Adaptive reuse is a way for commercial properties to find a new life, and they can be a win-win situation for developers and a community. This is the case for Minute Maid Park, the home of the Houston Astros Major League Baseball team. Through creative design and planning, Houston has a ballpark that is unlike any other. It gives a nod to its past while projecting success for the future, and adaptive reuse has made it into the iconic site that it is today. Long before the Astros were founded and even longer before Minute Maid Park was constructed, the plot of land in downtown Houston at 501 Crawford Street belonged to the Houston Belt and Terminal Railway Company. The company dedicated the opening of Union Station in 1911, and it served as the main passenger ... [Read More]

Insights on current research in the commercial real estate industry from HFF Managing Director of Research Jimmy Hinton. View the Daily Rates on the HFF website. A “full” employment market and growing consumer costs (finally) gave the FOMC sufficient confidence to raise their Target Fed Funds Rate Wednesday. As savers rejoice for modestly higher returns, President Trump announced record federal discretionary spending cuts to offset expansion in the Departments of Defense, Veterans Affairs and Homeland Security. In spite of a very low unemployment rate nationally, the country was able to add 235,000 net new jobs in February, the 77th consecutive month of growth and the first consecutive print above 200,000 since last summer.

Tuesday, March 07, 2017

Booming job growth in certain areas of the country is changing multi-housing development. One example is Silicon Valley, where tech companies continue driving the region’s employment growth. While thousands of new jobs are added year-after-year, the housing supply is unable to keep pace with the demand. According to a San Francisco Chronicle report, Mountain View added more than 17,000 new jobs between 2012 and 2015, but only added 779 new housing units. In response, a new developer trend is emerging: Silicon Valley companies building housing for area employees.
