Market Commentary:
“Downtown Vancouver has seen net rent increase by over $5 per rentable square foot during the last 2 quarters, as the vacancy rate continues to diminish, currently standing at sub 2%. Although there are several redevelopment projects in the works, they are either almost entirely slated for completion well after 2020, already preleased, or both. As a result, we anticipate an even more tenant challenged market over the next 24 months.”
