SAN FRANCISCO—At the end of the third quarter, the overall vacancy rate dropped 40 basis points to 2.8% and overall availability dropped 70 basis points to 7.8%, while demand of 7.6 million square feet outpaced supply. Year-to-date leasing activity remained constrained, down 26.3% compared with the same period last year, according to a third-quarter report by Newmark Knight Frank. Despite the tight market, more than 1 million square feet was absorbed during the quarter, with more than half resulting from Dropbox’s move into 656,482 square feet at 1800 Owens St.
