A recent article in the National Post indicated that Vancouver office vacancy rates had risen to over ten per cent at 10.2% in the first quarter of 2010. Compared to the first quarter of 2009, this is up from 7.2% (or 3% increase). Most of the Vancouver office vacancy rate increase actually happened in the suburbs where an increasing number of office buildings are being developed, and not within the city core where vacancy rates remain steady. According to CB Richard Ellis, the downtown Vancouver office vacancy rate rose from six per cent (6%) from 4.2% during the same time period. However, the suburban Vancouver office vacancy rate has risen to an astonishing 14.7% from 10.7% during the same one year period. According to CB Richard Ellis, the Vancouver office vacancy rates will see a slow recovery during 2010, and they predict that the worst of the financial crisis is over.
