TOP RETAIL MARKET TO WATCH : Nashville, Tennessee

NashvilleA state capital with a skilled workforce and diverse economy, Nashville is staging a strong comeback in its retail fundamentals. The vacancy rate dropped by 100 basis points year-over-year in 2013 and is poised to enter single-digit territory this year. Absorption has been positive across all retail subsectors and has been most pronounced in the city’s malls, which accounted for nearly a third of net absorption. Mall fundamentals have firmed up markedly in the past 18 months, reining in vacancies from a rate in the mid-teens to more closely match the citywide rate near 10 percent. With little new space delivered in 2013 and a scant supply in the pipeline, fundamentals are on track for further improvement this year. As Nashville enters the radar screens of more investors at the national level, competition could help to preserve and enhance value as interest rates rise.

Dallas, TX | 2014 Top CRE Markets to Watch : Apartment

TOP APARTMENT MARKET TO WATCH : Dallas, Texas

DallasCombine low taxes, mild winters and a business-friendly climate with Dallas’ central location relative to both U.S. coasts, and it’s easy to see why this North Texas metro is enjoying annual economic growth of more than 3.5 percent. Reports early this year that logistics technology firm Omnitracs Inc. may bring as many as 1,000 jobs to the Dallas central business district simply added to the list of more than 50 major employers that have relocated to the metro area in the past two years, adding jobs and fueling population growth that will top 2 percent in 2014 alone. Renters in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro absorbed more than 16,600 apartment units in 2013, more than any other U.S. market, yet average vacancy of approximately 5.5 percent is well below the 10-year historical average of around 8 percent. While these fundamentals suggest good development prospects, the metro is also turning out apartments far faster than any other major market, completing nearly 13,000 units in 2013. That new supply could temporarily hamper rent growth in some submarkets.

San Antonio, TX | 2014 Top CRE Markets to Watch : Office

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.

Miami, FL | 2014 Top CRE Markets to Watch : Industrial

Sperry Van Ness International Corporation’s (SVNIC) 2014 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 2014.

TOP INDUSTRIAL MARKET TO WATCH : Miami, Florida

miamiAs a gateway to Latin America and the Caribbean, Miami’s port and intermodal hub is a center of growing demand for modern industrial space. Miami’s overall vacancy rate of 6 percent is down almost 100 basis points from a year ago, but with 1.5 million square feet added to the market in 2013 and a similar amount under construction, monthly rents have been flat at around 70 cents per square foot. The Port of Miami is investing $2 billion to service the largest container ships that will pass through the expanded Panama Canal when it reopens in late 2015. Improvements include dredging channels to a depth of 52 feet, installing massive dock cranes, and building a tunnel under Biscayne Bay to connect the port with nearby highways. Heated transaction volume has compressed cap rates on assets around the port to near 6 percent. Port Everglades, on the other hand, may present interesting opportunities for acquisition or development. Located 23 miles from Miami in Fort Lauderdale, Port Everglades handled approximately 1 million ten-foot equivalent units (TEUs) of containerized goods in 2013, trumping the Port of Miami’s volume by 50,000 and making Everglades the state’s busiest cargo port. The port is dredging its channels to a depth of 50 feet to handle larger ships, and an intermodal container transfer facility under construction will soon enable ships to unload cargo directly onto railcars.

New York City, NY | 2014 Top CRE Markets to Watch : Retail

TOP RETAIL MARKET TO WATCH : New York City, New York

3056953388_4512c89d0a_bThe retail recovery is old news in the Big Daddy of U.S. core markets. In New York City, the retail talk in 2014 is about new stores, strong sales, and intensive investment. Massive increases in tourism are a big part of the retail story, with more than 50 million visitors annually in each of the past three years. In 2013, tourists spent $8 billion at local retailers, excluding what they spent on dining and accommodations in the city. Fifth Avenue department stores and other high-end retailers aren’t the only shopping destinations with strong retail sales—the metro area’s dense population and high income demographic has supported more uniform demand across retail classes than in most other U.S. markets. More than 900,000 square feet of absorption, chiefly in the metro area’s neighborhood shopping centers, drove the vacancy rate below 5 percent in 2013. Developers added roughly 400,000 square feet to the local inventory, almost entirely in that same category of neighborhood centers. Outside the core areas and in the broader metro, strip centers have generally fallen behind other product types and experienced a 70,000-square foot demand contraction last year. Competition to acquire well-located properties is intense, and cap rates compressed through competitive bidding are squeezing out even heavily leveraged investors.

TOP APARTMENT MARKET TO WATCH : Boston, Massachusetts

BostonBoston’s position as a top multifamily investment market (just behind New York and San Francisco) has pushed asset pricing to record highs and made construction an attractive alternative for investors. Local builders and institutional developers from around the country are cranking out new multifamily product here at the rate of about 4,000 units per year. That is well behind the pace of new household formation, which will be nearer to 7,000 annually over the next several years here. A falling vacancy rate, currently near 4 percent, has sparked spectacular rent growth of 20 percent or more over the past five years, although rents may plateau as new projects deliver large blocks of space and add vacancy. Much of the new construction is taking the form of large urban towers, answering the demands of well-paid, highly educated young knowledge workers attracted to Boston’s 24-hour culture.

TOP OFFICE MARKET TO WATCH : Chicago, Illinois

chicago-1342075949YmtElevated but improving unemployment of 8.3 percent is a reminder that Chicago is lagging other major markets on the road to economic recovery. The office sector entered 2014 with nearly a fifth of its office space available for lease or sublease, but leasing activity appears to be accelerating. The central business district is attracting tenants from the suburbs as the urbanization trend takes hold, with employers moving closer to employees that live downtown. Office rents are exhibiting the volatility typical at the bottom of a market cycle, and posted a slight year-over-year decline at the end of 2013. Chicago’s diverse economy positions it for accelerated hiring as the national recovery gains momentum, but that growth is unlikely to bring substantial absorption of office space in 2014. For office investors seeking a bargain on assets in a top tier city, non-trophy assets in Chicago may harbor good opportunities with the potential to increase value as the local economic recovery finds its stride.

TOP INDUSTRIAL MARKET TO WATCH : Atlanta, GA

Atlanta, GAConstruction pumped more than 4.5 million square feet of new space into Atlanta’s industrial market in 2013, the largest addition since 2008. Build-to-suits accounted for more than three-fourths of the new space, however, and the additional speculative construction paled in the face of ravenous demand. Absorption hit a post-recession high of nearly 11 million square feet, driven chiefly by small and mid-sized companies. The vacancy rate plummeted 120 basis points from the previous year to end 2013 at 12 percent. The surge in construction and an increasing average rental rate both reflect the difficulty that tenants face in seeking modern, well-located space for growth. Although massive deals such as Home Depot’s 1.3 million-square-foot e-commerce center and a 1 million square- foot project for Procter & Gamble tend to dominate Atlanta’s real estate headlines, investors will find numerous opportunities catering to the small and mid-sized businesses that accounted for nearly 80 percent of the market’s industrial absorption in 2013.

TOP RETAIL MARKET TO WATCH : San Francisco, CA

San FranciscoConsumers are prospering in San Francisco, and that gives retailers and retail landlords something to celebrate. As one of the U.S. gateway markets that have drawn an outsized share of retailer expansions since the recession, however, San Francisco has essentially filled its inventory of Class A space and offers only limited availability in B properties. The barriers to entry that help to place a premium on existing space are also keeping the construction pipeline in check, forcing some retailers to delay expansions pending an improvement in the availability of suitable space. Cap rate compression and intensive competition for acquisitions have inspired many investors to turn their attentions from this top tier market to cities offering opportunities for larger annual returns. Yet for core retail investors, it’s hard to find a more attractive market than San Francisco.
