Demand for commercial real estate has maintained its strength in the greater Phoenix area. A lacking supply of affordable residential housing and industrial properties has provided developers ample opportunity for new projects, however, economic conditions - especially supply chain shocks - have limited the supply of labor and materials required for these projects. As a result, construction costs have increased significantly.
Phoenix is currently ranked fifth nationally for industrial space currently under construction (approx. 35 million square feet). However, new developments come at a new price: input materials have increased 20% YoY since 2020 and products like concrete are taking up to a year and a half to receive.
Chicago-based LG Development Group has proposed a 29-story mixed-use building that would cover a 2-acre site at 601 N.

Such an addition of housing units should, in theory, contribute heavily to the desired outcome of greater affordability within the greater Phoenix area.
