Denver office market report

Q1 2022

The Denver office market experienced an uptick in tour activity to start the year. Even though vacancy remains high and net absorption attempts to stabilize from eight quarters in the red, asking rents continue to creep up. This indicates owners are holding base rents in lieu of other concessions such as free rent and tenant improvement allowances. There is a particular emphasis on move-in-ready space that allows for shorter commencement periods and flexible lease terms.
