Atlanta State of the Market

*This event is approved for 4 Continuing Education Credits through the Georgia Real Estate Commission in partnership with the Institute of Real Estate Management - Georgia Chapter.*

Corporate expansion and relocation has fueled job and population growth in the Atlanta area for the last several years. Investment and leasing markets remained stable throughout 2018, and are expected to remain that way. 

The city offers both opportunity and affordability - giving developers incentive to invest in the city and for rents to continue to rise. The city is experiencing the highest level of construction in the current cycle, and much of the new inventory is build-to-suit, which has fueled positive absorption rates. These favorable conditions, along with the availability of capital, have maintained Atlanta as a lucrative environment for deals. 

Midtown alone has several major projects coming online: North American Properties' Colony Square, Selig Enterprises's 1125 Peachtree and Landmark Properties' student housing tower, The Mark. Find out from these developers and more what their challenges have been and how these projects are impacting the greater Atlanta metro area, as well as what trends like the rise of grocery and entertainment anchored mixed-use centers are gaining traction. 

 

Topics to Include: 

1. Where is capital flowing and what are some of the best investment products to look for in Atlanta? 

2. What are the major projects being developed, like the $355 million-dollar Tech Square, and how will they impact Atlanta's CRE market and economy?

3. What trends, like the rise of mixed-use properties, have continued to attract tenants to the metro area? 

4. What are Atlanta's strongest fundamentals and how will they protect the city's real estate market in the next downturn? 

5. What are the commonalities of major projects and how do people and location interplay to make those projects successful?

6. How will Atlanta’s sustained employment growth support demand for office space?

Find out all this and more as we gather CRE's top owners and developers to analyze the dominant trends of 2019, as well as predict what next year will bring. It's a State of the Market event you don't want to miss!
