Vacancy rate shrinks in Hamilton’s office segment

The growing number of jobs remained crucial in lowering the office vacancy rate in downtown Hamilton, according to a report from the city council’s general issues committee.

The vacancy rate of the office segment in downtown Hamilton was 11.9% last year, the lowest in the last eight years. This rate goes down to 7% if office towers were excluded.

CBC News reported that the decline in the office vacancy rate coincided with the 0.5% increase in jobs in the city over the past year.

“The trends are continuing, and for the last decade, we have been maybe not celebrating enough the revitalization of downtown,” said Jason Farr, Ward 2 councillor.

The committee report also found that the city is slowly adopting the co-working trend, with employers allowing work-from-home setups.
