Downtown St. Louis has a higher total vacancy rate than any other comparison city on this list but the Class A space vacancy is lower on average than any other. Not all cities broke down total numbers and Class A numbers. Many Class B and C office buildings have or are in the process of being converted to residential buildings. No other comparison city has a second CBD the size of Clayton, which certainly affects the downtown stats. Owner/occupied buildings such as AT&T, Purina and Wells Fargo are not tracked in these figures.
