The beginning of 2023 saw a steady flow of activity in the Downtown office market, and though Q1 2023 resulted in net negative absorption of approximately 100,000 square feet, confidence in the market remains high.

  • Phase 1 of the City of Calgary’s Downtown Development Incentive Program which has focused on office to residential conversions has now allocated the majority of that initial funding and is looking onwards to phase 2 of the program.
  • To date, there have been five downtown office buildings comprising ~788,000 square feet that have been announced and removed from inventory, with another six buildings comprising ~580,000 square feet approved and soon to be announced.
  • With the leasing success that has followed several major building upgrades over the past several years, more landlords have also begun the process of investing in building improvements to increase their allure to prospective tenants.
  • Office occupancy levels remain strong in downtown Calgary sitting around 70% and can be seen through the significant increase in vehicle traffic and +15 pedestrian traffic in the core.
