Rising Construction Activity and Higher Yields Attract Greater Investment

Fundamentals are expected to continue to improve in every property sector this year, even with the faster pace of development, as the tailwind of healthy economic growth bodes well for net operating income growth and investment performance, says an article for Development magazine by Lydia Tan and Martin Standiford, senior vice presidents for development in the Western and Eastern U.S., respectively, at Bentall Kennedy (U.S.).

This upbeat news has investors considering new development opportunities and is leading to higher construction levels across industrial, retail, office and apartment.

Naturally, the pace of growth differs by geography, and build-to-suit development has outweighed speculative in recent years. Trends in square footage per employee, e-commerce strategies and industrial infill are having an impact, and the old adage of “location, location, location” remains the key to successful development.

Read about vacancy rates and demand, market conditions, and outlooks for office, industrial, apartments and retail in the fall issue of Development magazine.
