Why This Matters:

Los Angeles multifamily development has been incredibly robust over the last five years. 2017 delivered over 8,000 new units to the market. How much longer can this boom continue? Downtown has the most projects under construction, but with all this activity, there is some concern of oversupply in this evolving submarket. Westside’s soaring rents continue to encourage new development, as investors are looking to satisfy the demand provided by the young affluent workers in the region. The rampant competition has lead to an amenities race among developers. Everyone is pushing the limits on modern living to beat out neighboring communities! Even with all the activity, LA is still extremely undersupplied. This year the city was designated as the countries least affordable city in relation to average income. Rent growth is outpacing income growth in a big way. This coupled with density debates, elaborate NIMBY requirements, and murky affordable housing parameters, create uncertainty.
