DALLAS-FORT WORTH - DFW’s retail market ended 2015 with 91.6 percent occupancy, an increase of more than 1 percent over year-end 2014’s 90.5 percent occupancy rate. The 1.1 percent improvement represents a reduction in market wide vacant space of approximately 1.8 million sf.
Weitzman's 2016 Shopping Center Survey & Forecast also covers Austin, Houston and San Antonio markets.
This past calendar year marks only the third time in the past decade that the market breached the important 90-percent threshold. It also marks the highest overall market occupancy in 31 years. The 91.6 percent rate is second only to 1984.
The DFW occupancy rate is based on a total market inventory of 193,016,108 sf of retail space in shopping centers with 25,000 sf or more — the largest retail inventory for any metro area in Texas.
