North Fulton bounces back in the first quarter of 2020

Download Report

North Fulton bounced back as expected in the first quarter of the year with just over 163,000 square feet of positive absorption.

Key Takeaways

  • Q1's occupancy gains can be attributed to a multitude of tenants moving into between 10,0000-30,000 square feet across the submarket. Axis Capital was the largest occupancy this quarter; however, the insurance company downsized slightly from its previous North Fulton location.
  • Despite the positive absorption, the submarket saw its vacancy rate increase yet again. This comes as no surprise though given the deliveries of 10000 Avalon and 1 Edison which are expected to see occupancies take place in the coming quarters.
  • Thanks to new deliveries, the average rent in North Fulton is up 1.9% quarter-over-quarter; Class A rents are up 1.2%.
  • Fundamentals show North Fulton will continue to see steady growth in 2020; however, COVID-19's impact on the submarket is to be determined.
