Top Office Market to Watch: San Antonio, TX

San Antonio, like many Texas metros, has experienced significant economic growth with minimal impacts from the past recession. Overall, total employment is at near record highs and unemployment sits at 3.7% as of January ‘16, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The metro’s diversified economic base from trade and manufacturing to research and finance has left the office market relatively healthy and poised to grow in 2016 and beyond. All key office sectors are growing, including Financial Activities, Professional and Business Services, and Information, at annualized rates of 2.1%, 2.0%, and 1.0%, respectively. San Antonio does have significant exposure to industries such as automobiles and energy that could come under pressure in continued global slowdowns, but overall the risk to the office market does not appear significant at this time.

San Antonio, TX | 2015 Top #CRE Markets to Watch: Retail

Sperry Van Ness International Corporation’s (SVNIC) 2015 Top Markets to Watch Reports assess the current state of the national commercial real estate market, and identify micro-trends within specific geographic regions and industries for 2015. Today we are delving into the 2015 Top Retail Markets to Watch. Not the largest or the most actively contested markets, the 2015 Retail Markets to Watch are each at an important juncture that presents unique opportunities for investment. Together, they reflect the diversity of trends that is driving the economy and commercial real estate performance in markets across the country.

Top Retail Market to Watch: San Antonio, TX

San Antonio: 2015 Top Retail MarketsContrasting national trends, San Antonio’s retail inventory grew in leaps and bounds in 2014. Developers added roughly 2 million square feet of new retail space during the year, nearly doubling the tally of deliveries from the market low point in 2012. Despite the new supply, occupancy has edged higher. CoStar reported a 5.5% vacancy rate for the fourth quarter of 2014, below San Antonio’s long-term average. Asking rents were relatively flat over the year but are expected to ramp up. Investors in the market may find that cap rates still reflect the slower rate of income gains, affording an opportunity for investment at a discount to fundamentals.

The balance of San Antonio’s retail development in 2014 came from large chain stores like Walmart and Sam’s Club. Walmart made big moves with the opening of a new Supercenter, as well as four smaller locations. Texas-based supermarket chain H-E-B also experimented with new concepts in 2014, renovating its oldest operating location on Nogalitos Street into its first two-story market in Texas. H-E-B plans to expand its corporate headquarters in downtown San Antonio, and build an adjoining 12,000-square-foot market, the only grocery store in the urban core. Once-troubled retail corridors, like Austin Highway, are seeing new life thanks to complementary multifamily development in the area.

TOP OFFICE MARKET TO WATCH : San Antonio, Texas

San AntonioNearly 2 percent annual population growth and a diverse employment base are propelling San Antonio’s economy at a healthy clip, but the market lags the performance and rising profile of the other major Texas metros of Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth and Austin. San Antonio’s longstanding strength in the military and aerospace sectors, coupled with close proximity to Austin’s high tech cluster, has fostered an important cyber security sub sector. Located less than an hour’s drive south of Austin, the Alamo City has also captured a large piece of the Eagle Ford Shale energy boom emanating from South Texas, while its business-friendly climate, thriving tourism and manufacturing jobs attract new residents and fuel home sales. Office tenants were still giving back space in 2012 but absorption turned positive here in 2013. Delivery of several new office projects slowed rent growth and pushed the office vacancy rate into the middle teens last year without softening conditions enough to hamper rental rate growth. More construction is likely to begin in 2014. For investors who missed the opportunity to acquire office assets in Houston, Dallas or Austin at the bottom of the market cycle, San Antonio offers acquisition and development opportunities in a market that is in the early stages of appreciation.
