Welcome to Houston
Houston’s robust economy, low cost of living and diverse population has made it the number one destination city for U-Haul for the last nine years. It has the fourth largest population in the U.S and is the 9th largest U.S. city by land area. People from around the globe relocate to Houston seeking the abundant opportunities in the industries of energy, health sciences, space technology and aviation. It is home to 25 Fortune 500 companies, is the energy capital of the world, has the nation’s largest port, based on foreign tonnage, and is also home of the world’s largest medical center. This amazingly resilient city has been the perfect fit for Avison Young’s Houston office since 2010 and continues to expand rapidly with the leadership of two industry veterans.

Order Up - Food Halls!March 22, 2019Not too long ago, the dominating trend in commercial real estate was co-working space, which was addressed in our September 2018 blog. Lately, it seems to be raining food halls – the trendy, chef-driven, micro-restaurants that are quickly becoming the ultimate amenity. Since 2016, Houston has seen eight food halls either open or announce their upcoming opening. Most of them are located downtown, with others popping up in The Heights and Rice Village. Is the collaboration of landlord and restaurateur just another flavor of the month, or will this become a signature dish of the commercial real estate landscape?

Houston Poised for 2019 Market Challenges & TransformationsJanuary 2019 blog post by Houston Principal & Managing Director Rand StephensJanuary 30, 2019It was a solid year for the commercial real estate industry in Houston. The office market maintained a slow and steady recovery track, and the industrial market ended 2018 on a strong and healthy note. Houston’s vigorous and diverse economy deserves most of the credit, with unemployment under 4% and nearly 115,000 jobs created over the last year. So, will 2019 continue to bring the Bayou City good (economic) health and prosperity? Several key factors unique to the Houston metro certainly have it well-positioned for another banner year (if not better). Houston’s zoning and land-use regulations are appealing to investors and developers.
