Dear Readers,

We’re approaching the end of the first quarter and the conversations I’m hearing on a daily basis have gravitated from the price of oil and its effect on Texas commercial real estate to tirades and head shaking about the candidates for the upcoming presidential election. Both have an effect on our economy and our attitudes i.e., consumer confidence.

I’ve been involved in the commercial real estate industry for all of my adult life, have weathered all of the CRE cycles, and have never stopped marveling at the resiliency of the people who survive and thrive in this industry. The common characteristic seems to be the possession of an entrepreneurial mindset: An attitude and approach to thinking that views obstacles as challenges and sets out to overcome them. I guess it goes without saying that we view both the price of oil and the upcoming presidential election as a challenge.

Read in this issue about Kristen McDade’s positive attitude, development opportunities in Van Alsytne, Naveen Jaggi’s upbeat view of the Texas Retail Market and Bruce Rutherford’s speculation about $62/barrel oil!

Downtown's Dorothy Fielder Park

History & a Future Welcome to Van Alstyne BY BRANDI SMITH

The tale goes that Collin McKinney was given the pen he used to sign the Texas Declaration of Independence. At 70, he was the oldest member of the Convention of 1836 at Washington-on-theBrazos. McKinney’s true pioneer story started long before the convention, but it ends right where ours begins: in Van Alstyne, Texas.

“You have a lot of history here”

The town, which now boasts a population of more than 3,000, had very humble beginnings. It truly began with a community called Mantua, located just a few miles southwest of what is now Van Alstyne. Mantua had been founded in 1854 as a site for a seminary. The school set the tone for the town; gambling, horse racing and liquor sales were all prohibited. Within a couple years, Mantua’s population grew to roughly 300. But when Houston & Central Railroad came calling in 1872, asking for $1,000 to put a railroad through the town, the rail company was denied. Instead, it purchased neighboring 10

March 2016

property located in Van Alstyne, named for Maria Van Alstyne, the widow of the railroad’s treasurer and stockholder, William Van Alstyne.

The rail line helped the fledgling city swell in population, eventually drawing the people, businesses and even the First Christian Church—the oldest in Texas —from Mantua. This is where Collin McKinney, namesake of Texas’ Collin County and McKinney, its county seat, was laid to rest. “You have a lot of history here that is a part of Texas,” said Randy Uselton, president of the Van Alstyne Economic Development Corporation.

“We're planning before it's time to build”

Now nearly 150 years in, a lot has changed in what was once a rural community, located 50 miles north of Texas’ secondlargest city.

“Dallas is moving this way. We're not going to be able to stop it,” Uselton said. “U.S. 75 is already set up to come all the way to Van Alstyne and be widened. We know it's coming.” Van Alstyne leaders had the foresight to plan for the eventuality that Dallas’ sprawl would stretch that far north.

Frank Baker


Grayson College

“The city has been forward looking for generations and thus we have planned ahead for the growth that is coming our way,” said Bill Benton, whose family established its real estate company, Benton Luttrell, just 17 years after Van Alstyne was established.

Planning for future growth included maintaining what makes the community a destination for residents and businesses. The city aimed to preserve its historic downtown while offering opportunity for development in designated areas. “The city council did a really good job of laying out the city and setting areas that are for industrial or for commercial,” Uselton said. “We're planning before it's time to build.” That forward-thinking approach is what drew city

manager Frank Baker to Van Alstyne in 2012.

“I saw the potential to influence change in a community that’s rich in history and on the edge of the urban sprawl,” he said.

Since he came on board nearly four years ago, Baker said he’s focused on identifying deficiencies in resources and services, including utilities, infrastructure, roads and drainage. The city’s also working to update walking trails and park playground equipment.

Van Alstyne is also in the process of increasing its water system capacity, installing larger water mains on the west side of U.S. 75. It’s working on a similar project for the sewer system and is also updating the Wastewater Treatment Plant. Van Alstyne Downtown

The primary focus, though, is always on managing growth.

“We’re doing that through direct discussions with property owners and developers to discuss their specific ideas,” Baker said. “Those ideas are compared with the community development plans, the city’s design manual and subdivision regulations. If those ideas complement the adopted plans, we work toward making the ideas reality.”

“I sit down and listen”

Van Alstyne’s EDC, founded in 1996, plays a principal role in helping build the future in this historic town, specifically in enticing new businesses to move and convincing existing businesses to stay. The two-pronged approach begins by reaching out to interested parties with an information-packed brochure highlighting the history and Van Alstyne City Hall

Van Alstyne Construction

future of Van Alstyne.

“We're ready for companies to come in and be a part of our community,” Uselton said. “We don’t want them to come in and set up just because we have land. We want them to say, ‘Y'all are easy to work with, so we're going to come there.’” Once a business has settled in Van Alstyne, the next challenge is keeping it. That’s where the EDC’s Business Retention Program comes in. “What I do at my job is I sit down and listen to people: what do they need? How can we help them? Then we bring programs to them in a way that personalizes it for their company that they can use,” said Uselton.

He illustrated his point by sharing a recent conversation with a Van Alstyne-based business that had outgrown its building.

“We worked with them to get them in a position to stay in the area,” Uselton said. “They're going to put up a new building, new offices and a new warehouse.” It’s clear many companies — big and small— have made the choice to stay in Van Alstyne.

Mantua District Plan

“A can-do attitude is contagious"

On Van Alstyne’s horizon both literally and figuratively is a massive project sure to have a substantial impact. Called Mantua, the 3,017-acre development stretches from Van Alstyne into neighboring Anna. “When fully developed, Mantua will be among the largest developments in the DFW region,” said Benton, the developer whose family started its business in Van Alstyne three generations ago. “Its most intriguing attribute is the reality that Mantua will have the most freeway frontage, access and commercial potential of any mixed-use planned community development in North Texas.”

The project, which spans nearly 5 square miles, hasn’t started construction yet. Benton said that will be determined by “the continued march of development north on U.S. 75 and the owner’s timing.”

However, as it develops, Mantua will have an increasingly dramatic and positive influence on Van Alstyne and Anna, Benton predicted. “It will do that by stimulating a stronger mix of land uses, property values and related revenue opportunities,” he said. “Location is key, but the history and culture of our community that has a can-do attitude is contagious.” Hardware Company have all been in operation for more than 100 years. Others, such as GCEC Electric & Telecom and Foxworth Galbraith, may not have been there quite as long, but the jobs they’ve created have had a significant economic impact on the community. “These businesses come to town and they don't want to leave because they have good employees and a good quality of life,” said Uselton.

“It's an asset for the community”

Another fairly new addition to the historic town is Grayson County College - South Campus. Built in 2005, it’s already added a new building to keep up with demand and Grayson’s president said there could be more expansion in the not-too-distant future. “The South campus is definitely on the radar for more buildings and different outreach opportunities,” said Dr. Kim Williams.

The college provides another draw for businesses considering relocating to Van Alstyne: a skilled workforce. Students are able to earn Associate degrees in a variety of fields, including welding, electrical technology and medical laboratory technology. They’re also able to get their vocational nursing certificate. Already serving approximately 500 students each term, Dr. Williams predicts Grayson’s south campus population will grow right along with the city.

“I think we all work well together. I do think it's an asset for the community to have something like this in a town this size,” she said.

March 2016

The city is also eyeing other opportunities for development, having recently annexed 380 acres for mixed-use.

“We have retail and commercial identified along the thoroughfare corridors. Further into the property, there will be single-family and two-family homes,” Baker said.

Meantime, D.R. Horton and Stonehollow Homes are working on a multi-phase subdivision called Georgetown, while Circle Plat Homes is redeveloping lots in some of the city’s more historic areas. Baker highlighted a variety of other new additions to Van Alstyne’s business community, including O’Reilly Auto Parts, Golden Chick and Palladium USA International. Even more is on its way.

“I believe we're one of the finalists for the distribution center to be put in our area that will service Dallas,” Uselton said. “Hopefully we'll have some finalization on that in the near future.”

“The potential here is great”

Amidst the growth and changing landscape within Van Alstyne, leaders there understand the value of maintaining its quality of life. “People are seeing that Van Alstyne is a beautiful town,” said Uselton. “I can see the stars at night here, but in fifteen minutes I'm into Dallas.” Along with its beauty, history and key location come endless recreational opportunities and a lauded school system. “I think the potential here is great,” said Dr. Williams.

Added Baker: “Van Alstyne, Texas, is one of the best places in this nation to work, live and play.” ●

Legal Exactions or “Platmail”?: The Developer Debate Over Proportionality BY BRANDI SMITH

The project seemed like it had “green light” written all over it: a three-phase, 247-lot residential subdivision planned in a small community that struggled to keep up with a recent population boom. On the surface, it appeared to be a win-win for the developer and the town. However, before the town would approve the plat, it required the developer to rebuild an existing two-lane asphalt road with concrete, the modern standard. The cost of such an exaction was steep: roughly $500,000. Though the developer fought the requirement, the improvement was made, but under protest.

The developer filed suit once the project was complete, alleging the town took property without just compensation. The case made its way to the Texas Supreme Court, which upheld lower court rulings that the town had not adequately covered its share of the road costs. This story, which may feel all too familiar for our developer readers, played out in 2004 in Town of Flower Mound vs. Stafford Estates Limited Partnership. The case put renewed emphasis on the idea of rough proportionality, an approach by which all future exactions were required to be measured.

What is an exaction?

Exactions are fairly common in the development community, requiring a developer to mitigate anticipated negative effects of a new project on public infrastructure. “Think of it as a payment by a developer to the government in order to be able to develop 14

March 2016

a project,” said Reid Wilson, managing shareholder at Wilson Cribbs & Goren in Houston, who often represents developers. “The most common exactions come in the form of right-of-way and related public improvements, public easements of various types, including for public services, such as a police or fire station.”

The two-lane concrete road referenced in the Stafford Estates case is a perfect example. Before the project could get started, the town required the developer to agree to an exaction, which the town stated was mandatory to mitigate the traffic impact the residential development would have. “The idea is that an exaction is ‘fair’ if it is to address the impact of the new project on the public, generally and specifically public infrastructure,” Wilson said.

The developer took issue with the amount of money spent to replace the existing road compared to his project’s impact on the road from increased density.

“Constitutionally, when the government takes your property, you are to be compensated for the taking of the property,” said Terry Welch, partner at Richardsonbased Brown & Hofmeister, who represents municipalities and was involved in the Stafford Estates case.

What is rough proportionality?

Rough proportionality is the tool by which entities are legally required to judge an exaction. “Proportionality is the idea that there has to be a reasonable relationship between the exaction and the impact of the new

project,” said Wilson, who jumped into real estate law back in 1979. “The concept is that the developer should account for any burden that is related to their project. In a residential subdivision, the developer is creating a need for roads and utilities, so the developer is obligated to dedicate streets and utility easements.” Referencing again the two-lane concrete road at issue in the Stafford Estates suit, the full construction cost absorbed by the developer was not proportional to its future use by drivers who didn’t live in the subdivision. “The cost you charge that developer for whatever that infrastructure may be roads, sewer, water - it has to be roughly proportional to their impact,” Welch said.

In the case of Stafford Estates, that would mean determining the percentage of its residents who would use the road, compared to all future driver. If the cost to build the road were $500,000 and Stafford Estates residents only accounted for 20 percent of the traffic on it, rough proportionality decrees the developer should only be required to pay $100,000 and the city should offset the remaining expenses.

“You get into those types of questions about ‘How do we apportion those costs?’ because it's not really fair to say the first guy who does anything has to pay for everything, and then from that point forward everybody else kind of hooks on free of charge,” said Welch.

Why the conflict?

Conflict can sometimes arise when the two sides cannot come to agreement on the terms of an exaction.


“Both sides are looking at money and they are going to disagree on that,” Welch said.

What about the government entity?

In the interest of forward progress, developers often give in to the demands of the entity to which it's applying simply to keep the project alive.

Imagine a small town of 1,300 on the fringes of a booming metro area. A developer eyeing the area applies for a permit to build a subdivision and the city agrees to the plan, but only if the developer also builds a $1 million stretch of road. After gauging proportionality, it’s determined the developer should only be responsible for 25 percent of the burden, leaving the city with a $750,000 tab.

“I’d like to think that most local entities are trying to be fair, but it's fair in their minds,” Wilson said. “I can tell you that sometimes there is a mindset that the developer is an ATM that has unlimited resources available to provide benefits to a community.”

“In the land use business, we sometimes will talk about those required dedications as ‘platmail,’ because they come at the platting stage” said Wilson. “We say that in fun, but sometimes the development community feels just like that because the local government says, unless you give us those dedications on the face on the plat, you're not going to get approved.”

“Both sides are looking at money and they are going to disagree on that,” says Welch.

However, since the 2004 Stafford Estates ruling, developers are becoming more aware of their rights as property owners.

“Those cities are being challenged more and more because they are not complying with the legal requirement for an individualized analysis and determination of rough proportionality, as required by Stafford Estates,” Wilson said.

In some cases, though, the city or county to which a developer applies simply doesn’t have the money or resources to cover the public share of an exaction.

“The problem arises: what if the city doesn’t have $750,000 to pay for it? I've had that happen in smaller communities,” Welch said. “I've seen projects die because developers say, ‘Well, my share is $250,000.’ The city says, ‘Great, but we'll let you know when we get $750,000 for our share of the road.’”

Welch, who represents several government entities in the Dallas area, points to a particular project in Kaufman County to illustrate the point. “They have some of the most beautiful lots on a lake that I have ever seen,” he said.

The issue isn’t the lots, but the only road by which a driver can access the development. Built in the 1930s, Welch describes it as old, pocked and so awful “you’re afraid you’re going to break an axle.” He says the developer asked the city to contribute to the road’s improvements, but budget limitations restricted what the city March 2016

What can developers do?

“Sometimes there is a mindset that the developer is an ATM that has unlimited resources,” Wilson says. was able to provide. In the end, the project moved forward, but without a modern road for potential residents to travel.

“They had a hard time selling houses, or selling lots for houses, because the road to get you out there is awful,” Welch said.

Exactions vs. eminent domain

Though similar to an exaction, eminent domain is an entirely different issue faced by developers, but typically after a project has been completed. Eminent domain allows a variety of agencies to take property for public use, but only if they pay fair market value. “There are a surprising number of governmental entities and private corporations that have the power of eminent domain,” said David Showalter of Richmond’s Showalter Law Firm. Showalter got started in real estate law in 1977, just after graduating from Baylor Law School. His firm has handled hundreds of eminent domain cases, which, he says, often involve many twists and turns.

“The first thing developers need to do is hire a lawyer who’s familiar with the eminent domain process because then we help strategize an approach to the condemnation,” Showalter said. “The sooner we get involved in the process, the sooner we can be protecting the developer.” 16

“Developers have to understand their rights, then they have to assert their rights,” said Wilson. “They have to make the hard choice of whether they should accept an exaction as-is or whether they should acquiesce under protest, which they may do under the law.” Were a developer to “acquiesce under protest,” the project moves forward with the exaction, as laid out by the permitting entity. It also leaves the door open for a legal fight if the developer chooses to pursue it.

Reid Wilson

“We're starting to see some litigation on these matters. I will say that much of the time, the developer will negotiate and make a decision to move forward and just absorb the cost,” Wilson said. “But the development community it becoming aware of its rights and being more aggressive in asserting them.” In the end, the decision remains in the hands of the developer: to give in, to acquiesce under protest or to abandon the project altogether. Above all else, it’s imperative Texas developers be familiar with the options available to them. After all, the most important tool in a developer’s toolbox is knowledge. ●

Interview with Kristen McDade

Kristen McDade

When Kristen McDade started her career in real estate back in 1999, she had no idea that she was learning from a legend in the Houston industry. To her, he was just “Dad;” to everyone else, he was Bill McDade, the man who has brokered or co-brokered transactions totaling more than $1 billion.

"‘Be you. Be smart. Be patient. Be honest. Be respectful."

BY BRANDI SMITH

Still, the field was very much a “Good Ol’ Boys Club” 17 years ago when she got her start, which created an obstacle of sorts.

“A woman in real estate was more rare then,” said Kristen. “I would say to women getting into the field: ‘Be you. Be smart. 18

One of those tracts that has Kristen fired up right now is a site in La Marque, an area experiencing a residential boom. She’s hoping to connect with a developer who’s able to visualize the potential that lies within those 44 acres. “I can’t wait to see the project completed one day!” she said.

“This city will keep growing and changing,” Kristen said. “Investing in Houston is smart.” ●

“I love digging out opportunities,” she said. “It is also very rewarding to work on a tract of land with unlimited potential. Whether it becomes a mixed-use development, a specific use, etc., it’s all up to the imagination of the buyer/developer.”

“I am extremely busy, but in slightly different ways,” Kristen said. “We continue to have high-quality real estate and irreplaceable sites - I handle a few of them myself.”

She offers the site at 22 Waugh as a prime example. The buyer closed on the property last year, creatively using the existing building, and now Kristen is handling several listings in HOUSTON, TX the area, specifically the very desirable corner of Waugh Drive and D’Amico Street.

“I quickly developed a rapport with the brokerage community and the buyers and sellers we worked with,” Kristen said.

As Kristen did just that, she found she enjoyed stepping up and taking on new challenges, especially when it came to brokering land deals.

Despite slumping oil prices and the bite they take out of Houston, Kristen says there’s a lot to be positive about in the market right now.

Work it did. Over the years, the senior McDade helped his daughter learn how he put deals together and develop a business instinct of her own. She moved from handling marketing and listings to land research and client relations.

Top Trends in Texas Retail It’s no surprise that tanking oil prices have taken their toll on the Texas economy, most notably in Houston. However, it’s not all black clouds and bad news in the Lone Star State, according to Naveen Jaggi, president of retail brokerage at JLL.

Naveen Jaggi

BY BRANDI SMITH

Despite the hiccups of the past year, the Texas economy is still a major player - not just in the United States, but worldwide.

“The Texas economy GDP is equivalent to the Scandinavian countries, so it’s a sizable economy in every way,” Jaggi said.

Market breakdown

According to JLL’s research, the four major Texas markets are either rising or peaking on its retail property clock (see illustration).

“We've been on a steady climb to the point where rental rates in Dallas, Austin and Houston now are at or above pre-Recession levels,” Jaggi pointed out. “That means you have a full, healthy economy.”

The next step on the clock is plateauing and falling, which Jaggi expects to see in Houston before Dallas. “I think Dallas still has some more room to grow from a rental rates standpoint,” he said. San Antonio, on the other hand, is on its way up. “The military has a big part to do with it,” said Jaggi.

Three key trends

As those cities continue their progress, he says there are three key issues that will impact Texas retail positively. 20

March 2016

Energy prices: “As the oil industry contracted during 2015, the pain was mostly felt out in the field. The high-skill jobs haven't seen a net loss of jobs. Houston is also definitely diversified. It’s less reliant on energy than it was 20 years ago or even the last time we had this kind of a pull back back in 1999 and 2000.

Health & education: “In my opinion, the future in Houston also relies on diversification in two sectors. The Medical Center in Houston and its exponential growth in the suburbs is phenomenal. Then combine that with education. We certainly are seeing all the main universities -

University of Houston being the first one - investing heavily in infrastructure and growth with their annexes.”

Business-friendly environment: “There are two things that drive an interest in investing in any market: taxes, low or high, and cost of housing, low or high. Texas has no state income tax and Texas has quality affordable housing. Those two features alone will continue to drive people to come here.”

A positive outlook

Because of those three factors, Jaggi says JLL’s research points

to a very positive retail outlook in Texas and he expects the state to maintain its rank as the No. 1 market for retail development, ahead of competitors, such as New York, California and Florida.

“The state of Texas is a diversified economy and it's not oil dependent from a macro standpoint,” he said. “We're a health economy.” ●

Camden McGowen Station

Houston Apartment Market Overbuilt, Industry Experts Say HOUSTON (Houston Chronicle) – The downturn in the energy sector is resulting in a downturn in the local multifamily market, some industry experts say.

In its 2016 forecast, Apartment Data Services called the Houston market "overbuilt," saying there is "too much supply for demand."

Ric Campo, CEO of residential developer Camden, agreed, telling the Houston Chronicle that "it won't be as bad as people think. But now, it's going to be a tenant's market."

He said losses in energy jobs here will be partially offset by gains in health care, education, hospitality and government. Even so, he said it will be a slow year for Houston, and that the city "has too many apartments coming online" given that slower growth.

Ric Campo

22

Bruce McClenny with Apartment Data Services said the market is skewed toward Class A units. He said the higher end stock is overbuilt, and he expects area occupancy to fall to 89 percent this year after a lengthy period of steady increase. High-end apartments traditionally account for about 17 percent of the local market, McClenny said. Now, it's closer to 24 percent. These newly built units average $1,400 a month. The overall rental price in the Houston region is $996. â—?

• Daily supply of crude oil only

exceeds demand by about one per cent, and demand worldwide is growing at approximately one per cent per year-so the balance is not far off; however, only one per cent imbalance was enough to send prices plummeting from $100 to $30!

• Worldwide supply has been

stable for last few years and is slightly declining due to aging infrastructure and political situations in producer countries other than the US

• Supply growth has been

almost exclusively in the US, where “the spigot can be turned on and off quickly” in response to market forces

• Shale production takes huge

capital outlays during drilling and ongoing throughout the life of the well, creating lots of work for oilfield supply companies

• Capital outlays have come

mostly from private equity and lender services, less from banks-so “the banks are not in trouble” overall

• Shale oil production got

started 2009-2012 and really

24

March 2016

built momentum, zooming up in 2013-2015 causing present oversupply

• With all the boom in shale oil,

the US still imports about 40% of its needs, so relations with countries like Saudi Arabia are still vital to us-our exports of oil are tiny in the overall equation and it is a question of exporting certain grades to certain offshore refineries

• Rig count at all-time low

of 600, going to 500-this is from peak of 2,200 rigs-this represents huge hit to service companies in the Oil Patch

• The “fix” to the supply/demand

imbalance is already well underway, and by the end of this year prices around $60 per barrel are predicted, going to $70 in 2017…but, “this could be wrong”

• Asian economies are

continuing to grow and transportation and demand for fuel is growing too

• Iran production will not be a big factor, but it has been a scare factor to the market

• “Falling demand for petroleum products” in Asian countries

means only that demand there will grow at 15% per year and not 18%, so not a consequential negative

• Hotel Market: starting to see

each year from the previous year, unlike conventional wells, so new drilling must continue for overall production to stay even

• Retail Market: still strong

• Shale oil wells deplete 30-40%

• Demand worldwide for

Liquified Natural Gas continues to grow and exports will increase

• Pipelines cost half as much

as rail to ship petroleum products and with lots of pipelines under construction, most basins in US will be “overpiped” by 2016

• Some pipelines are being

built to export natural gas to Mexico, but Pemex is experiencing managerial and financial weakness on its end, delaying progress

• Office Market: vacancies rising in sub-markets where O&G layoffs are happening, and lots of sub-lease space is coming on market, putting downward pressure on rates

weakness as supply of rooms catches up, just as demand from O&G business travel slacks off and playing catch-up; some regional malls being renovated/reconcepted

• Industrial Market: still strong with vacancies up only from 4 to 5%

• Multi Family: WAY overbuilt,

and net absorption at zero with almost 30,000 units still under construction-ouch!

• Single Family: still only about 3.5 months inventory in resale market; demand for new homes and lots remains good

• Construction prices still high and contractors still have backlogs

• Positive job growth in Houston predicted this year in the 21,000 range-as high salaried O&G jobs shrink, lower pay hospitality and leisure and government and medical and education job openings will grow ●

O’Connor & Associates January: Oil & The Office Market

Speaker: Bruce Rutherford, International Director JLL TAKEAWAY: Houston office market will suffer extreme weakness in those submarkets depending on the Energy Sector: The Energy Corridor, Greenspoint, Westchase, & The Woodlands. Less pain in the CBD, but still some, and some in the Galleria. Oil prices should be in the $60-62 range by end of 2016, but will have to stabilize for a period of many months before any new hiring by oil companies. Mergers & acquisitions and bankruptcies will continue to throw sub-lease space into an already glutted market in these submarkets. BY RAY HANKAMER

• Oil traders, not refineries or endusers, establish the price of a barrel of oil • Supply is falling off dramatically as it becomes un-economic to produce, but demand, while slowing a little, continues to grow worldwide • China’s middle class is burgeoning and vehicle ownership will create ongoing rising demand into the foreseeable future • US has become the world’s swing producer, replacing OPEC in years past; US is very nimble in responding to market forces and can turn the spigot on or off more efficiently than many other producer countries • Some countries whose production costs are high will cease producing altogether, while American engineers are resourceful and will continue lowering the cost of bringing a barrel to market • Offshore is more expensive and development there take a very long time; it will be the last to resume exploration after prices stabilize • For tenants, now is the time to move up to quality and to lock in long-term deals at lower rates • For landlords, lead the market down by being pro-active to get / keep the best tenants; don’t 26

‘follow the market down’ • Energy Corridor office has 17% vacancy including sub-lease and it may be 35% by end of the year • Houston is where the core employees of the worldwide oil

and gas industry are working and they are far less likely to be laid off than blue collar or other employees in far-flung branch locations

• “2018” should be a super year for Houston-ongoing from there will be ups and downs but nothing so dramatic as we have experienced recently ●

This is how oil prices are better, sooner Global crude production
