Insights on traditional influencers of distribution site selection and the changes going on relative to more human centric industrial building design.

As the role of healthcare in retail locations continues to rise, JLL uncovers the benefits for healthcare providers and retail centers.
Don’t get distracted by the headline jobs figure in February’s employment situation release. Neither the labor market not the economy is slowing that dramatically. February’s low figure looks largely like a reversal of a strong jobs gain in January and one data point does not make a trend. More importantly, look to wage gains that have now reached a cyclical high of 3.4 percent year over year. That falls just 20 basis points below last cycle’s high mark for wage gains. Recently, productivity growth has rebounded a bit. That helped mask to wage gains and helped prevent inflation from accelerating. But if productivity growth slows as we expect, continued wage growth could exert upward pressure on prices. Nonetheless, 2019 still looks favorable for CRE.
A new generation of consumers—and the ongoing war for talent—will change the landscape of the contact center industry in 2019. Compounded with increasing minimum wages, successful contact centers will need to find innovative solutions to optimize costs and maintain service excellence.
Economic growth for the fourth quarter fell slightly below our expectations, but growth for 2018 matched our forecast. Consumption drove the economy last year, but investment accelerated in the fourth quarter, a potentially hopeful sign for the future. The labor market continued to gain strength throughout the year, driving wages higher despite continued job growth and open positions reaching a record high at year’s end. We expect the economy to slow in 2019, but remain healthy, with growth above capacity. Against that backdrop CRE should continue to perform well, but increasingly it appears as if we are past the peak of the cycle.
