Sublease space demand in Austin


According to CoStar Group, Inc. “Austin has seen the biggest decline in sublease space in the country since the beginning of the year.” Sublease space in Austin is down about 32% to 2.7 million square feet. San Francisco, by comparison a much larger market, is down only about 12% to 9.5 million square feet. These data suggest continuing strong demand for commercial space in Austin.

Through September, 150 companies relocating or expanding in Austin “pledge to create more than 20,000 [20,840] jobs during the first nine months of 2021, nearing the 2020 record [22,114] for pledged jobs numbers.” Tesla alone will add 5,000 jobs at “its $1.1 billion gigafactory in Austin later this year.” Big job additions are especially happening in Austin suburbs, “where local governments are more likely to provide subsidies.”
