chi-merchandise-mart-01-2 (2) Chicago’s Merchandise Mart has become one of the most notable tech hubs in the US, and has helped fuel the sector’s organic growth.

CHICAGO—Technology has fueled office markets across the US for several years, and that growth has benefited both long-established tech markets like New York and newcomers such as Detroit. And according to CBRE’s new Tech-30 report, which measures the tech industry’s impact on office rents in 30 leading tech markets, companies based in the top four tech markets—the San Francisco Bay Area, Seattle, Boston and New York—have started expanding into new markets, creating more demand for office space and driving rent growth.
