Life sciences real estate: The next sound investment in Vancouver

April 30, 2021 / by Tony Quattrin / Blog / 0 Comments

Increased capital stores, low interest rates, and record stock market valuations have fuelled new interest in commercial real estate investment opportunities.

Traditionally, investors have often been attracted to Vancouver’s supply-constrained, high-demand office and multifamily markets for their stable occupancy, steady rental rate growth and exceptional liquidity.

However, limited supply and ever-compressing yields in traditional asset classes have spawned increased interest in opportunities outside the conventional office space.

Since the onset of the pandemic, several asset classes have experienced significant gains. A notable and perhaps unexpected shift was the life sciences investment sector, where we are now witnessing firsthand the development of this relatively new asset class growing in both availability and demand.
