The 48-story Chase Tower, the state’s tallest office building, has more vacant space than it has had in decades. But increasing speculation in the local office market that Salesforce.com will take a big chunk of space there could mean it is poised for a turnaround.
The Indianapolis-area industrial market ended the year with vacancy of just 3 percent, nearly half of what it was at the end of 2015. The upshot: More properties are needed, and several million square feet of space are in the pipeline.
With Salesforce.com establishing a 250,000-square-foot regional headquarters in the soon-to-be-christened Salesforce Tower Indianapolis, the building should become much more alluring when its owner shops it for sale.
