Office Vacancy -- Sept. 2010                       

 Source:  CoStar*             
 Through 3rd quarter 2010  
           
 *This is a new graph.  Unlike the Grubb & Ellis data, which includes all business property available for lease (even if it is currently occupied but available because the current occupant has not vacated the property), CoStar data only includes currently vacant property.  Also, unlike Grubb and Ellis, it includes small office buildings of less than 20,000 square feet, owner-occupied buildings, and medical buildings.  The addition of these categories of office space more than doubles the measured capacity of the office market in Alexandria.  We believe the Co Star data is a better representation of the office market than the Grubb & Ellis series.  CoStar data is what the AEDP uses to portray office market conditions in Alexandria.
