At the beginning of 2012, it was predicted that we would continue to see a fairly flat market in the downtown and suburban office market and that has proven somewhat true throughout the first 7 months of this year. We are experiencing some movement from office tenants, large and small, that have previously been in Class B and C spaces as they look to improve their positioning by gravitating to some of the vacant Class A spaces. Several large Portland area office tenants relocated to newer redeveloped waterfront spaces within the past year; creating some rather large vacancies that are very attractive to office tenants who are moving into and benefitting from aggressive landlords looking to fill their buildings. Downtown office space is leasing typical in the $12-$14 per s/f modified gross range with some of the higher end buildings able to achieve numbers greater than that.
