Josh:  Hello, and welcome to this edition of weekly update my name is Joshua Vita. This weekend on our update we have Houston leads the nation in decline of sublease vacancies, George Bush Intercontinental Airport garage demolished for terminal expansion, and Tomball growth creates jobs and a boom in business and technology. All this after the intro.

OK, our first story up today is about the decline in sublease vacancies in Houston. As of right now Houston leads the nation in the amount of sublease office space absorbed by the market in 2020, according to Cushman and Wakefield. Local tenants took 71,000 square feet of sublease space off the market last year. That makes Houston, one of ten cities, that saw a net decline in sublease vacancies. There was a slight rebound last quarter in Houston , but office vacancies continue to rise. Colliers International report on Houston's office marker and that of 1,680 existing office buildings, 92 of those have 100,00 square feet or more contiguous space available for leasing or subleasing, and 26 of those buildings with 200,000 square feet available.

OK, next story today is about the George Bush Intercontinental Airport garage demolished for terminal expansion. So, the airport is moving forward wit this project which is going cost about @1.23 billion for this expansion. The Terminal D/E parking garage permanently closed on March 1st and any car full parked there after March 18th will be towed. There is currently no set fate for the demolition of the garage, and the expansion will be ht most significant expansion program in the 52-year history of the airport.

Ok, The last story up today is about Tomball's growth, creating jobs and a booming business and technology. So, Kelly Violette, Executive Director of the Tomball Economic Development Corp.
