Q1 2017 Cite Partners Central Florida Retail Investment Market Report


With 2016 well behind us and 2017 fully underway, it’s almost disheartening to continue the discussions surrounding President Trump. However, Trump’s presidency will have a direct impact on commercial real estate. President Trump is placing a significant focus on making changes to fiscal, trade, regulatory, and diplomatic policy with his economic plan; however, the details are still unknown. It will take a long time before we fully understand how the Trump Administration’s policies will impact the economy and the real estate market. As we have seen in past elections, it will be extremely difficult for Trump to realize any significant progress in his first year in office.

Q1 2017 Cite Partners Central Florida Office Market Report

Orlando Office – A Different Question of Sustainability

Sustainability is defined as ” the ability to be supported, upheld, or confirmed.” It is used today mostly in an ecological sense where it can mean “the quality of not being harmful to the environment or depleting natural resources, and thereby supporting long-term ecological balance.”

Sustainability in the Orlando Office Market is an important question – but not for the reason that you might think. The question that I ask is whether the successes that we’ve seen in the Office community through the last several years can be sustained. As the saying goes, the tide rises all boats – and that saying holds true for most of the submarkets in Orlando as virtually all markets saw an increase in productivity in 2016 (ie: vacancy decreases; rental rate increases; landlord sentiment is favorable; tenant incentives on the decline, etc.).
