The mortgage firm is one of dozens of Dallas-Fort Worth businesses that have put excess office space on the market to lease to other companies.

Adding to the glut of office space on the market in North Texas is a record 11.4 million square feet of sublease space – offices that companies are paying rent on but are no longer using. The average discount for sublease offices in D-FW has risen to almost 18%, according to commercial real estate firm Transwestern.

One of the largest blocks of sublease offices on the market in North Texas is a new tower in Plano built to house the headquarters of Reata Pharmaceuticals. The drug company sold to Biogen Inc. and the 20-story, 327,000-square-foot high-rise in Legacy business park is offered for sublease.

Counting the sublease space and buildings still under construction, almost 27% of D-FW office space is empty – the highest such vacancy in decades.
