The Bay Area's Biggest Multifamily Deliveries Of Q2

The region’s multifamily construction pipeline remains robust with 35,000 units under construction and thousands of units delivering this year across the Bay Area. From January 2017 to June 2018, over 11,500 units have been delivered with 1,400 delivering in the second quarter, according to a report from Cushman & Wakefield.

Since 2016, over 23,700 units have been delivered. Even with an increase in supply, demand remains strong, job growth robust and rents are projected to continue to rise over the next 12 months.

Multifamily developments will be among the topics discussed during Bisnow’s Multifamily Annual Conference NorCal in November. Additional topics will include affordable housing, the investment outlook, the next generation of amenities, and modular and prefab housing.
