We expect investment activity to increase moving into 2016 as major building projects come to market over the next three to six months in East Bay, with stable occupancy numbers creating solid growth opportunities for investors. Q1 alone saw more than $224 million in sales activity across the area for spaces greater than 10,000 square feet.

Landlords remain optimistic and plan to continue to push rental rates higher given strong demand and large user activity market wide. Current projections indicate the CBD is seeing especially tight pressure, with active requirements far outpacing available space (as of Q1).
