Cycles suggest next major High, maybe 2025-6

 

The 18-year Long Cycle in pictures - it is also reflected in the timing of new construction.

A short 1-2 year dip could be due soon - "the mid-Cycle correction" can start this year.

Philadelphia City Hall. Philly still has many classic buildings, reflecting its rich history. The William Penn statue had a special significance.

Designed to be the world's tallest building, it was surpassed during construction by the Washington Monument and the Eiffel Tower, though it was at completion the world's tallest habitable building. It was the first modern building (excluding the Eiffel Tower) to be the world's tallest and also was the first secular habitable building to have this record: all previous world's tallest buildings were religious structures...

One Liberty Place towers over City Hall

City Hall was the tallest in Philadelphia from 1901 until 1987, when it was surpassed by One Liberty Place ending an unspoken, gentlemen's agreement that limited the height of buildings in the city to be no higher than William Penn's hat atop City Hall.

CYCLES ?? assuming fixed 18 year cycle (theoretical)

1901 : Phil City Hall completed
1919
1937
1955
1973
1991 / 1989 : see chart above, One Liberty Place was completed in 1987, two years prior to the cycle peal
2007 : US Property cycle peaks

The Case

==========

Philadelphia is a Prime target for investors
+ One of America's most walkable cities, with a good public transport system.
+ key strategic location on the East Coast, and good universities and strong healthcare expertise.
+ much property is far more affordable than NYC, Boston, Washington; Yields are much better, like 2x, on average.
Now with steady job growth and a rising population and job growth, Rents and Property prices are rising again, hitting new highs. Gentrification is occurring along many of the transport links.

 

Longer Version

============

Why Philadelphia is a Prime target for investors
Philadelphia lost 1/3 of of its population from 1946-2000, but it retained a good public transport system.

Also; a key strategic location on the East Coast, and good universities and strong healthcare expertise.

By 2000, much property in the city was priced far below replacement value of maybe $125 per sq foot.

Beginning in about 2000, the population began growing again, at maybe 1% per annum. Jobs began to

increase, and young people who had gone to Universities in PH decided they wanted to stay in the city

and enjoy its urban culture, its transportation system and PH's extreme walkability. Prices were also far

below other East Coast cities such as NYC, Boston, and Washington, and so property was affordable,

even for some recent graduates in their twenties.

Now with rising population and job growth, Rents and Property prices are rising again, hitting new highs.

New home construction is occurring in many parts of the city, where prices are high enough to pay for the

land, and the price of new construction.  Gentrification is happening along many of the transport links.
