Two years to three months. This is that the lead time TAMI [technology, advertising, marketing and information] tenants are working with when they are in-market, looking for office space. Given this, Landlords needs to offer spec suites for immediate occupancy to accommodate the market opportunity.
Here’s a remark from Colliers International Executive Vice President Kristin Blount in Bismpw, on the velocity of current real-estate transactions:
“Tenants used to be in the market way far in advance of a lease expiration or their renewal notice time period,” [Colliers International Executive Vice President Kristin Blount] said. “Because their business is changing more rapidly than before and the newer kind of TAMI [technology, advertising, marketing and information] tenants make up a lot of growth, the speed to market and need to move quickly is something that is really important to them.”
