Pricing Recovery Spreads Across CRE Sectors

While the level of U.S. job growth hasn’t been very pleasing, the commercial real estate pricing recovery has continued and spread throughout the various sectors. The gains have made their way from institutional-grade buildings down to smaller general quality properties. According to CoStar’s latest CCRSI report,

…the two broadest measures of aggregate pricing for commercial properties each posted gains in May over year-ago levels, based on 853 repeat sales recorded during the month and more than 100,000 repeat sales since 1996. The commercial property pricing lift can also be attributed to the rising occupancy levels in most markets and increasing rents in the multifamily sector.

Morris Southeast Group Signs Svitzer to a New Lease

Morris Southeast Group is pleased to announce that we have helped the Netherlands-based maritime services firm Svitzer Salvage Americas Inc. sign a five-year lease for a strategic operations center in Dania Beach, FL. The 22,961-square-foot storage warehouse located in the Broward International Commerce Center (BICC) will be used by the company as storage space for its salvage operations beginning in September of this year.

Commenting on the deal, our very own Ken Morris stated that,

“…the deal package provided to Svitzer was attractive enough for them choose the BICC property over 11 other locations that we evaluated nearby. In addition, the two bay units under one roof are at the corner of the building and have the type of loading docks they required. Svitzer liked the location because it hit all three of its primary objectives of port access, airport proximity and convenience for employees from the tri-county area to get to work.”

Miami International Airport May Receive a New Mall

Everyone is familiar with the standard strip of stores at major airports that lure you in to buy last minute souvenirs and other things you didn’t know you needed while you wait for your flight, but Miami International Airport may step things up a notch.

The airport’s oldest terminal, Central Terminal, which was completed in the 1950s may be remodeled to include a multi-level shopping mall complete with escalators. The idea is one of many that are being considered for the terminal under a master plan for the airport.B Although still in the early phases the terminal would be completely modernized after the renovation, but it would still be able to handle passengers, retail, office and hotel space.

When speaking on the plans Jose Ramos, who is overseeing master plan development for the county Aviation Department, stated that “it would be a large retail development unlike what we have in travel anywhere in the United States.”
