Two of D.C.'s largest tenant groups are the legal and nonprofit sectors. They are what our city is known for, and our office market is built upon. These tenants' decisions impact the city's commercial real estate market more than any other industry.
While Southeast and Southwest markets have gained popularity in recent years, major leases in the central business district are bringing the East End back into discussion. Which tenants enjoyed their stay outside of the CBD, and what factors are bringing some back?
We're also seeing tenants using real estate to re-invent themselves. Using physical space as a tool to support their brand, mission and culture, tenants are utilizing office space to remain competitive employers to a rapidly changing workforce.
