According to the reports from the Equity Office, the commercial property market at Cambridge presently has relatively low level of vacancy rates of around 11% and the vacancy rates during the past year have come down by 350 basis points.

Andrew Maher, Equity Office’s Managing Director of Leasing in Boston, stated that the commercial real estate markets in MetroWest and Cambridge are bouncing back due to the revival of technology companies and the present trend of changing office spaces into the laboratory and life science spaces. He added that the trend has left only limited number of large blocks to accommodate the growing number of tenants.
