Strengthening markets trigger real estate development cycle

Globe_blogJLL’s quarterly perspective reports that an abundance of equity, new capital formation and improving debt liquidity are supporting a robust global commercial real estate investment market. With the market on track to achieve the highest transaction volumes since 2007, JLL’s forecasts for full-year 2014 have been upgraded. In the occupational markets, most indicators show steady progress across all the main commercial sectors. Shortages of high-quality space are intensifying, which is helping to boost developer confidence and trigger an uptick in new construction.

Key highlights are as follows:

  • Momentum continues to build in the global real estate investment market
  • Office leasing market recovery is still patchy
  • Space shortages trigger office development cycle
  • Retail revival, polarisation and consolidation
  • Supply chain realignment boosts warehousing sector
  • Hotel investment maintains momentum
  • Mixed picture in residential sector
