The office market expanded by a total of 7,576,420 square feet over this time. The Tempe submarket led all submarkets with 690,000 square feet of occupancy gains for the year and remains the epicenter for much of the market's sustained growth. Tenants remain active and continue to relocate, expand and payroll; robust demand is expected to carry on into 2018. Looking ahead, six transactions greater than 100,000 square feet, are expected to take occupancy of close to 1.0 million square feet in the first quarter of 2018, highlighted by Centene (236,000 square feet) and Union Bank (170,000 square feet) moving into two new buildings in Tempe. Despite the continued growth of the inventory base, overall vacancy dropped to its lowest rate since 2008 to 18.9%, a 30-basis-point improvement quarter-over-quarter and a 90-basis-point improvement year-over-year. The Class A market remained the tightest with a 17.9% overall vacancy, while Class B vacancy tallied 20.1% at the end of 2017.
