Halfway through 2021, Utah’s overall economy is on the rebound and the state’s commercial real estate and construction industry is soaring, with a few exceptions.
The past year has caused businesses to rapidly adapt and consider new issues such as working from home and the accelerated shift from in-person shopping to online shopping as part of a sound commercial real estate strategy. And, while these issues have a put a strain on retail and office space, they have increased demand for other sectors, including warehouse and multifamily space.
