Cost of office space in selected major cities in U.S. 2017

Cost of office space in selected major cities in the United States in 2017 (in U.S. dollars per square foot)

Cost of office space in selected major cities in U.S. 2017 Washington DC was the most expensive major city for office space, among those being considered for Amazon’s second headquarters, in the United States in 2017. Tenants paid, on average, 595 U.S. dollars per square foot for office space in that city, compared with 550 U.S. dollars and 486 U.S. dollars per square foot in Boston and Austin respectively.  
Why is Washington DC so expensive?

The GDP of the Washington metro area has steadily risen since 2001, which indicates that the economy is growing. This is not surprising, because it is the capital of the United States and, consequently, its political epicenter. All three branches of government, nearly 200 foreign embassies and several international organizations - such as the IMF, the World Bank and the National Geographic Society - are located there, which also means that it’s the logical place for lobbying firms and many financial services companies to operate from.

Further growth expected in Washington DC

The future of the office real estate market in Washington DC looks promising, due to its political importance and strong economy. Office rents are forecast to grow by almost six percent by 2021, which is impressive given how high they already are. However, vacancy rates are also set to rise in the area, which means that more available office units will be unoccupied.
