Event Summary

The landscape of Phoenix has dramatically changed over the last decade: it has


by over 150,000 people in 6 years and ranked as the second

fastest growing American city in 2017. Greater Phoenix itself, which includes Chandler, Glendale, Scottsdale, and Tempe, holds a metropolitan population of approximately 4.5 million

and currently has dozens of

cranes breaking ground on CRE projects. Subsequently, there have been several opportunities within the all asset classes of real estate market to design, build and innovate new developments. JLL's Phoenix Market 2018 Snapshots

and CBRE's Phoenix Market

findings propose: - Phoenix

cap rates continue to compress, indicating a favorable market for current owners and landlords - Increased job growth, as well as activity in finance and tech, has fueled healthy

demand for both spec office and repositioned space - The retail market remains in fluctuation. Big-box retailers moving out causing increased vacancy, while food and fast-casual restaurants are moving in, increasing demand - Industrial markets continue to grow in the Valley of the Sun, with over

7 million sq. ft. of industrial space under construction at the end of 2018 Q1 - As Metro Phoenix's millennial population continues to grow, multifamily is positioned to


steady demand over the next 5 years As outlooks remain positive for the

Valley of the Sun, how can real estate executives, tenants and local leaders collaborate to

embrace rapid growth and development while maintaining Greater Phoenix's culture and uniqueness? Find out this
