The effects of the coronavirus outbreak on the tri-county area commercial market remain unclear. Prior to the coronavirus outbreak, the tri-county area had strong economic momentum, and the current report largely reflects the environment before the pandemic. It is too early to provide a quantitative assessment or forecast of the ultimate market impact of COVID-19. As with previous reports, our analysis focuses on the market activity reflected in current quarterly statistics. The overnight halt to the tourism industry will likely have repercussions for the local economy. In a year of evident political and economic uncertainty, we expect to see additional tempering in metrics – including asking rent growth and construction starts – as companies look for additional signals of where their businesses are headed this year.
