A recent Cushman & Wakefield report shows Atlanta is not just one of the hottest cities in the United States for investment, but is a global investment giant, sitting alongside cities like Hong Kong, Paris, Sydney, Shanghai and Munich.
Atlanta sits 10th on Cushman & Wakefield’s list of the Top 25 cities for Investment Volume, with more than $16 billion between the third quarter of 2014 and the second quarter of 2015. That places Atlanta just behind Dallas and ahead of Miami on the list. And, among that group, Atlanta had the second-largest investment growth from the previous 12 months, expanding at a 60.7% rate, behind only Miami’s 74.5%.
The biggest sectors for investment in Atlanta have been Multifamily and Industrial. The city had the third-most multifamily investment volume, behind only New York and Los Angeles, with $6.7 billion, up 69.2% from the previous year. And Atlanta had the eighth-most industrial investment, at $2.3 billion, with an impressive 59.9% growth.
On Economic Scale, Atlanta ranked 36th in the world, ahead of cities like Toronto, Madrid, Sydney, and Brussels, and 10th in the United States.
