Four commercial real estate lawyers interviewed by Texas Lawyer point to strong housing and development demand as businesses expand their local operations and hiring plans.


With companies such as Facebook, Apple, Tesla, Samsung and Oracle either relocating to or expanding their operations in Austin, all sectors of residential real estate  in Austin are in high demand.

Multifamily demand will outpace supply while builders of condos, townhouses, apartments and single-family homes try to keep up.  Developers will continue acquiring more land to build more subdivisions of both rental and workforce/affordable housing.

On the commercial side, mixed-use buildings will dominate and more industrial warehouse development will populate highway corridors.

Multifamily housing will continue to dominate residential building in 2022 while occupancy rates in existing housing supply in Houston will remain high.

Houston’s central business district is another story, however.  Office vacancies remain high, though central district shops and restaurants appear to be in good shape.


Both single-family and multifamily development along with construction in Dallas had record-breaking years during 2021.  Local experts expect 2022 to be a continuation of these two trends.

The four real estate attorneys voiced in this Texas Lawyer article anticipate that Dallas-Fort Worth urban centers outside of the downtown center will continue to thrive in 2022.  They also predict that the industrial sector will be active across North Texas during 2022.

Fort Worth

Fort Worth is now considered to be a landlord’s market.  Leases are outpacing expectations in all aspects of commercial space while biotech, warehouse and e-commerce facilities dominate industrial space.

Class A office building sales prices are setting new records and corporate relocations are spurring new construction of office campuses just beyond Fort Worth’s downtown.

San Antonio

Seemingly, San Antonio has an endless supply of new residents moving into single-family and multifamily developments.  Multifamily construction growth is expected to outpace the nation in 2022.
