5 Best Office CBDs to Invest In

As recent data indicates, office buildings in Central Business Districts (CBDs) are just about the hottest investment right now. But not all CBDs are created equal—some may offer high occupancy rates and rising rents, but be very aggressively priced, while others may be affordable—for a reason. With the help of research from commercial real estate services firm CBRE, we have identified five office CBDs that seem to offer good value for your money right now, based on rising expected returns on cost for value-add properties. While the list is by no means exhaustive, it concentrates on cities where the expected return on cost currently averages at least 8.00 percent or higher and shows signs of increasing further.
