Nationally, the amount of sublease space increased by almost 24%  between Q1 2022 and Q1 2023 among 50 metro areas examined by  Moody’s Analytics Inc.

Office sublease space is growing across the United States, but  there are key trends that dictate which cities are seeing the  greatest increase in space coming to market.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Northeast saw the biggest increase in  the amount of sublease space listed on the market between the  first quarter of 2022 and the first quarter of 2023, an analysis by  New York-based Moody’s Analytics Inc. recently found. Among  major Northeastern cities, Boston saw the biggest increase in that  time period, with its sublease inventory growing 83.2% in that one-  year period.
