JLL’s Chart of the Week:
Cross-border investment still strong, but preliminary 2016 estimates
According to preliminary Q4 2016 numbers from RCA, total foreign investment into U.S. commercial real estate declined since its peak in 2015. However, as coastal markets are seeing their cross-border deal flow tighten, Midwest markets like Minneapolis-St. Paul are benefiting from more affordable inventory and less volatile economic growth.
In the final quarter of 2016, Shorenstein Properties sold 33 South Sixth Street to Chinese investor HNA Group for $315 million. This was the largest office sale in Minneapolis’ history. The opportunity for additional foreign direct investment (FDI) will escalate as Asian and European firms seek real estate investments in growing, stable markets.
