta Office Market

The Atlanta office market is in good shape, as rent growth and vacancy continue to outperform historical averages. These fundamental markers are due to strong job growth in office-using employment and a relative lack of new supply. Further, most of the new office this cycle has been build to suit, with State Farm, Cox Communications, and NCR leading the way.

Atlanta Industrial Market

The Atlanta industrial market continues to surge, benefiting from its role as a national distribution hub and from the rapid growth in the metro itself. Logistics space dominates the market, accounting for nearly 80% of all supply.

By removing that low-functioning supply in the core, and adding build-to-suit facilities in the industrial nodes, overall vacancy has steadily fallen throughout the cycle, reaching a cyclical trough in the beginning of 2018.
