Office 2016 for the Mac has been available for a considerable amount of time, with support for Office 2011 ending in October of this year (2017). Note: Microsoft had originally intended to end support as early as January 2016.

With Office 2011 for Mac, your Outlook files were stored within your Documents folder, in the folder “Office 2011 Identities” inside of the “Microsoft User Data” (~/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Office 2011 Identities).
This has changed as of Office 2016. Local storage for Outlook 2016 is to be found within the (user’s) Library folder, in the “Group Containers” folder:
~/Username/Library/Group Containers/XXXXXXXXXX.Office/Outlook/Outlook\ 15\ Profiles/Main\ Profile/Data
(where “XXXXXXXXX” is a 10-digit alpha-numeric string).
