CoStar Group Releases New Retail Sector Results | news



Researchers at CoStar Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSGP) – a leading provider of online real estate marketplace, information and analysis to the commercial and residential real estate markets – today have a fresh look at the recovery trends in the commercial real estate retail market in the wake of the global pandemic .

According to analysts at CoStar Group, live work-play office nodes are emerging as a trend that can help protect city retailers from increased levels of remote work.

“Before the pandemic, retail in urban office areas served as an accessible convenience for office workers — perfect for running errands and having lunch with colleagues or a client — but physical office occupancy is still well below urban retail baseline levels sites continue to miss out on an important revenue stream as a result of the pandemic,” said Peter Ferramosca, consultant, CoStar Group. “Our research found that continued mixed-use development trends that create a ‘live-work-play’ environment could limit the negative impact of lower office usage on nearby retail and have the potential to offer investors inflated returns. “

Among the office hubs identified by CoStar Group researchers, the Hudson Waterfront submarket and the NoMa submarket in Washington DC stood out the most.

According to the CoStar Group, more than half of Hudson Waterfront’s commercial real estate portfolio consists of rentable building area (RBA). Additionally, retail rent growth in Hudson Waterfront outperformed the broader New York retail market by 90 basis points from Q4 2019 to Q1 2022.

Ferramosca continued, “Our data tells us that office hubs with a relatively high density of multi-family homes could offer greater revenue potential for local retailers. On average, apartment dwellers spend more consistently on essentials during the week and further increase weekend spend on shopping and entertainment, making it a potentially thriving environment.”

Washington DC’s NoMa submarket is another standout submarket, aided both by its stability due to the concentration of government offices and its inventory, which is 33% multifamily. Retail vacancies in this office hub have fallen 4.3% more than DC as a whole.
