A new analysis finds that more employers are seeking Akron for office space.
The Cleveland-based research firm JLL found the city’s office vacancy rate is expected to decrease in 2019. A report shows that vacancy is sitting at just over 16 percent compared to the nationwide rate of 11 percent.
JLL’s Research Head Andrew Batson says the city is building momentum and new city projects like the Bowery Development are helping increase demand.
He also says millennials are a factor.
