GTA Commercial REALTORS® Report April Monthly Commercial Figures

TREB Commercial Members reported 842,406 square feet of leased space in April 2011, down 27 per cent from the 1,155,944 leased square feet reported in April 2010.

“As the Canadian economy continues to expand in 2011, demand for commercial real estate is expected to remain healthy, albeit with some
month-to-month volatility in transactions. Exports are generally expected to make a larger contribution to growth this year, which is important for firms located in the GTA,” noted Toronto Real Estate Board Commercial Division Chair Larry Purchase.

Finally, 51,450 square feet of office space was leased, down 32 per cent from the 75,820 square feet leased in April 2010.

Industrial space in all size categories leased for an average of $4.33 per square foot net (sfn), a 10 per cent decline from the average of 4.79/sfn recorded in April 2010. Commercial space leased for an average of $16.24/sfn, up 32 per cent from the average of $12.34/sfn reported in April 2010.
