Northern Virginia office space is most expensive to rent on Wilson Blvd in Rosslyn, according to a study.
Commercial real estate firm JLL found that rents on the street in Rosslyn average between $56 and $65 per square foot, and that those rents are increasing.
The study found that average rent increase is due to new high-end “trophy class” offices coming online, as well as the unobstructed views of Washington, D.Cand the Potomac RiverThose “trophy” offices include top amenities, good views of their surroundings and are connected to transit options like Metro and bus routes.
“The new trophy buildings not only deliver high-end modern office space, but will help transform Rosslyn from a sleepy 9-5 business district into a vibrant live-work-play neighborhood,” Michael Hartnett, senior research manager in JLL’s Northern Virginia office, said in a statement.
Across the region, average rents on office space remain high even as jurisdictions battle with a high vacancy rateArlington County’s office vacancy rate is just over 17 percent, even with the likes of Nestle moving to Rosslyn.
“Despite the U.Soffice market posting 81 million square feet of net absorption the past 24 months and posting rent growth of 8.2 percent, the Metro D.Cmarket has posted nearly 700,000 square feet of occupancy losses and a rent decline of 6.9 percent,” John Sikaitis, managing director of research at JLL, said in a statement“In this challenging market, there are an equal mix of winners and losers and on the demand side, these nuanced high-priced corridors at the intersection of Main and Main have attracted the most demand and been some of the more resilient segments of the market.”
