An age-restricted community called Victory, within Buckeye’s well-known Verrado development, will open in mid-2014. Victory is the first of several communities for wealthier Baby Boomers that Scottsdale-based DMB Associates plans to open across the West over the next decade.

Metro Phoenix’s homebuilding recovery won’t ramp up again until 2015, and then it will play out mostly in the West Valley.

The latest forecast comes from some of the region’s top developers, builders, investors, brokers and analysts at the Scottsdale-based Land Advisors Organization’s annual real-estate conference on Wednesday.

New-home permits will climb as high as 18,000 next year, and the number of homes built in the southeast Valley will decline, Land Advisors CEO Greg Vogel told the crowd of more than 500 people at the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Hotel.

“Fifty-eight percent of the finished lots are now in the West Valley,” he said.

West Valley Industrial growth bucks national trends

A new industrial park on 267 acres of Goodyear cotton fields and a large new Surprise manufacturer offer evidence that the West Valley continues to attract employers despite national economic uncertainties.
As the market for large buildings sputtered in recent months, developers are focusing on smaller markets to find business tenants looking for buildings of 50,000 to 200,000 square feet, economists said.
That’s where Lincoln Property Co. turned when executives decided to recruit smaller to mid-size companies to move into the future Goodyear Airpark, southwest of Litchfield road and Arizona 85.
David Krumwiede, the company’s executive vice president, said that those regional companies are in better economic shape.
“They have come out of the Great Recession and are in recovery mode,” he said. “Tenants said their competitors are gone and they need to expand or push their business forward now.”
