"We're finding that the central business district markets arefor the most part remaining strong," Maria Sicola, senior managingdirector of research analytics for C&W, tells GlobeSt.com. "Itis the sublease space that has been put on the market since thefourth quarter of last year that is having the most profound effecton increasing vacancy rates and subsequently driving down rentalrates.

"We do believe, however, that the bulk of the sublease space hasbeen returned to the market and that construction levels are morein line with demand than they were in previous real estateslowdowns," continues Sicola, who is also a member of GlobeSt.com'sThink Tank.

We willcontinue to monitor the markets that are comprised significantly oftech firms and the submarkets as well."
