Commercial Real Estate in Palm Beach County is improving


Palm Beach County has nearly 23.2 million square feet of office space. About 23 percent of that office space — or 5.4 million square feet — is vacant.  There’s room for growth, but the market’s headed in the right direction

Multiple large deals toward the end of last year lowered vacancy rates and boosted absorption. In the fourth quarter, 50,000 square feet was leased at the Esperante Corporate Center, which changed hands in a $71 million sale during that period. That deal was the first sale in the central business district since CityPlace Tower traded in 2011.

The last three months of 2103 saw other major leases, including Frisco, Texas-based Conifer Revenue Cycle Solutions LLC’s contract for 97,762 square feet at Boca Corporate Center and Campus.
