Local CRE Trends

The Boston commercial real estate market is poised for strong, continued growth. As the hub of New England, Boston is home to a dynamic economy that includes a unique blend of talent, resources and intellectual capital. Companies specializing in healthcare, finance and technology create high-wage jobs that continue to attract multifamily housing and industrial properties. This powerful city contains some of the most dynamic and complex commercial real estate in world, along with historic communities and charming residential neighborhoods.

It's no surprise that in the 2017 JLL City Momentum Index, which tracks the speed of change of a city's economy and commercial real estate market, Boston ranked as among the top 10 cities globally, coming in ninth in the world and third in the U.S., behind only Silicon Valley and Austin. The CMI identifies cities that have the potential to “maintain the greatest dynamism over the short- and long-term,” according to JLL, and identifies cities with the ability to “embrace technological change, absorb rapid population growth and strengthen global connectivity.”

Boston's large technology workforce and intellectual capital continue to attract new start-ups and global companies, which in turn will help drive commercial real estate values.
