Leasing Market Overview


The San Fernando Valley (SFV) serves as a suburban retail hub, with a focus on catering to the local population. Distinguished by several large malls, this submarket attracts a diverse range of shoppers, spanning from lower-end dollar stores to high-end luxury retailers. The current vacancy rate stands at 4.4%, maintaining a relatively stable level since 2021. Notably, in 18Q1, the vacancy rate was as low as 3.9%, but recent vacancies include spaces of 10,000 SF and 40,000 SF.

Over the past six months, most leases signed are for spaces measuring less than 10,000 SF, offering rental rates that present a discount compared to the Greater L.A. retail market. Despite this, there has been significant rental growth compared to the metropolitan area over the past year.
