Fueled by Tableau’s 139K at Fremont LU Center and Dropbox’s 121K SF at 2+U, the Downtown Seattle market has now blown past the 3.5M SF of total sublease space available up to 3.69M SF. Available sublease space has grown month over month in every submarket with the exception of Pioneer Sq/Waterfront, which saw 19K SF of absorption. Significant growth has continued in the CBD (14%), attributed in large part to the aforementioned Dropbox space, but also by significant space at the Decatur Building (56K SF), 5th & Pine (13K SF), and 1700 7th (12K SF). Belltown (222K SF, 41%), Lake Union (31K SF, 17%), and Ballard (131K SF, 458%) all saw significant upward surges, though it’s important to note their smaller stature can be skewed heavily by one large space (ex: Ballard/U Dist this month).
