LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 05/29/14 -- Cushman & Wakefield | Commerce (www.comre.com) released its Q1, 2014 Marketbeat Snapshot reports outlining the state of commercial real estate in the Las Vegas region.
"The industrial market in Las Vegas dominated all other segments in the area," said Mike Dunn, Branch Broker of the Las Vegas C&W | Commerce office. "Q1 14 was the ninth consecutive quarter of positive absorption in the industrial market, and with tightening supply, lease rates are expected to rise. The office market was off to a slow start in Q1, but with rebounding job growth, the office segment is expected to strengthen throughout the year. With dropping vacancy numbers, the retail market had a strong quarter, which denotes a positive outlook for the months ahead."
The following are report highlights from the Cushman & Wakefield | Commerce reports, which can be accessed (along with historical reports) at http://www.comre.com/research.
The industrial market again outperformed all other product types as the overall vacancy rate dropped by 2.9 pps on a year-over-year basis to 12.0 percent. As expected, due to tightening in this market, lease rates increased by 6.0 percent and will continue to tick upward throughout the year, particularly in the spaces with more than 100,000 sf. Shortage of big-box distribution/manufacturing buildings are in short supply, which will lead to new spec development getting underway later in 2014.
The retail market continued to strengthen as the overall vacancy rate dropped by 1.1 pps on a year-over-year basis to 9.0 percent. This represents a five-year low in vacancy rates. Although vacancy continued to decline, overall average asking lease rates have remained flat over the past two years; however, looking forward, rates will begin to trend upward over 2014 as newer, better product is added or renovated as vacancy rates continue to decline.
Lease rates and leasing activity were both up slightly during the first quarter and several office lease deals are currently underway that will likely close during the second quarter. Even though most leasing activity was in the suburbs, the Central Business District (CBD) continued to outperform the suburban markets with a vacancy rate of 18.7 percent while the suburban submarkets reported a vacancy rate of 29.2 percent. Also, distressed real estate has burdened the Las Vegas market over the last several years, but with an improving market and new owners in place, all unfinished office building properties have moved forward on completing construction and leasing.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
