BOCA RATON, FL-Conditions are continuing to improve in the city’s office submarket, as direct vacancy rates and sublease space are still on the decline, according to a June update on the Palm Beach County office market by CB Richard Ellis.The vacancy and sublease results are expected to translate into higher average asking rental rates in the months ahead, the report states. Nearby in West Palm, a larger proportion of tenants are renewing their leases at existing sites, although leasing activity overall is flat, with the submarket seeing marginal absorption, the report adds.Higher vacancy rates are contributing to more tenant incentives, including reductions in rent and higher improvement allowances, in North Palm Beach.

Although deal sizes have been relatively small, this small submarket has had “good tenant activity,” the report states.
