Net absorption in San Antonio Office market up substantially year-over-year.

Market Highlights

VACANCY CONTINUES TO RISE Overall vacancy in the San Antonio office market is at 10.7%, up from 10.4% in October 2020. Net absorption (move-ins minus move-outs) is at positive 349,000 sq. ft., up from 32,000 sq. ft. at this time last year. There have been eight properties totaling 669,000 sq. ft. delivered so far in 2021, with 211,000 sq. ft. of available space. The amount of square feet delivered to the San Antonio office market has been equal to or outpaced net absorption—representing demand for office space—for the third consecutive period since 2019.

There is 803,000 sq. ft. of proposed projects that have been announced, although they have not broken ground yet. The amount of construction underway and in the pipeline has been on average about 1.3 million sq. ft. over the past decade.
