Tri-Valley Year End Retail Review

The long awaited market rebound has finally come to fruition. It has been a slow moving train but vacancy rates all across the Tri-Valley have stabilized at five-year lows. In addition to vacancy rates dropping dramatically, there has been a boom in new construction. Unfortunately, the additional inventory and quick absorption of this new space does not translate into the numbers. When analyzing the numbers, they are actually better than extremely positive results illustrated. Large deals such as Hobby Lobby and the copious amount of shop space being absorbed at Fallon Gateway are just a few examples of emerging new businesses helping to elevate 2014 into an exceptional year in retail leasing.

The story of 2014, and a trend that will continue in 2015, is residential development. Land and redevelopment acquisitions for residential purposes dominated the market. From Taylor Morrison’s 210 detached and attached housing projects in downtown Livermore to Trumark Homes, 184-acre, 805 single family homes in Dublin; residential deals are larger and more aggressive than we have seen in years.

Editor’s note in regards to Downtown Danville vacancy: The jump of about four percent may seem alarming, but the numbers are skewed due to Danville Hotel redevelopment.
