The Smart city market is projected to reach $400 billion by 2020. The type of data analysis that is made possible through Smart cities will become invaluable for identifying prospective investments, new or re-development, attracting tenants, and building better infrastructure.
One tech leader, Cisco, is pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into Smart city projects all over the world including in San Jose and Chicago. Electricity giant GE (General Electric) has joined with city governments in San Diego, CA and Jacksonville, FL to test pilot Smart cities there. Will this trend continue and what do these Smart city projects mean for our future?
Experts predict that Smart cities will become a nearly half a trillion dollar industry in less than two years. There are plans to unveil about 600 Smart cities globally over these next two years. In less than a decade Smart cities are estimated to account for 60% of the global GDP from these 600 cities alone.
In the future, All CRE properties will have to be built to connect with both people and the city itself. Real-time data will be essential in site planning, development, investment, and leasing. Being able to connect to a wide range of devices and technologies that are continuing to evolve and change will be an ongoing challenge for everyone in CRE.
Our future is going to be vastly more tech enhanced than it is right now – amazing when you consider how tech enhanced everything already is. But what Smart cities are expected to do is go beyond providing more convenience to citizens and consumers. They are going to be more efficient, use less energy, and control everything from street lights to the city’s Smart electrical grid.
Imagine a bus stop that tells you when the next bus is coming in real-time and will re-route you automatically without you interacting at all. Your mobile device will announce it like the weather when you pass a bus stop’s beacons and sensors.
No longer will pedestrians have to stand and wait for five minutes to cross a busy street. Sensors will detect pedestrians and will change traffic lights in real-time for optimal traffic flow. Uber apps will send driverless cars when you step into an Uber pickup zone with your mobile device – all because of beacons and sensors in street lights, traffic lights, crosswalks, and city cameras.
Predictive analysis today is child’s play compared to what we expect in the future. Imagine how much useful data will be collected when Smart cities are also filled with Smart buildings that can communicate with city assets as well as consumers, employees, and citizens.
When it comes to site planning, the types of real-time and historic data that can be collected based on actual foot traffic over long periods of time will be insanely invaluable in the future. Seattle is already a Smart city and is experimenting with and testing new ways of interacting with its citizens through Smart technology to make life better.

"Ryan McGreevy very professionally handled the sale of this property and I was very satisfied with his work. I look forward to doing future business together."
"Each and every prospective deal is always handled in a professional and compelling manner. Furthermore, the attention to detail and analysis provided with each RFP has greatly helped the partners in their decision making."
"The NAI Ohio Equities Industrial Team has done an excellent job for us. After purchasing Southeast Industrial Park our goal has been to sell the buildings individually. Their team has clearly communicated our objectives to the brokerage community and end users. Through an aggressive marketing effort they have been able to sell 13 of the 18 buildings in the park. We appreciate their determined and honest approach to business."
"Working with Matt Gregory and Andy Dutcher was fantastic. They were both very energetic and knowledgeable, responding quickly to our various needs and questions. Both are very personable, understood our needs, and strongly supported our effort to start a social enterprise. I would highly recommend them both."
"Joe Menninger and Philip Bird were a delight to work with. They completely understood our parameters and the necessity to sell our real estate, while continuing to maintain our operations in the space during and after the sale."
"We have grown significantly in the past few years and had to lease space at three separate locations in order to accomodate the needs of the agency. I was delighted with the personal commitment made by both Peter Merkle and Matt Gregory to find us a property that met all of Alvis House's needs. The time and effort they have put forth has been invaluable."

Starting the business was the hard part. Now you are looking for space but how do you find the right commercial building? You need a good commercial real estate brokerage but each brokerage and broker is different. How do you choose the one that’s right for you? Here are 4 things to look for:
#1: A broker that specializes in the type of commercial property that you need.
One of the first things you’ll come up against when you start looking for commercial property is zoning. You may think that your office building could fit perfectly in a vacant restaurant or retail shop but is it zoned for that? Businesses that will use a building for industrial use have to find a property that is zoned for industrial use just like any other type of commercial business.

WeWork started the concept but it has only grown and expanded from there. The co-working or flex space model which began in NYC is fast becoming the new Uber of commercial office space. With large corporations abandoning the traditional work model for more flex space, it is changing how landlords attract and retain tenants.
Recently, landlords are discovering that they can use their building’s flex space as an amenity to attract tenants. Flex space isn’t just a coworking hub: it is bookable meeting space, conference rooms, event space, and multimedia rooms. Tenants are also demanding more from flex space operators. Here are 5 reasons why landlords should view flexible space as an amenity for their tenants.

When asked about sustainability, most people immediately think of energy consumption and savings. However, energy is just one small component of sustainability. Sustainability is an overarching spectrum — and while it’s true that focusing on the regulation of energy is a necessary piece of the puzzle, as it impacts the overall operating cost on a daily basis, it’s important to remember to pay attention to the other pieces, as well.
Let’s take a closer look at sustainability as it pertains to CRE and these 4 trends to keep your eye on.
