The commercial real estate market in Atlanta is booming. As the capital and most populous city in Georgia, Atlanta is home to 5.8 million residents and some of the most dynamic and complex commercial real estate in the country, along with historic communities and charming residential neighborhoods.

The Atlanta metropolitan region witnessed a 1.6 percent growth in population between 2015 and 2016, making it the fourth largest region in the country for the number of new residents, according to Census Bureau data. The rate of growth is expected to continue to rise. By the time Atlanta’s oldest millennials near retirement, the metro’s population is expected to soar to more than 9 million people, making Atlanta the nation’s sixth largest metro, trailing only New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston and Chicago, according to the U.S. Conference of Mayors.

Atlanta’s explosive growth is good news for commercial real estate. Atlanta is in the top spot in the country for net industrial space absorbed, according to Colliers International. An increase in the demand for commercial real estate results in reduced vacancies. Consumer products, logistics companies, and e-commerce companies remain the most active tenants in the market, and over 5 million square feet of positive absorption is projected to occur in Atlanta next quarter, according to Colliers International. Looking toward the future, the outlook for commercial real estate activity in Atlanta looks very promising.
