2020 has been a difficult year for nearly everyone in the world, and a devastating year for many. Our smarter and better angels are always looking for silver linings during a crisis. Capital Hall Partners sees a few in real estate.
We know many readers are pretty exhausted by the political cycle and the uncertainties surrounding the pandemic. Hopefully we can offer you a diversion, looking at a few areas of economic strength with constructive longer-term outlooks. In an effort to stay in our lane, we’ll focus on positive trends in real estate that we think readers should know about.
Looking Ahead to 2021
Capital Hall Partners is taking a cautious and patient approach to what we see as a bifurcated real estate market: life sciences, logistics-oriented buildings, data centers, and industrial commercial real estate are holding up nicely. Meanwhile, we fully expect pricing adjustments to the downside in hotel, retail, high density (urban) multi-family, and dense urban office space.
For now, our goal is to focus on the core: the LA, Boston, and Phoenix markets with an emphasis on life sciences, “healthy office,” and industrial commercial real estate. And as ever, we will look for distressed situations where Capital Hall Partners can recapitalize and reposition existing buildings.
