HOUSTON—Office leasing spiked in the last quarter of 2017 and that activity doesn’t show any signs of waning if the first two months are any indication. Quarterly leasing activity totaled 3.6 million square feet, the highest quarterly amount since the third quarter of 2016. Activity was driven by a continued flight to quality, aggressiveness by non-energy tenants and some relocations from spaces affected by Hurricane Harvey, according to the fourth quarter 2017 office market report by Savills Studley.
