"The sale of the Edgeworth Building represents a re-commitment from investors to own high quality, well located office properties in spite of recent headwinds in the market presented by the Covid-19 pandemic," stated Eric Robison, Executive Vice President at Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer. "The sale also signifies some of the unique strengths of the office market in Richmond, Virginia. Since the pandemic, Richmond's office properties have performed more favorably than those in peer cities like Raleigh, Charlotte and Nashville. Richmond has regained nearly 60% of the initial job losses caused by Covid-19 and office space put on the market for sublease has stayed relatively steady, totaling only 1.3% of market availabilities."
