“We saw a stabilization of leasing activity in the office market throughout 2014, as demand aligned with the available stock of quality of- fice space. Additionally, there was an almost unprecedented increase in demand for quality industrial space in strategic locations such as the Port area,” said James Hanson II, president and CEO of The Hampshire Companies. “We are committed to acquiring properties in strategically positioned markets and trans- forming them into the type of class-A, flexible spaces that meet the needs of today’s lead- ing companies and brands.” The Hampshire Companies finished the second half of 2014 strong, inking just over 1.2 million s/f of new leases and lease renewals. This surge in activity verifies that the commercial real estate market is continuing to regain its pre-recession form and The Hampshire Companies looks to build on last year’s success.
