Long Island office market reports

Q3 2021

This dashboard is best viewed in a wider browser window.

Office market conditions are poised to remain uncertain, as there is likely to be a reluctance by tenants to make new space acquisition commitments when workplace strategies are largely undetermined. There is some hope, however, that some New York City-based office occupiers could investigate opening an outpost in surrounding suburban markets like Long Island.


Economic Conditions

Reopening efforts and higher vaccination rates have allowed the Long Island unemployment rate to rebound from a post-COVID high of 17.5% to 5.2% as of July 2021.


Recovery Rate

The share of the total Long Island population that is fully vaccinated is 65.6%, which is higher than the national average and may serve as a leading indicator for greater return-to-work efforts.


Office Demand

Significant uncertainty remains as office occupiers continue to navigate their long-term workplace strategies, resulting in post-COVID annualized leasing activity that is -38.5% vs. the preceding 20-year average.


Office Supply

Direct and sublease vacancy rates have dipped slightly from their recent historical highs, totaling 9.9% as of Q3 2021.


Pricing Trends

Asking rents have escalated by 4.1% year-to-date, which reflects the higher-quality composition of availabilities but does not reflect the more generous concessions packages that are being offered to incentivize tenant commitments.


Capital Markets

Long Island office transaction volume has totaled $486M since 2020, -43.2% compared with the prior five-year average on an annualized basis.
