Challenge: Cost overruns and hard costs continue to climb.
Projects are getting more difficult to get started. You want to push forward, but you are worried about protecting your returns.
Since the onset of the pandemic, surging construction costs have impacted the commercial real estate industry. Clarion Partners, a leading U.S. real estate investment manager, points out that these higher construction prices, along with significant increase in land costs, are resulting in lower profit margins on new development and renovations, plus project budget overruns and delays. “This unprecedented surge in construction costs is having profound impacts on both new development projects and existing CRE assets,” they note.
All of us in the commercial real estate industry are feeling these effects. PACE Equity offers potential solutions to the challenges we are facing for both new construction and renovation projects.
