Most leases sought range from 1,500 – 3,000 SF, typical in Tucson. Due to the demand for improving emotional well-being since the pandemic, established and start-up mental health groups are more active in the market. However, landlords are hesitant to accept companies that target their clientele population, making it to find long-term leases. Furthermore, many properties are not receiving the necessary updates as construction prices remain high. Although lease rates are holding steady, lease terms are beginning to trend upward.
The high-end and low-inventory Foothills submarket has experienced increased lease rates, but rental prices in Tucson remain consistent overall. The highest average asking rental rate is $28.24 per square foot (PSF) in the Foothills submarket, while the lowest is $15.61 PSF in East Tucson. Significant sales transactions include 4001 East Sunrise Drive, which sold for $9 million, 6502-6564 East Carondelet Drive for $1.4 million, and 1241-1245 North Wilmot for just shy of $1 million.
