[Bisnow] What Recession? Construction In The San Fernando Valley Chugs Along

By Alberto Mirabal | September 27, 2019

According to a recent article on Bisnow, construction in the San Fernando Valley keeps chugging along despite talks of an impending recession. The gross domestic product of the San Fernando Valley has increased by 4.3% annually between 2014 and 2018, dominating Ventura, Los Angeles and Orange County. That growth is supported by projects ranging across asset classes, from new hotels, office buildings and retail spaces to renovations at healthcare centers, schools and museums.

Additionally, the article states, “year-over-year job growth in the Valley hit 2.4% in 2018. But in construction, employment ballooned by 6.7%.”

Alberto Mirabal, AVP within Energy and Engineering specializing in commercial construction and development shares his thoughts on the construction boom in the San Fernando Valley.

“As big cities continue to become too expensive for young professionals and new families, people are fleeing into suburban areas such as the San Fernando Valley. This trend has created the need for new hotels, office buildings, healthcare centers and schools in the area. Additionally, the 2028 Summer Olympics that will be hosted in Los Angeles have driven the need for infrastructure updates and new commercial construction throughout LA County despite concerns of an upcoming economic downturn.”
