The data center market is growing rapidly, with several markets reporting an increase in leasing activity. In Southern California, data center leasing activity was up 23% in 2018, according to research from CBRE; however, the significant increase still trailing behind surrounding markets, like Phoenix and Las Vegas, which are leading in data center activity. In 2018, Los Angeles had 10.3 megawatts of absorption, but 10.7 megawatts of new capacity came to market, increasing the vacancy rate by 140 basis points to 15.2%. Still, Southern California’s data center market is healthy.
