Development of office, residential and public spaces continues Downtown.
The Downtown Office Story is an in-depth proprietary longitudinal analysis of the competitive Downtown office market, based on the collection and analysis of primary data from our most competitive buildings. The survey and analysis are based on consistent methodology spanning over three decades. Buildings in the survey have proven the ability to compete for tenants in Dontown’s prime Class A office buildings. For 36 years the results have assisted the various real estate stakeholders (owners, leasing agents, and potential investors) in making data-driven and informed marketing and investment decisions. This survey supplements and does not replace other traditional market surveys: broker, owner, or third-party reports.
Over the past two decades, more than $9 billion in public and private investments have been made towards achieving Downtown’s vision of a creative and vibrant place to live, work and play.
