Kelowna office 2012 q3

  1. 1. Q3 2012 | OFFICECOLLIERS INTERNATIONAL | MARKET REPORTKELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA Canadian Market Overview Canadian economic performance remains in growth mode, albeit moderate in the East and strong in the West. The divide between East and West is attributable to commodities driving the west and the lack of a similar catalyst in the East. Manufacturing in the east is weighed down by slow growth in the U.S.; an upside surprise is the return of Auto sector to near pre-recession levels. The outlook for commercial real estate is stable, with the exception of a few higher growth centers in the west. Employment growth will sustain the office market and growth in retail sales, along with new U.S. retailers will underpin demand for retail and distribution facilities. Manageable new supply of both office and industrial property should avert supply driven vacancy challenges. Overall commercial property looks well positioned to close out a solid year in 2012 and continue on the same path through 2013. B.C. & CENTRAL OKANAGAN ECONOMIC OVERVIEW Kelowna is the largest city in Southern B.C. with a population of 117,300 and a total population of approximately 180,000 in the Central Okanagan. Diversification remains the Central Okanagan’s greatest economic strength. Agriculture, finance, manufacturing, professional services and technology are all important industries. BC MARKET: Colliers has five offices in British Columbia: Vancouver and Surrey are both located The top three occupations (sales & service / trades, transport, equipment operators / in the Lower Mainland; Kelowna is located in the business & finance) in the Central Okanagan account for 60% of total employment. Okanagan Valley and Nanaimo and Victoria are on Vancouver Island. Economic growth in the Central Okanagan had been strong up until 2008 when economic conditions changed globally. According to the 2010 B.C. Financial and Economic Review published by the provincial government, B.C.’s economic growth in 2008 was modest at 0.2% but contracted in 2009 at -2.3%. The Ministry of Finance and BC Economic MARKET INDICATORS Forecast Council indicated that 2010 saw a 3.3% growth, but 2011 growth was closer to 2.2% and 2012 is forecast to grow between 2.0% and 2.2%.
