Vancouver Industrial Market Report Q4 2022

The shortage of large-bay space remains the headline of the Greater Vancouver Area’s Industrial market in Q4. Average asking net rates have increased to $21.10 per square foot, and despite a 46% increase in total vacant space from the previous quarter, there is still very strong tenant demand. • Vacant and available square feet have both risen quarter-over-quarter, but those increases have had no substantial impact on the current market, with the vacancy rate remaining at 0.2%. • Leasing options remain limited despite an additional 648,431 square feet of available space hitting the market in Q4, with half of the listed spaces being 5,000 square feet or smaller. • Over 1.1 million square feet of new supply was delivered in the final quarter of 2022, but nearly all of the new space was pre-leased before the buildings reached completion, resulting in a net absorption of 928,265 square feet.

Vancouver Office Market Report Q4 2022

Throughout 2022, the Greater Vancouver Area office market continued to see positive absorption and a very stable vacancy rate, remaining unchanged at 5.9% in Q4, while the weighted average asking net rent increased by 21 cents (0.6%) to $34.25 per square foot in Q4.​ Downtown received a significant influx of sublease space in Q4, around 460,000 square feet, resulting in an increase in the total vacancy rate from 7.0% in Q3 to 8.4% in Q4, as well as the total available space also increased by 22% quarter-over-quarter in Q4, resulting in a 10.7% of availability rate in the Downtown area.​ As a consequence of the influx of sublease space in the office market, the rate of inducements has been improved by many landlords., such as offering rent-free periods and paying for leasehold improvements, to attract potential tenants and incentivize existing tenants into renting their headlease space and protect the value of their properties.​ Vancouver is in the midst of an office construction boom, having completed 1.4 million square feet of new space in 2022, with further 6.1 million square feet actively under construction across the entire GVA.
