Tech Firms Influencing Downtown Market

In today’s economic landscape, the profile of potential office tenants is constantly changing. As a result, so too are the unique needs of these tenants.

One of the newest, and fastest growing segments in today’s market is that of the tech company.

David Phillips, of, expands on this topic in a recent article:

Nearly one quarter of all downtown office lease transactions for 2012 were for tech companies seeking a creative office environment, including high ceilings, daylight, open office space, and exposed mechanicals.

The sector is driving the next generation of office space design, according to a fourth-quarter office report by CBRE Inc., the city’s largest real estate brokerage, cited by the Portland Business Journal.”
