Real Estate Developer Opportunities In Phoenix

Commercial real estate development in Phoenix

Phoenix, Arizona SkylineFor real estate developers, Phoenix represents a great opportunity to locate and invest in commercial real estate projects due to the city’s continued growth.

Phoenix Population Growth

Phoenix is at the center of one of the fastest growing metropolitan regions in the United States. As of 2017, the metropolitan population had reached over 4 million people and continues to soar. That year, the city itself had 1.6 million residents, making it the fifth largest city in the U.S.  By 2030, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates the population of Phoenix will increase to 2.2 million people and the population of the metro region will increase to 6.3 million people.

Arizona Economic Growth

Job growth continues to be strong throughout the state of Arizona. In July 2017,  job growth increased by 3 percent—nearly double the 1.7 percent growth the U.S. saw on average. This high rate continued throughout the year. The private sector carried the job growth with the highest growth coming from the education and health services sectors.

Many top employers are relocating their businesses to Phoenix. In particular, many logistics companies have set up shop here due to the city’s proximity to other locations in the Southwest, such as Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

Other strong industries in the area include:

  • Manufacturing, particularly electronics and aerospace
  • Financial services
  • Information technology
  • Healthcare services
  • Bioscience
  • Retail

The Phoenix metropolitan region is highly desirable for people from all demographics. The area attracts singles, families, snowbirds and retirees. With its attractive weather, strong growth and diverse economy, Phoenix will remain an appealing environment for commercial development.
