Available Fort Wayne office space near national norms

An annual review of office space in Fort Wayne shows vacancy rates comparable to what’s taking place nationally, a local broker says.

But more than that, the Zacher Co. market survey reveals the effect of Parkview Health’s new regional medical campus and a surging downtown, Steve Zacher, president of the company, said Tuesday.

“The biggest movement has been in the northeast quadrant as a number of medical offices have joined Parkview at its campus or nearby,” he said. “It’s a good thing for Fort Wayne overall.”

The Zacher survey covers September 2011 to September 2012. During that period, Fort Wayne had about a 17 percent office vacancy rate, compared to 15.6 percent nationally.
