I bet there's some apples to apples reason for this if it's a national report
rents for urban space went up 3.2% while suburban went up 2.0% in the past year
that's a good sign for urban demand
The report also says KC burbs absorbed about 1.2M sqft space so far this year and a good amount downtown, another 500K. That's pretty high, up there with the hottest markets. Many other downtowns have negative absorption so far this year.
