Heritage Quarters- new student apartments in downtown Proximity to downtown jobs (in particular government, insurance and retail employers) CHALLENGES Perception of Downtown's quality of life deters many potential buyers Not an established residential location (lack of variety of product) Lack of appetite for dense residential development Lack of local serving retail Challenges associated with retrofitting older buildings or building new projects downtown Direct competition with lower-cost suburban homes Austin Avenue Flats- newly constructed condo building with many units leasing 4 02-12283.00

  • DOWNTOWN REPRESENTS 40% OF THE OCCUPIED OFFICE SPACE WITHIN THE MSA Office market in downtown Waco is small and comprised of mostly of insurance, finance, government and emerging telecom tenants.. Downtown office space rents from $6/ SF for older street front space to $18/SF for River Square high-rise space. The Roosevelt Office leasing above $18/SF is sparse, many companies will settle for lower quality Office space intermixed with retail centers along N. Valley Mills space under $18/sf.

  • Office Opportunity 22 02-12283.00
  • MODERATE DEMAND EXISTS WITHIN DOWNTOWN WACO FOR NEW LARGE-SCALE OFFICE SPACE Economy is relatively healthy in Waco but the fastest growing employment sectors, namely healthcare and education, are not users of conventional office space. Other large Waco employment sectors including manufacturing and trade, transportations, and utilities typically locate in warehouse and industrial space outside of the urban core To date, the corporate office market has had a price ceiling of approximately $18/sf, limiting the opportunity for new construction office projects The market in Waco has largely been driven by government, insurance, and finance tenants. The Roosevelt, at approximately 110,00 SF Large companies seeking build-to-suit opportunities (larger is a good example of a recently renovated floorplates, newer buildings, air & light quality, updated office building in Waco features) may be attracted to new construction or rehab opportunities in Downtown Waco 23 02-12283.00
  • OVER THE NEXT FIVE YEARS DOWNTOWN IS LIKELY TO ADD ABOUT 75,000 SF OF OFFICE SPACE Statistical demand analysis shows that downtown can support approximately 76,000 SF of additional office space by 2015 and 350,000 by 2025. The demand is likely to be split between rehab projects and build-to-suit opportunities. Additional office demand could be driven by the introduction of one or more large corporate users into the downtown market or through economic development efforts to recruit new tenants from an emerging office using sector such as information and technology. Example of rehabbed small office space (LoDo Denver, CO.) 02-12283.00
  • Residential – For-Sale Opportunity 25 02-12283.00
  • THE BULK OF DOWNTOWN RESIDENTIAL DEMAND EXISTS FOR PRODUCT OFFERED AT $250K & BELOW1 Demand for residential units primarily exists for units priced $150,000 and below for multifamily units and $250,000 for single-family homes. Young professional households and some students are typically more flexible and willing to buy into downtown neighborhoods before all residential amenities, including retail and green space have been put in place. Example of Midrise condominium project Younger households are most likely to seek out locations directly within entertainment districts as they are more likely to take full advantage of the entertainment benefits and more willing to put up with the challenges (parking, noise, event crowds) The target market audience (below age 44) currently makes up nearly 70% of the downtown area Initially, the empty-nester (age 45 and up) market will be shallow but has the potential to grow over time if the downtown is able to become a more established residential neighborhood and can connect successfully to existing cultural amenities.

  • NEIGHBORHOOD-SERVING RETAIL NEEDED TO PREVENT RETAIL DOLLARS FROM LEAKING OUT OF THE DOWNTOWN AREA Statistical demand1 dovetails with interview feedback which reveals the need for more service-oriented retail to support growing residential base, students and existing office tenants. Currently these market audiences are driving to Central Texas Marketplace or Valley Mills Drive for the majority of their retail needs.

  • Hotel Opportunity 38 02-12283.00
  • CONTINUED SUCCESS IN ATTRACTING EVENTS TO DOWNTOWN AREA WILL DRIVE HOTEL DEMAND Waco room night bookings for Events, Conventions, and Sports have increased from 411,000 in 1995 to 525,000 in 2007. This represents an annual growth rate of 2%.1 Visitor spending on hotels and motels has increased from $38 million in 2001 to $56 million in 2008. This represents an annual growth rate of 7%.1 According to the Office of the Governor occupancy in all Waco hotels was 61% in 2008, while occupancy in hotels with average daily rates above $75 was 63%. Currently the market for hotel rooms with average daily rates above $75 is undersupplied, with demand outpacing supply. 1 Waco Convention and Visitors Bureau 39 02-12283.00
  • DOWNTOWN CAN SUPPORT AN ADDITIONAL HOTEL BY 2014 The demand for the next five years is within the ‘upscale’ segment of the hotel market (hotel with average daily rates above $75). RCLCO estimates demand for a 214 upscale rooms by 2014. RCLCO recommends diversifying hotel offerings in Downtown by adding a least one non-chain hotel catering to Baylor families and offering classic ‘college town’ architecture and amenities. Examples of other college towns with classic hotels include Tuscaloosa, Alabama and Auburn, Alabama. The Auburn University Inn and Conference Center 40 02-12283.00
  • Summary of Overall Opportunity 41 02-12283.00
  • SUMMARY OF WACO TARGET MARKETS LAND USE TARGET MARKET Commercial Small-scale convenience retail tenants serving local households, downtown tourists, local employees, and Baylor students. Over long term the opportunity could evolve into larger scale Retail formats as the household density increases in the downtown area. Rehab spaces will primarily appeal to small tenants such as law-firms, engineering and other small professional service firms. Also an opportunity to pursue build-to-suit opportunities for large office Office tenants either as a headquarters location or anchor of a multi-tenant building. These large users could include insurance companies, business service firms, or government agencies. Targeted to a wide range of convention-goers, Baylor visitors, business travelers, tourists, and Hotel event visitors. The short term opportunity calls for more hotels in the upscale segment (ADR of $75+) and a non-conventional hotel offering targeting Baylor visitors. Residential Targeted primarily to younger professionals earning $45-$75k seeking the urban lifestyle. Mainly 1- For-Sale Multifamily and 2- person households seeking 1- and 2-bedroom units. Secondary target markets include empty-nesters and students. Targeted primarily to students seeking an alternative to on campus housing or lower quality rental options. The secondary market includes professionals earning $30-$55k seeking the urban lifestyle For-Rent Multifamily and proximity to employment. This group should include a large number of government and insurance sector employees. Targeted to younger professionals and empty-nesters earning $60-$100k seeking the privacy of Single-Family single-family residence with the convenience of an urban location. 42 02-12283.00

  • ASSUMPTIONS FOR FUTURE DEMAND SCENARIOS LAND USE ASSUMPTIONS Commercial The baseline scenario is based solely on the projected growth of each of the market audience groups (residents, students, tourists, employees, etc) while the aggressive scenario is based on Retail growth plus an additional 2% capture of expenditures. The baseline scenario has the downtown capturing its current ‘fair-share’ of office using employment growth which is currently at 40% of the MSA. The aggressive scenario shows the Office downtown area with a 50% capture rate, including the ability to locate 25% of healthcare and education jobs with the study area.
