Our Top 10 Cities for Development

Nashville, Tennessee

The commercial real estate market in “Music City” has been music to investors’ ears for some time now. Fortunately, not even the COVID-19 pandemic has been enough to stop Nashville’s momentum, and Amazon is hard at work building a $230 million facility downtown. Another $585 million project will bring a swanky Ritz-Carlton Hotel to the SoBro District.

Atlanta, Georgia

Recently, Forbes named this city a top market for commercial real estate investment. It’s become a hotspot for “hipsturbia,” or the development of suburban mixed-use spaces accessible to pedestrians.

San Jose, California

Development in San Jose has been strong lately, and it’s easy to see why. The city’s downtown district is designated as a qualified opportunity zone to drive economic development.

Austin, Texas

Since it’s a leader in job growth, it stands to reason that Austin’s experiencing a population boom. Major corporations have taken notice – including Apple, which is building a campus there.

Charlotte, North Carolina

Charlotte has already started bouncing back from the economic effects of the pandemic. Industries that are particularly strong in this city include IT, business/professional services, and finance, all of which had no trouble adapting to remote work. Efforts to expand the LYNX Blue Line should help make the city even more appealing.

Phoenix, Arizona

With a name closely tied to rebirth, it’s no wonder Phoenix has already started recovering from the pandemic. It’s also benefitted from people moving out of many California metro areas en masse.

Boston, Massachusetts

Unlike many cities here, growth isn’t expected for Boston’s job market or population. However, this city’s GDP per capita is among the nation’s highest.

Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas

This metropolitan area’s future is up in the air – in a good way! Expanded rail will link Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport to nearby communities. Along with this, American Airlines is investing in a new airport terminal.

Tampa-St. Petersburg, Florida

This metro area boasts no state income tax, but that’s not all it has to offer. Population growth has been healthy, while its location in the Sunbelt is appealing.

Raleigh, North Carolina

Raleigh’s been a boom market for all types of real estate as of late, and that includes commercial real estate development. The local population has exploded in the past decade, and tourism has also been strong. On the commercial side of things, one of the most significant projects in the works right now is a $20 million mixed-use development known as Hub RTP.
