Calgary’s long-suffering retail sector may get a lift this year from the cannabis industry, according to Barclay Street Real Estate. The city’s downtown retail vacancy rate is down to 10 per cent, but it could fall to single-digits if the push for marijuana retail outlets materializes into bricks and mortar, the real estate agency said.
The second quarter of 2018 marked the end of five consecutive quarters of declining vacancy in Calgary’s industrial real estate market, says a new report by Barclay Street Real Estate. There was a slight uptick of 0.01 per cent to 5.67 per cent overall, says the report
A Barclay Street Real Estate report says vacancy rates are declining downtown and in the Beltline as potential retailers prepare to open marijuana stores. The retail real estate market warmed up in Calgary’s Central Business District (CBD) in the second quarter of the year. And the legalization of cannabis is expected to heat things up even further in the near future. A mid-year retail report by Barclay Street Real Estate says CBD vacancy decreased to 10 per cent in the second quarter from 11 per cent in the first quarter.
Calgary’s retail real estate market continues to grapple with a flood of vacant Sears space throughout the city, says a new report by Barclay Street Real Estate.
