A new Cushman & Wakefield Capital Markets Research report looks at the international investment market, with a deep dive into what’s happened in the past year, and our view of how the market is going to evolve in the coming months. It looks at the major regions around the world, and closely investigates some of the biggest commercial real estate markets — New York, Chicago, Hong Kong, etc. — that drive a significant portion of the investment in each of those regions.
Atlanta is identified as a Core-Plus growth office market in the Americas, alongside Miami, Seattle, Austin, Denver and other tech or lifestyle cities. This is a reflection of the metro area’s continued economic strength over the past few years, and a renewed interest in Atlanta among the international investment community.
As far as North America as a whole goes, it has remained the driving force behind the global market, with volumes ahead 23.2% last year, and cross-border investment in the U.S. rose by more than 70%. Apartments and offices were the best performing sectors in the U.S., but all sectors have seen improving fundamentals.
