Steve Brown with The Dallas Morning News reports The COVID-19 pandemic has put a chill on the tech sector’s demand for office space.

But the Dallas-Fort Worth area is still on the list of markets expected to see the most growth in tech industry employment, according to a report by commercial property firm CBRE.

U.S. office leasing by tech firms was down 46% at midyear compared with average 2019 activity, CBRE researchers found.
