San Antonio Retail Market Shows Stability

Weitzman’s new report on the San Antonio retail market shows a return to stability. Robert King, senior vice president with Weitzman in San Antonio, covers some of the report’s key findings.

ConnectCRE: How does occupancy look at mid-year?

King: The retail market is at 93.6 percent occupied at mid-year, halting the decline we saw during the pandemic challenges of 2020. We expect even more improvement through 2021 and 2022.

ConnectCRE: Why did occupancy improve?

King: Retailers, restaurants and services saw a return to healthy shopper traffic thanks to the effectiveness of vaccines. Closings also declined significantly compared to 2020, and spaces vacated last year are already being backfilled.

ConnectCRE: What about new construction?

King: Construction remains strongly conservative. We’re on track for around 415,000 square feet in projects with 25,000 square feet-plus. One new anchor, Costco, will account for more than one-third of all new space in 2021.
