Workers Are Returning To The Office In Texas Toll Road Centers

The Real Deal reports, Dallas, Austin and Houston (cities crisscrossed by tolled highway facilities) “are among the leading markets in office workers returning to the office. At the end of September, about 61 percent of Austin-area office workers were back at their desk, the Dallas Morning News reports, based on [a report by the JLL global real estate services firm] that tracked 10 top metro markets. Houston checked in at 58 percent, with Dallas at 54 percent. Nationwide, about 47 percent of office workers had returned, with New York about at the national average and San Francisco last on the list at 39 percent.” JLL predicts that hybrid work will not go away, but by early 2023, 65 percent of US office workers “should be back at their desk for a majority of the week.”
