San Francisco Peninsula office market reports

Q1 2022: Tech giants continue to set trends and lead the way in Bay Area real estate. The official return to work is upon us as we exit the 1st quarter of 2022.

We entered 2022 with great uncertainty around the state of the office market with unprecedented surges in Covid-19 cases due to the Omicron Variant. But, as we exit the first quarter, cases have decreased precipitously, making way for tech giants like Meta to announce their returns to in-person work. These announcement will likely act as a jumpstart to a lot of real estate decisions of smaller companies throughout the Peninsula and Bay Area.
