Report: San Diego Retail Market Posts Strong Third Quarter

The San Diego retail sector continues its post-pandemic rebound, as overall vacancy was a healthy 5.0% in Q3, down from a mark of 6.3% a year ago, according to a new report from Cushman & Wakefield. In addition, occupancy growth was a solid 342,000 square feet, for a year-to-date total of +885,000 square feet.

Neighborhood retail centers absorbed the most space at 196,000 square feet, followed by community centers, strip centers, power centers and lifestyle centers. Regional centers posted a 19,000-square-foot negative absorption.“Well located centers continue to have pricing power on the leasing front. Additionally, tenant’s continue to report strong sales in the neighborhood shopping center segment,” said CushWake Managing Director Phil Lyons.

San Diego County asking rents increased slightly in Q3 at $2.10 per square foot on a monthly triple net basis, up 1.4% quarter-over quarter. Meanwhile, sales volume was $276 million, a 2.3% drop from Q2’s $282 million.
