research article

Calgary’s Downtown Office Market began to feel the fallout of the global pandemic in the second quarter. However, this fallout has been slightly more moderate than initially expected to date, with a quarter over quarter contraction in occupancy of only ~150,000 SF (26.95%).

  • Despite negative absorption overall this quarter, there have been no COVID-related discounts to posted rates as of the end of June. 
  • Both landlords and occupiers continue to evolve their businesses to adhere to provincial and federal health guidelines to ensure the health and safety of both employees and tenants. 
  • Downtown office has begun to show signs of a return to some kind of new normal as tenants begin to execute their return to work strategies.
