2010.

Finally, 80,189 square feet of office space was leased, up 39 per cent from the 57,502 square feet leased in May 2010.

Industrial space in all size categories leased for an average of $3.72 per square foot net (sfn), a 24 per cent decline from the average of $4.87/sfn recorded in May 2010. Commercial space leased for an average of $22.35/sfn, up 37 per cent from the average of $16.29/sfn reported in May 2010.

Office space leased for an average of $12.62/sfn, almost unchanged from the average of $12.63/sfn in May 2010.
