Construction Pipeline 2022 ✈️

COVID, supply chain issues, the war in Ukraine, rising inflation, and economic fears, among other challenges had a profound impact on the hospitality, senior living, and multifamily industries.  A key indicator to the health of our business is the demand for new construction.   Let’s take a peek at the construction pipeline and see what the future holds in store.

This Year’s Multifamily Pipeline to Set Record👩‍👦👨‍👩‍👦👨‍👧

Marcus & Millichap is expecting the US to add roughly 400,000 new rentals in 2022, a record for the last few decades. Rental demand is anticipated to increase this year with rising interest rates and elevated single family home prices.

“The new supply will play a key role in appeasing the housing shortage,” Marcus & Millichap predicts.
The Sun Belt is poised to account for one-fourth of the new units with Dallas-Fort Worth, Phoenix, Austin, Houston, Nashville and Atlanta leading the way with each expected to add more than 10,000 units in 2022.

Migration to those metro areas is expected to combine to 250,000 new households this year.

Senior Living Construction Demand Rises in 2022👴🏻👵🏻

Demand among developers and operators for new senior living projects is higher in 2022 than in the prior year, even while construction costs and interest rates remain elevated.

Driving that increase in demand are favorable demographics, an expectation that construction prices will level off in 2023 and a shift in mindset from surviving the Covid-19 pandemic to planning for the future, according to construction firm Weitz Company’s latest Senior Living Construction Costs report.

The construction industry is moving at a brisk pace in 2022 and there is more than enough demand to subsist on for the foreseeable future.
