Retail Outlook | JLL

In the second quarter, retail space under construction across the U.S. totaled 71.2 million square feet, down by 14.8 percent compared to the same time last year. Total retail deliveries also dropped to 11.6 million square feet, which represents a 42.6 percent decline. Developers are pulling back from construction in spite of rising rents. For the quarter, the average retail rent stood at $17.41 per square foot, up 5.4 percent compared to last year.

Producer Price Index | Associated General Contractors of America

Construction costs across the country rose by 6.2 percent in August. The increase worsens the financial squeeze on contractors, who are already facing labor shortages. In terms of supply costs, diesel fuel registered the highest increase at 33.9 percent, followed by steel mill products at 18.6 percent and aluminum mill shapes at 14 percent. For services, truck transportation of freight registered the highest increase at 7.2 percent. Read the report here.
