3rd Quarter Office Market Report Update for Greater Reading

Suburban overview

The greater Reading suburban office market ended the second quarter of 2015 with a vacancy rate for Class A, or highest quality, office buildings at 10.93 percent, which includes existing and proposed sites. The vacancy rate for only existing Class A office buildings is 4.57 percent.

This is a decrease in vacancy rates from the end of first quarter this year and a decrease from the same period in 2014, which was at 13.55 percent. The average rental rates      remained unchanged at $17.50 to $22.50 per square foot modified gross (in which the tenant pays the base rent and the landlord covers all costs relating to property + operations), which is a decrease in the rates from the same period of 2014.

The Class B suburban office market ended the first quarter with a vacancy rate of 18.40 percent for existing and proposed sites. The vacancy rate for only existing Class B  Office buildings is 16.19 percent. This is a slight increase in vacancy rates from the end of the first quarter 2015, and it is a decrease from the same period in 2014. The average  rental rates remained unchanged at $12.50 to $15.50 per square foot modified gross from the end of the first quarter 2015 to the end of the second quarter of 2015. That is a  larger decrease from the same period in 2014, when average rental rates were $12.50 to $17.50 per square foot.

The Class C suburban office market ended the second quarter of 2015 with a vacancy rate of 13.97 percent, which is a slight decrease from the same period in 2014 and the  previous quarter.

The outlook for the office market sector going into the third quarter of 2015 is very optimistic, because of the high level of continued interest in the marketplace. Various deals that are finalized were completed in the beginning of the third quarter, including an 18,000-square-foot lease on Berkshire Boulevard, which could help third quarter numbers.

The opinions in the next two paragraphs are from the first quarter of 2015 and remain unchanged:

Cap rates for investment-grade office buildings remain low because of attractive financing. The most important variables are length of leases, credit of tenant(s), type of lease and type of asset (such as single tenant, multi-tenant, medical or back office).Overall activity continues to come from within the local marketplace. The majority of the transactions taking place are companies that already call greater Reading home.

However, most of these deals have resulted in larger footprints and longer commitments.

 

Downtown overview

The greater Reading downtown office market ended the second quarter of 2015 with a vacancy rate for Class A office buildings at 22.63 percent. It was a slight decrease in rates from the end of the first quarter of 2015. The average rental rates remained unchanged from the first quarter of 2015 through the second quarter of 2015 at $11 per square foot modified gross to $14.50 per square foot modified gross.

The reason for the slight decrease in vacancy rates is because of the new location of a 11,000-square-foot tenant at 501 Washington St. and expansion of various tenants throughout the marketplace. The Class A market noticed a benefit of the expansion of the large lease completed in the first quarter of 2015. However, Class B space is feeling the effect into the second quarter of 2015 because of the large vacancy that was created by the move.

The Class B downtown office market ended the second quarter of 2015 with a vacancy rate of 23.10 percent. This was an increase in vacancy rates from the end of first quarter 2015, and it was a smaller increase from the same period in 2014. The average rental rates remained unchanged at $7.50 per square foot modified gross at the end of the second quarter to $11 per square foot modified gross. This is similar to the rates from the same period in 2014. Overall vacancy rates for Class C buildings remained unchanged at 23.62 percent.

Equipment dealers relocating to new facility near Leesport

Two Berks County industrial equipment dealers, owned by the same company, will join forces and move together this fall into a new 68,000-square-foot building along Route 61 near Leesport in Ontelaunee Township.

Reading Tractor & Equipment of Leesport and Lift Inc. of Bernville are expected to relocate in September, once construction wraps on the large facility being built just a block from Reading Tractor & Equipment’s existing Cherry Street digs.

“Lift Inc. acquired us in June 2012, and we are making a new home for their Crown and Toyota forklifts and our Kubota and Bobcat equipment,” said sales manager Gabe Tulli at Reading Tractor & Equipment, acknowledging that thousands of vehicles a day pass by the Pottsville Pike site.

Lift Inc. also is looking to sell or lease land near the new home for commercial development.

According to Kirk Sears, co-owner vice president of Lift Inc., based in Mountville (Lancaster County), the privately held company bought Reading Kubota and renamed it Reading Tractor & Equipment with the purpose of expanding Lift Inc.’s construction equipment line.

Lift Inc. hired Speedwell Construction Inc., a Lancaster County commercial construction company, as general contractor. Construction began last fall for the multimillion-dollar building that will consolidate the two businesses.

“The building will have two faces, one for Reading Tractor and the other one for Lift Inc.,” Sears said. “But the businesses will share certain common areas, like lunch rooms, training and conference rooms, shop areas, loading space and pressure washing bays.”

Lift Inc.’s portion of the building will serve as a material handling and distribution center for its lift trucks, aerial lift equipment and scissor and boom lift rentals. In addition, there will be a sales and service center for brands that include Crown, Toyota, JLG and Genie.

The other section will be for Reading Tractor’s Bobcat and Kubota products, CAM Superline Trailers, Exmark commercial mowers, Honda power equipment and Stihl power tools.

Sears said that when Lift Inc. acquired Reading Kubota, it also bought 14 acres of property on Route 61 in Leesport and plans to sell or lease the additional acreage for commercial use. LMS Commercial Real Estate of Lancaster is marketing the land.

The LMS website lists 4.3 acres of land on Pottsville Pike, Ontelaunee Township, where Lift Inc. is building the new facility. The pad site is listed for $1.2 million and is being marketed for retail or office space with public water and sewer.

Lift Inc. is owned by Sears and Don Herman. The business has been in operation since 1973, and Sears has been an owner the last 12 years. It has other full-service regional offices in Manheim, Mechanicsburg, Williamsport and Ephrata.

“Both the Bernville facility for Lift and Reading Tractor & Equipment’s current building will close with the opening of this new facility,” Sears said. “This will not necessarily create new jobs in the area, but it will make our business run more efficiently.”
