COURTESY: CBRE - If a market is shown to be to the left of the center vertical line, it has a lower than average amount of available sublease space, meaning it is not impacted much by rising sublease space. If a market is above the center horizontal line, then what sublease space is available is concentrated or mostly being put on the market as excess space by tech firms. So Portland has a low risk of sublease space impacting market conditions (causing vacancy to rise or rents to decline) and Chicago has a medium-low risk with slightly higher sublease availability and tech firms disposing of excess space.
