.PTUSFNBJODMVFMFTTPO"TJBOJNQPSUBODF hina has more than three billion people. British Columbia has more than three million people. The magnitude of scale is staggering and goes a long way to explain that what British Columbia sees as enormous economic opportunities is a mere pittance for the Asian giant. And surprisingly, few B.C. residents are even clued into Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s importance to the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic future. This was brought home during a recent Business Council of British Columbia conference on Asian business, which rightly pushed for more local businesspeople to take advantage of our envious location for Asian trade. Yet a study done for the Asia Pacific Foundation found that only half of British Columbians agree that the province is even part of the Pacific Rim and 60 per cent do not want Asian studies or language in their schools. This in spite of the fact that Asia will account for half of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s GDP by 2030 and that trade with China is the only reason B.C. was able to pull out of the global recession. Another telling point on how far B.C. has to go to even tug at Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic coat-

tails was in an address by Hank Ketchum, president and CEO of West Fraser Timber Co. Ltd. Ketchum told the conference that in the first five months of this year, total B.C. softwood exports to Asia â&#x20AC;&#x201C; $776 million â&#x20AC;&#x201C; surpassed those to the United States â&#x20AC;&#x201C; $661 million â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for the first time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The emergence of the Chinese market has saved roughly 6,000 British Columbia jobs,â&#x20AC;? Ketchum said. But while most of us think that our prized wood is being used to build houses in China, that is not the case. The Chinese build out of concrete and steel, not wood. According to Ketchum, â&#x20AC;&#x153;[B.C.] lumber is currently used for low-value applications, like concrete forming, not home building.â&#x20AC;? China will start about 14 million homes this year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what all of North America builds in 15 years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but only about 20,000 Chinese houses will be built from wood, most of these in exclusive, Western-style enclaves. And it may be just luck that we are selling any lumber to China: a main reason is that Russia has slapped a 25 per cent tax on lumber exports from its vast forests. Take that away and Canada could be hard-pressed to match Russian competition. But Canada has been named an

â&#x20AC;&#x153;approved destinationâ&#x20AC;? by Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s government. Wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that lead to a rush of Chinese tourists? Not really, according to Rick Antonson, president and CEO of Tourism Vancouver. Canada was the 134th country to receive the approved destination designation, hardly top of mind. Also, of the nine million visitors to Vancouver every year, only one million come from Asia, and this includes business and trade trips as well as tourists. So what is the bottom line? B.C. business and residents have to wake up to the fact that Vancouver is the largest Asian city outside of Asia and if we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take advantage of our strengths and sell harder into China we will be left far, far behind.

FEATURE But NAIOP survey finds industrial development charges spiked in Vancouver, New Westminster

$JWJDDPTUDVUUFSTIPOPVSFE WI STAFF WESTERN INVESTOR ith the release of the 12th annual Metro Vancouver regional development cost survey, and the sixth to focus on industrial buildings, developers have honoured those municipalities that held the line on civic charges and worked progressively with the development community over the past two years.

It is a short list. The winners of what will be now known as the Name Awards (NAIOP Award for Municipal Excellence) were presented by NAIOP/ Commercial Real Estate Development Group in October and went to just four of the 20 municipalities surveyed in NAIOPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2011 Commercial Development Report Card. The Name winners are: â&#x20AC;˘ The cities of North Vancouver and Chilliwack, twin winners for â&#x20AC;&#x153;most improved municipality.â&#x20AC;? Both of these cities achieved the most improvement compared with previous survey results and recorded an overall drop of 6 per cent in costs from the industrial survey done in 2009, according to NAIOP. â&#x20AC;˘ The City of Delta won the award for â&#x20AC;&#x153;most fiscally responsible.â&#x20AC;? The Fraser Valley community has managed to limit cost increases for industrial development to just above the average rate of inflation over the past decade. â&#x20AC;˘ The City of Abbotsford took the award for â&#x20AC;&#x153;most business friendlyâ&#x20AC;? municipality. Abbotsford has implemented five-year staggered tax incentives for both commercial and industrial development. According to survey author Graeme Silvera, a vice-president at the Plenary Group, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax incentives include a 100 per cent property tax break, or about $106,000, in the first year a new building is complete. Based on the survey model, an industrial developer could see as much as a half-million-dollar tax break in Abbotsford.

A 100,000-square-foot industrial building, such as this example in Burnaby, was used as the baseline for the 2011 regional development cost survey.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is significant, and it has encouraged new investment,â&#x20AC;? he said. After these awards, however, the bottom line in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report card was a B or perhaps C or even F grade for many other municipalities. Among the failing graders are New Westminster and Vancouver, both of which have jacked up development cost charges (DCCs) sharply for industrial projects since the last industrial cost survey was done in 2009. The parameter of the survey is a 100,000-square-foot industrial building, such as a distribution warehouse, on 5.5 acres of land. The development also includes 15,000 square feet of office space within the warehouse. Each of the 20 municipalities received a development proposal where rezoning, subdivision, development permit and a building permit would be required. The municipalities then provided a report on costs and approval times, according to their usual standards.

compared with just $19,166 in the 2009 survey. In Vancouver, the development charges are $417,000, nearly double the 2009 cost of $240,000. In Vancouver, this works out to more than $4 per square foot before the foundation is even poured. This, developers say, is passed directly onto the final lease, which in turn drives up the cost of doing business for tenants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is surprising to see costs go up that much, given that we have been in a fairly turbulent time for the market,â&#x20AC;? Silvera said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most people are trying to control costs to make it better for business.â&#x20AC;? Silvera noted that development cost charges, historically and legally under provincial regulations, are to provide the necessary new infrastructure, such as roads, sewers and water lines for new development. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you get mature municipalities, like New West and Vancouver with those kinds of increases, the DCCS are obviously being used for more than just accommodating growth. In %$$GFFT [these cities] the streets are already in, the sewIn New Westminster, the development cost ers are in, the water lines are in. They are not charges for such a project are $112,000, extending that infrastructure to any new devel-

opments. It is mostly infill projects,â&#x20AC;? he said. Almost half of the municipalities surveyed reported increases in development cost charges, which are just part of the overall fees that a developer can face. Total civic fees ranged from a low of $169,000 in Burnaby to more than $1 million in Richmond. More unnerving for some developers is what NAIOP calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;the excessiveâ&#x20AC;? use of letters of credit and other forms of security demanded before a project is approved. Four municipalities now require bonds of $750,000 or more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is becoming more an issue in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s credit-restricted environment,â&#x20AC;? Silvera noted in the survey. The survey also looked at the time it takes from when a development proposal is submitted to when a building permit is approved and shovels can go into the ground. The majority of municipalities had no change in their timing, but only two, the City of North Vancouver and Richmond, had an actual reduction in the time it takes to get a project underway. Still, even with an 11 per cent decrease, North Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s timeline is still 240 days, which ranked it among the slowest in the region. Abbotsford and Chilliwack provide the speediest service, taking an average of 90 days to turn an application into a building permit.

(SFFOGFFT

There are also new green fees and regulations in some municipalities. Over half of municipalities now have some form of green incentive or requirement, compared with six, two years ago. Most are voluntary and include a green checklist for developers, which are included in the project application to city council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a kind of moral persuasion, â&#x20AC;&#x153; Silvera said. = NAIOP members appear realistic in the impact of their annual cost survey, which remains the only such study in Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if the survey has modified municipal costs,â&#x20AC;? Silvera said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In industrial, [municipalities] have a captive market.â&#x20AC;?â&#x2014;&#x2020;

REGIONAL ROUNDUP Vancouver and developers prepare to transform last great waterfront real estate

in the next 15 years and ones that currently abut the viaducts. City staff along with Halcrow Consulting are in the first phase of studying the impact of removing the viaducts, which are remnants of a long-rejected plan to have a highway connect eastern suburbs to Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downtown core. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one approaching this land now would volunteer to put an elevated expressway above what is already a big road infrastructure at Expo Boulevard,â&#x20AC;? said councillor Geoff Meggs, who supports removing the viaducts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We could probably do something immediately by removing the two blocks [of the viaducts] on either side of Main Street. That would be helpful for Chinatown and good for Strathcona, too.â&#x20AC;? The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s viaduct removal review has thus far centred on three options: â&#x20AC;˘ removing 20 per cent of the viaductsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; east end so they could flow into Main Street (within a couple of years); â&#x20AC;˘ removing one of the viaducts and turning the remaining structure into a two-way road (within 15 years); and â&#x20AC;˘ removing both viaducts and reconfiguring the road system to allow Pacific Boulevard (ABOVE) Northeast False Creek has developers lining up and city officials puzzling over to connect with Georgia Street and Expo what to do with Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last great piece of downtown waterfront.

All eyes are focused on the Eastern Core, which ultimately stretches from Northeast False Creek to Clark Drive and includes the northern False Creek shoreline. But first, the future for two stretches of an old freeway has to be considered. Removing the Georgia and Dunsmuir viaducts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; remnants of a planned freeway that was never finished â&#x20AC;&#x201C; would release development land valued at about $150 million, according to city estimates. The plan could pump badly needed cash into City of Vancouver coffers and create a revitalized high-end neighbourhood that could include a beach at the east end of False Creek. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to open up our thinking,â&#x20AC;? said Bing Thom Architects principal Bing Thom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe the whole east end of False Creek should be a beach. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no beach in the east side of the city that faces south. Crab Park Beach and New Brighton Beach face north.â&#x20AC;? Concord Pacificâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to build a park on its land along False Creekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s northeast corner is part of a negotiated agreement with the city in exchange for Concord developing residential towers on nearby land. Not including the BC Pavilion Corp. (PavCo) land adjacent to BC Place where Paragon Gaming had proposed building hotel towers and a casino, 11 towers are in various stages of planning for the northeast False Creek lands. Concord Pacific is expected to propose additional towers on land that it owns in the

The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s traffic engineer Jerry Dobrovolny is equally confident about removing the viaducts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can mitigate traffic,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no reason they have to stay.â&#x20AC;? Thom said public support is key to advancing the timeline and the best way to do that would be to develop a business case for the removal. He estimated that removal of both viaducts and reconfiguring roads, sewers and other infrastructure could cost Vancouver $100 million. However, the city would free up 10 acres of developable land underneath the viaducts. The property would need soil remediation, but it could still be sold for at least $150 million, according to real estate analysts. Thom said wresting community benefits from developers that propose towers on the land would provide the city with another $150 million. Exact numbers in the business case for the viaductsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; removal would depend on: â&#x20AC;˘ how much density the city allows on the underlying land; â&#x20AC;˘ what zoning it would give proposed developments; and â&#x20AC;˘ how much money developers could get from selling units in the towers. But not everyone favours the viaductsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; removal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Removing both viaducts would absolutely

have an impact on traffic,â&#x20AC;? said Vancouver Taxi Association co-ordinator Armrik Mahil. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are a major thoroughfare for the east side of Vancouver. You already have traffic on Expo Boulevard. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at two to three times the traffic.â&#x20AC;? Mahil, who is also president of Black Top & Checker Cabs Ltd., fears the resulting congestion would increase area taxi fares, which would discourage potential clients. He added that people who opted to take public transit would be delayed by the small Vancouver SkyTrain stations and the systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s small passenger loads compared with counterparts in larger cities such as London, England, where the underground handles a much higher percentage of passenger trips in the downtown core. Still, the potential of opening tens of millions of dollars worth of urban real estate for new homes and businesses â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and taxes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; may have already doomed the viaducts.â&#x2014;&#x2020;

s part of the City of Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ongoing review of the Georgia and Dunsmuir viaducts and strategic planning for the Eastern Core, the city is calling for public and professional input as part of ideas competition that ends this month. The competition is divided into two entry streams â&#x20AC;&#x201C; free and fee. Both streams will accept submissions in three categories: Big Picture, Viaducts and Wild Card. The free stream is directed toward people from any background who may enter without an entry fee. The winners from this stream will also have their ideas profiled at a public forum. The fee stream, while open to anyone who wishes to enter, is directed at design professionals such as architects, engineers and urban planners and their skill sets. This stream requires an entry fee and will include a monetary award for winning entrants. An independent design jury will choose the winners in both streams. A Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice Award will also be given in each category with the winning entries decided by public online voting. Deadline for submissions is November 4, 2011, with winners named in December. To enter or for more information, visit www. vancouver.ca/reconnect.

WESTERN INVESTOR NOVEMBER 2011 www.westerninvestor.com

The recent surge in foreclosure filings is primarily attributed to the Bank of America, the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s single largest lender, which is moving forward on troubled mortgages where paperwork was found to have been improperly â&#x20AC;&#x153;robo-signedâ&#x20AC;? by bank employees, ForeclosureRadar CEO Sean Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Toole said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible that they are clearing up files that were set aside during review of the robosigning,â&#x20AC;? the foreclosure analyst said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the case, I think this will be a one-month blip of cleanup.â&#x20AC;? The rental vacancy rate in Las Vegas has fallen to the 9 per cent range, down sharply from a year ago, according to California-based Marcus & Millichap, which says a gradual recovery of the gaming industry should lower vacancy rates and increase rents in 2011. The firm says Las Vegas employers should add about 14,000 workers, a 2 per cent increase. Visitors should increase by 2 per cent this year, improving the gaming and hospitality industries that drive apartment operations, said Hessam Nadji, managing director. Lydia Clarke, Las Vegas-based president of Investment Properties International, specializes in buying real estate through foreclosure auctions in the U.S. gaming capital, fixing them up and either flipping them or renting them out. Clarke said most of her clients are western Canadians. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Simply put, Las Vegas home values have dropped by more than half of what they were bought for five or six years ago,â&#x20AC;? Clarke said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many people who purchased or refinanced now owe much more on their homes than they are worth.â&#x20AC;? Some distressed buyers will try for a short sale, where the lender forgives the difference in the sale price and the mortgage owing to get some of the money back. Other owners simply walk away and let the home fall into foreclosure. About 1,000 homes are put to auction every day in Vegas, Clarke said, noting that the city is leading the U.S. in both foreclosures and highest volume of homes sold.

ABOVE AND RIGHT: B.C. marketing company is pitching Washington State lakefront cottages starting at US$249,000.

Clarke said Canadians could make money through buy-and-hold or through positive cash flow as a rental. As an example she used a Las Vegas three bedroom in a good neighbourhood that she bought at auction for US$110,000. The house was given a quick makeover and rented out for US$1,350 per month. Clarke also has detached houses listed in Las Vegas for US$78,000 and townhomes from US$58,000. A Canadian recreational investor can buy Canadians.

Lyle expects 90 per cent of the cottages to be sold to Canadians when the project begins sales at the end of October, noting that Wildwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lakefront prices are less than half of what a cottage would cost in popular B.C. areas like Cultus Lake or the Okanagan. Mike Kent, broker-owner of Windermere Real Estate Whatcom Inc., said the Wildwood cottages would likely sell well to Canadians seeking a â&#x20AC;&#x153;lock-and-leaveâ&#x20AC;? vacation home, though he cautioned there is little chance of upside equity in the current U.S. market. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a great lifestyle choice,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is not a great real estate investment.â&#x20AC;?â&#x2014;&#x2020;

ith our long cold winters, it is no surprise that so many Canadians are flocking to the Sunbelt U.S. states in search of warmth, and just maybe an investment that will pay dividends.

I am one of them. I have used my experience, living part time in the U.S., to help other Canadians buy their dream home or investment property south of the border â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the right way. As a financial planner, my most successful clients always owned between two and four properties, in addition to their investment portfolio. They had their share of bonds and mostly held good companies that paid a dividend, like Canadian bank stocks or big oil. But in real estate, what made them so successful is that they bought affordable homes that would generate positive rental cash flow. Clients who paid attention to this advice have been able to ride the steady decline in the U.S. market quite comfortably. In fact many of our clients have actually made money already with U.S. properties that are now more rare and difficult to find, particularly in Phoenix, Arizona, where I specialize. When you stick to affordable houses in good neighbourhoods â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the kind where there are decent schools, and have a good infrastructure in place, close to a highway, and good shopping â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you will ride out the bumps because there will always be demand for your property. In Phoenix, this is important because the city has a crazy amount of urban sprawl and some ghost towns [unfinished subdivisions] in the outer areas. Be very cautious of these areas.

It costs about the same to ship lumber from B.C. to China as to most U.S. markets, and Ketchum said improved port and rail services in China could open the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expansive interior to more B.C. softwood by next year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is a market weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not reaching yet,â&#x20AC;? he said.

B.C. wood valued low in China Victoria weak A for hotels recent Business Council of British Columbia conference on Asian opportunities revealed that, while exports of B.C. softwood to Asia are soaring, the wood is often seen as low value in the China market. Hank Ketchum, president and CEO of West Fraser Timber Co. Ltd., told conference delegates that West Fraser shipments of B.C. timber to China were up 100 per cent in the past five years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from near zero â&#x20AC;&#x201C; while exports to the U.S. had fallen 40 per cent the same period. Today, he said more than onethird of West Fraserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lumber and plywood production was being shipped to China. In the first five months of this year, total B.C. softwood exports to Asia â&#x20AC;&#x201C; $776 million â&#x20AC;&#x201C; surpassed those to the United States â&#x20AC;&#x201C; $661 million â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for the first time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The emergence of the Chinese market has saved roughly 6,000 British Columbia jobs,â&#x20AC;? Ketchum said. But it could be so much more, he added. China is building 12 to 14 million homes per year, but only about 20,000 of these are made out of wood, or about the same number of annual housing starts in British Columbia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Chinese build out of concrete and steel, not woodâ&#x20AC;? Ketchum said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our lumber is currently used for low-value applications, like concrete forming, not home building.â&#x20AC;? Ketchum said B.C. has had some good luck combined with hard work in increasing Asian lumber exports. Part of the luck was the hefty 25 per cent export tax that Russia has slapped on its lumber shipments to China, and the fact that B.C. has a huge surplus of softwood due to the collapse of the U.S. housing market. The hard work is seen in B.C. government investments in promoting B.C. lumber to architects and builders in China, led by a 60-person trade office in Beijing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to move up the value chain,â&#x20AC;? Ketchum said.

C Place stadium in downtown Vancouver, which recently re-opened after a $563 million retrofit, could prove the catalyst for downtown redevelopment. A site adjacent to the stadium was earmarked for a giant new Paragon casino project, but that has apparently been shelved after New roof now covers BC Place stadium. public complaints. Vancouver City Council had approved the movement of Paragonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existing Edgewa ter Casino to the stadium site, but rejected expansion plans for up to 1,500 slot machines and 150 gaming tables. The city also placed a moratorium on the expansion of gaming in the city. Still, Paragon could proceed with a smaller casino. Meanwhile, Vancouver-based Aquilini Investment Group has unveiled plans for up to three mixed-use office-retail-residential towers, including a 22-storey, 236,000-square-foot office building, close to the stadium. Aquilini has also proposed a new $22 million community centre and ice rink near the stadium and Rogers Arena. A study from Avison Young commercial realtors, however, shows the Aquilini office tower proposal could face fierce competition by the time it completes in 2014. The study notes that Oxford Properties will finish 270,000 square feet in a new building on West Hastings by 2014, and that a further 130,000 square feet of new office space has already been completed downtown this year. In the planning stages is a 365,000-square-foot officetower by Bentall Kennedy on Thurlow Street, and two other office towers totalling 700,000 square feet on Burrard Street and Richards Street in the downtown area, all of which could come on stream within four to five years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Developers are grappling with whether or not to proceed on a speculative basis,â&#x20AC;? Avison Young concluded.

survey of registrants to the Western Canadian Hotel & Resort Investment Conference, held October 12 and 13 in Vancouver, revealed that Victoria is seen as being the weakest hotel market among major Western Canadian cities. Vancouver and Calgary are seen as competitors for top honours as the best market for hotel owners, according to the survey. In the areas of property investment, the same group has a number of interesting opinions, including some that relate to the removal of the HST. The feeling is that it will take 18 months or more for the tax to be repealed. In the meantime, it will be difficult to convince buyers to step forward to pay a higher tax than the one that will eventually be in place. In the resort market, there appears to be a sentiment that granite countertops, stainlesssteel appliances and media rooms are out of the reach of many recreational real estate purchasers. This year and next, the focus will be on more practical amenities that focus on the use of recreational real estate, as opposed to equipment rentals, $102 million; construction the investment potential, according to survey camps and catering, $94 million; clearing, logrespondents. ging, salvaging, $61 million; fuel, $42 million; stockpiling pipe, $15 million; equipment parts, $20 million; surveying, $7 million; access roads, $23 million; trucking, $18 million; and other items and services, $18 million. Also, construction employment for the 440-kilometre section passing through this nbridge says $400 million on goods and area would add up to 5,160 person years with 3,675 person years for regional residents. services during the construction phase Direct construction employment would add up would be spent in the central B.C. region to 1,805 person years with 500 person years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from Prince George to Smithers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if the for regional residents.

1,322 people, and at least 15 per cent of those jobs would be for aboriginal people. Cost of construction for this stretch is estimated at $2.2 billion. Community hearings by the federal joint panel review of the proposal are scheduled to begin January 10, 2012, and last until June 26, 2012, and a decision on whether to let the project go ahead is expected in the fourth quarter of 2012. Pending approval, detailed engineering would begin at that time while construction would take two-and-a-half-to-three years, so that that pipeline begins operating in 2017.â&#x2014;&#x2020; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Prince George Citizen
