3 Oklahoma City Year-End Office Market Summary Despite an uptick in the second half of the year, the Oklahoma City Office Market ended with a drop in its vacancy rate from 16.4% to 16.2%. Perhaps what is most impressive is the market s stability. Despite 500,000 square feet of space hitting the market in from Devon s phased relocation to its new downtown corporate headquarters, the market seemed to just shrug that off with solid absorption of that vacancy and another strong performance by the Northwest submarket where the overall vacancy rate is now under 1. In fact, the Central Business District recorded negative absorption of only 91,000 square feet during the year. Most impressively, Class A vacancies in the CBD fell from 8% to 4%. That low vacancy should lead to at least two new small Class A redevelopments in the CBD in the coming year or two at the long vacant Century Center and the old Journal Record Building which has been vacant since the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in In fact, the Century Center has recently announced that the Oklahoma Publishing Company (OPUBCO) will anchor approximately 65,000 square feet in its redevelopment. Those two projects could add approximately 200,000 square feet of much needed premium office space to the CBD. Other new projects are rumored, but not yet confirmed. Despite improvement in its better buildings the Central Business District experienced an increase in its vacancy rate from 22.8% to 24.6% during. Offsetting the Devon vacancy will certainly be an ongoing challenge for downtown landlords, as the remaining Devon space is located in Class B and Class C buildings. While the downtown market was admirably fighting through the task of replacing its largest user of leased space, the suburban markets continued the stable improvement of the past 3 years. Although it should be noted that the second half of the year saw negative absorption in all submarkets except the Northwest, which once again retained its position as the market s strongest with only a 7.7% vacancy rate. Class A vacancy in the suburbs is virtually non-existent with the vacancy rate for better buildings falling to just 4.2%. Correspondingly, Class A rental rates rose from $20.85 to $21.46 per square foot during the year. The suburban markets are not without their challenges in the coming year. With increasing rental rates and such low vacancy rates one could normally expect construction of new projects to ramp up, but no new space is currently under construction. The biggest reason for that seems to be developers uncertainty regarding Chesapeake Energy s space needs. Chesapeake has been the suburban markets best friend over the past several years by acquiring several hundred thousand square feet of space either by purchase of entire buildings or the leasing of significant blocks of space. With its disposition of several billion dollars in assets, Chesapeake s employee count is shrinking and with it, it s appetite for space. Several buildings that were already under construction on its main campus at NW 63rd and Western are still being completed which will further reduce the company s need for off-campus space. How well the market absorbs that off-campus space will be the true test of the suburban markets strength in the next few years. Another significant move that will occur in 2013 will be American Fidelity s relocation from its longtime home at 2000 Classen Center to the OPUBCO building on Broadway Extension and Britton Road. That move will effectively create an approximately 300,000 square foot hole in the Midtown market which is comprised of older Class B and C properties. The OPUBCO building was never tracked in our report because it was an owner-occupied building. For the local market to perform as well as it did in is a testament to the city s strong local economy reflected in the country s lowest unemployment rate of only 4.5 %. The city also ranks at or near the top of all US cities in terms of personal income and job growth. Much of the challenge facing the local office market is due to the financial strength of local companies relocating to more modern facilities, but there is also the possibility of some companies reducing their space needs. However, we see more positive than negative going forward and we are very optimistic about the prospects for the local office market.

16 Year-End Oklahoma City Office Market Summary Oklahoma City saw another very active year of office building sales activity in. Although Price Edwards & Company tracks all office building and medical office buildings sales, this particular report is limited to general office building sales of those properties containing a minimum of 25,000 square feet. Using those parameters, there were a total of 15 transactions containing approximately 2,443,000 square feet and having an aggregate sales value of just over $138 million. Typically, the suburbs experience the most sales activity, and was no exception with 10 of the 15 transactions involving suburban assets. Those 10 transactions comprised roughly 1.1 million square feet and $118 million of value. Included in these sales figures is OPUBCO selling its corporate headquarters office tower and adjacent parking garage for $40 million to an entity affiliated with American Fidelity Insurance, which will occupy most of the tower; the almost $35 million of additional consideration paid for the printing facility and approximately 100 acres of surrounding land is not included in our figures. Another notable transaction was the sale in December of the 280,000 square foot, Class A, Caliber Center at NW Expressway and Portland by Chesapeake Energy. IBC Bank, which occupies roughly 50,000 square feet, purchased the facility for $32.5 million. The energy firm also sold in December the Harvey Parkway building to a local investor group which will ultimately occupy a portion of the building. OPUBCO Tower In the aggregate, Class A suburban assets continue to maintain an average value well north of $100 per square foot. Pricing for Class B assets has crept up over the last several years, due to increased occupancies and rising effective rental rates, where they are now approaching values of $100 per square foot, a level not seen in many years. Although the CBD and adjacent areas did not see as many transactions, many were very interesting in terms of Oklahoma City s continued redevelopment progress and evolution. First, American Farmers & Ranchers Insurance sold its 177,000 square foot facility to the OCU Law School for $10 million. This conversion from general office space to a use more closely associated with its old Central High School heritage, represents an outstanding opportunity for a number of law school students and professors to soon become a part of the downtown and near downtown community fabric. The Caliber Center The Osler building at 1200 North Walker, a long vacant office property, is also being converted, in this instance for hotel use by Coury Properties of Tulsa; this is the same firm which redeveloped the Colcord office building for hotel use before selling it to Devon Energy. This will add to the incredibly successful metamorphosis of the midtown area, led by Midtown Renaissance, LLC which has made tremendous progress the last several years in redeveloping vacant properties into vibrant offices, retail shops and residential units. Coury s boutique hotel will be one more tremendous addition to the area. Another conversion worth noting is the Century Center Mall. Sold to an investor group led by Steve Hurst, this almost totally vacant property will soon see new life with the relocation of OPUBCO, which will occupy roughly 67,000 square feet. With the addition of 400 additional parking spaces on top of the property, and new retail and restaurants on the first floor, Century Center Mall is poised to become a vibrant addition to the heart of the CBD. The other significant CBD transaction involved the long suffering First National Center. The almost 1 million square foot facility was sold, after repeated delays by the federal bankruptcy court, for $5.3 million to a California investor. The future of the property continues to remain unclear as no new redevelopment plans have been announced, nor have any visible construction improvements have been made. Given Oklahoma City s economic performance relative to the rest of the country, it is expected 2013 will see another very active year in the office sector. We expect the number of value-add opportunities will continue to be scarce, other than the potential divestiture of assets by Chesapeake. Owners of well leased, well located and well maintained assets housing solid credit tenants will have ample opportunity to take some chips off the table with an ever increasing population of both local and out-of-state buyers looking to invest in the Oklahoma City market.
