I attended ULI Atlanta’s Emerging Trends in Real Estate 2019 last week at the City Winery at Ponce City Market in Atlanta, GA.
The presentation was a quick run through of the data rich report prepared by PWC every year. There is a lot of great information in the report related to how our clients view the current market, what successful real estate stakeholders are doing to differentiate themselves, and a breakdown of market types and geographic regions. Particularly fascinating is how much owners are investing in amenities to keep tenants and workers happy. We are still in the midst of a long and successful real-estate cycle, but as the report shows, the length of economic cycles in the global economy can be much longer than prior cycles.
The presentation was followed up by an excellent panel discussion regarding the challenges facing the Atlanta commercial real estate market and how the market leaders poised to deal with them, as well as identifying current “trends” versus passing “fads.” Topics of discussion included: last mile connectivity and the part that motorized scooters play in commuting, coworking, traffic, affordable housing, and Atlanta United.
