Local CRE Trends

Phoenix, Arizona is the fifth largest city in the United States by population and the most populous state capital. It is the center of one of the fastest growing job markets and economies in the U.S. – in the last five years, more than $4 billion was invested in office space, retail, restaurants, educational facilities, and hospitality space, according to the City of Phoenix Community and Economic Development Department. Its prime location, just a few hours from major markets in California and Mexico, makes it an ideal place for entrepreneurs to establish a new business.

Downtown Phoenix has the highest concentration of employment in Arizona and is experiencing dramatic growth due to a number of large-scale projects such as the Phoenix Convention Center expansion, Valley Metro Light Rail and the Phoenix Biomedical Campus. The Phoenix Biomedical Campus hosts the highest concentration of research scientists and professionals in the region. The Phoenix Biomedical Campus offers a unique opportunity for bio-industry companies to connect, collaborate and partner with leading organizations in the industry, including nationally recognized biomedical education programs, according to the City of Phoenix Community and Economic Development Department.

The Greater Phoenix commercial real estate market has been on an upswing for the past several years, according to real estate services firm Colliers International. The market outlook predicts continued improvement as Phoenix attracts relocations and expansions. Recently, the Phoenix metro area tied as the ninth-fastest growing economy among the Top 25 metros, according to the U.S. Bureau of Economy Analysis.
