Pittsburgh-area law firms looking for Trophy space are likely to find their options limited, as this class of space remains at near-full occupancy levels market-wide.

Overall, the Pittsburgh market has the second-lowest vacancy rate in the U.S. at a mere 6.5 percent.



Though several large-scale projects have been proposed in the CBD, only one (Tower Two-Sixty) is currently under construction, limiting options for potential tenants.

If your firm is looking for large blocks of space you might consider buildings previously leased by tenants who underwent rightsizing in the last 18 months. The availability of Class B space is also giving tenants leverage, although we expect the market to shift back to neutral status after 2015.

Your JLL Pittsburgh law firm team is here to help you navigate this complicated market.

  • Attract and retain attorneys, and encourage collaboration among them
  • Grow your business without taking on unnecessary overhead
  • Improve space efficiency and reduce operating costs
  • Plan strategically for mergers or acquisitions
