Strong Consumer Confidence, Job Growth & Global Economic Resilience Create “Goldilocks” Economy T he U.S. economy has entered a Goldilocks scenario, one that is not too hot or too cold, but “just about right,” Cushman & Wakefield’s U.S. Macro Forecast reveals. Real GDP is on track to grow slightly over 2% in 2017, generating nearly 2 million net new jobs this year. The economy’s temperature also seems to be “just about right” for consumers. Confidence is hovering at a near-15-year high, retail sales are acceler- ating at a 5% rate year-over- year and credit is flowing. In addition, the global economy is also resurgent. World nominal GDP growth is expected to be four times greater this year than it was last year, bolster- ing global trade and business confidence. But by many metrics, the economy is certainly not “too hot.” Inflation is one suchmea- sure. Despite a low unemploy- ment rate, wage growth re- mains mostly muted and core inflation remains stubbornly below the Federal Reserve’s target rate of 2%. History suggests that when the labor market is near full employ- ment, core inflation should be higher; however, in August, the Fed’s preferred measure of inflation—the core Personal Core Expenditures (PCE) in- dex —was up only 1.4% year- over-year. info@navesinkrivercapital.com www.navesinkrivercapital.com Jonathan L.

Prospects for 2018 look good. Downside risks lie mostly on the policy side, but assuming there is a bit of fiscal stimulus, real GDP will finally flirt with that 3% threshold next year, at least on a quarterly basis. There is a decent chance that the current economic expansion will be longest in the post WWII era.” Property market funda-

mentals are performing well, aside from retail, which con- tinues to face headwinds from eCommerce. Demand metrics such as net absorption are on par with, if not slightly off, last year’s levels. Construc- tion will soon start to drive vacancy rates upward, but any increase will be gradual. Leasing markets will be car- ried by the broad and steady health of the labor markets and consumers. The wave of new supply that hits in 2017 and 2018 will put a cap on rent growth, and a shift towards a more occupier friendly market should be expected in most U.S. cities next year. The capital markets are a bit slower in terms of sales vol- ume, but pricing continues to hold, and investors continue to seek opportunities in primary and secondary cities. However, the tenuous interest rate out- look adds to the uncertainty in capital markets. Even so, supportive global monetary policy and relatively low inter- est rates are expected to drive sufficient capital into CRE over the coming years. n

climate of all markets. Alessandro Conte, CCIM, SIOR is an executive vice president at The Blau & Berg Company. n The Blau & Berg Co. reflects on the military service of its fellow employees SHORT HILLS, NJ —With Veterans Day approaching, The Blau & Berg Company , a prominent commercial real estate brokerage firm in the New Jersey and Tri-State area since 1932, is taking the oppor- tunity to reflect on the military service of its fellow employees. Remembering those who have served our country throughout its history takes on added im- portance on this day, however The Blau & Berg Company also strives to recognize these key members of our community throughout the year. Kenneth F. Crimmins , CEO & Chairman, is a veteran of the U.S. Navy. After gradu- ating from Officer Candidate School in Newport, RI in 1966, he was assigned duty aboard the U.S.S. Galveston as a weap- on’s officer. During his time in theMediterranean, the Six-Day or June War of 1967 occurred as Israel invaded the Egyptian Sinai. Ken also served a one- year tour in Vietnam, where he was awarded the bronze star, and left the Navy in 1969 as a Lieutenant. Brad Jacobs , assistant di- rector, is a veteran of the U.S. Army Signal Corp. He enlisted in 1997 as a Private First Class and was part of the Army’s military intelligence, which is responsible for collecting and providing essential informa- tion that often saves the lives of solders on front lines. With the recent hiring of Christian Benedetto , direc- tor of business development, The Blau & Berg Co. is proud to be in the planning stages of a long-term commitment to giving back to those who sacri- ficed so much on behalf of our country. The program will be announced in early 2018, but, in the meantime, the company is committed to supporting Christian’s ongoing efforts by sharing his story and the work he does to support his fellow service members. After enlisting in the United States Marine Corp in the late 1980s, Christian Benedetto continued on page 14A

he current commer- cial real estate envi- ronment has investors

buyers a comfort level on the acquisition. Users are easing back into the driver’s seat of this market. Typically, a user can weath- er the volatility of a real estate market better than the inves- tor. Ultimately, the user will need the space regardless of values, while the investor will need to replace a tenant at a potentially lower rate. This factor, coupled with the thin margins of today’s investment sales, makes investors more conservative, allowing users to get back in the market. Landlords have been the

big winners in recent years - rental rates have nearly doubled since 2009, mak- ing their investments more valuable and profitable. The concern for them is how long should they reap the rewards of high rentals before selling off at peak prices. If they sell to soon in this cycle, they may miss out on these rich rents. If they ell too late in the cycle, they may miss out on the high valuation. Developers are facing the biggest hurdles today. Land values are also at all-time highs. Thinning margins and

competition raise risk for developers, but the biggest obstacle continues to be the entitlement process. Develop- ers are concerned that if the market turns for the worse the valuations for the land today may hinder leasing potential of a fully entitled project that can take up to two years. Overall, the landlords, users and developers we are working with still feel there is meat on the bone and that this current cycle will continue for at least a couple of years, not with- standing any outside political turmoil that can change the

a n d u s e r s alike in a con- stant state of “where are we i n th i s cycle”. The biggest issue today is won- dering if we have peaked

$5 million renovation set to begin at Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center Marquis Health Services assumes management of skilled nursing facility

OSTON, MA — Mar- quis Health Ser- vices , the healthcare affiliate of Tryko Partners, LLC , has assumed operational management of North End Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center in Boston. The organi- zation will begin a $5 million renovation at the skilled nurs- ing facility, formerly known as Spaulding Nursing and Therapy Center – in early 2018. Tryko Partners purchased the facility at 70 Fulton St. in March from Spaulding Reha- bilitation Network, part of the Partners HealthCare system; Partners continued to man- age the property during the transition. Under Marquis, the property will be licensed for 100 patients, including 70 beds for long-term residents and 30 beds for short-term rehabilitation patients. “We have been working closely with Partners Health- Care to ensure the smooth Baltimore, MD — Da- vid Paulson, SIOR of Blue & Obrecht Realty, LLC / CORFAC International recently facilitated the $3.75 million sale of 3455 Wilkens Ave. in Baltimore on behalf of the seller, Tsunami, LLC. The building was purchased by Reza Parvizi, a local investor. Located on the campus of St. Agnes Hospital, the 39,121 s/f, three-story medi- cal office building is substan- tially leased, with many long term tenants. In a second transaction, University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center has signed a lease to occupy 9,000 s/f of medical office space at 9110 Philadelphia Rd. in Rosedale.

After M&T Bank provided the acquisition financing for North End Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center, it was a natural fit for Tryko to choose the same partner to finance the operations closing and renovation, according to Chad Buchanan , chief investment officer. “The North End is a strategic addition to our port- folio,” he said. “I am confident M&T Bank understands this facility’s significance to us and its importance in the com- munity.” For Brick, NJ based Tryko Partners and Marquis Health Services, the acquisition of the North End skilled nurs- ing facility marks the firm’s continued expansion. Marquis Health Services currently operates 17 facilities totaling more than 2,000 beds. The company is recognized as a leading provider for long- term care and rehabilitation services in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. n

10 properties. According to Rokeach, it provides a wel- come opportunity for his team to grow its relationships with local healthcare providers. Marquis has immediate plans to enhance its patient programming. For example, it will introduce cardio-pul- monary and stroke recovery programs with the intent to strengthen clinical outcomes for both short- and long-term skilled nursing patients. The capital improvements will include the addition of a 3,000 s/f therapy gym and upgrades to all rooms, bath- rooms and common areas. Renovations will be conducted in stages, floor by floor, and also will feature the conver- sion of 50 semi-private rooms into private suites. “We are excited to begin the renovation process and take this facility to the next level as soon as we re- ceive the necessary approvals at the state and local levels,” Kahanow added.
