Dear Readers, I just reread what I wrote in the December 2012 issue and am once again reminded what a difference a year can make. Last year we were cautiously optimistic about the beginnings of a CRE turnaround and this year we’re in the middle of the “Texas Shale Rush” which is making Texas the energy capital of the world. How comforting it is to begin thinking that the majority of our fuel will be “Made in USA” or better still, “Made in Texas”!

The ICSC Texas’ Dealmakers Conference several weeks ago was the best of any I have ever attended from the standpoint of watching deals happen. Everyone was busily moving from one meeting to another transacting business and if there was any complaint, it was “so many opportunities – so little time”. This month in REDNews we have focused on office & industrial development throughout Texas. We easily filled eight pages with Texas office & industrial projects that have recently been completed, are under construction and/are planned/proposed and this doesn’t include recent land transactions that have occurred for the purpose of commercial development! (see pages 22-29). Next month we’ll expand our research to include additional availability & investment/development opportunity in Texas beyond the office & industrial markets, so stay tuned for the January 2014 issue. If there is something you would especially like to see in that issue, please let me know. Hope you all have a wonderful holiday season! All my best,

A Sudden Uptick in Demand by Amy Sorter REDNews Contributing Writer

According to Mike Berry, industrial activity at AllianceTexas’ Alliance Global Logistics Hub in 2012 was trucking along, with existing customers extending and renewing their leases. Then, beginning in Q4 2012, all heck broke loose. “We made two build-to-suit leases for Amazon, more than one million square feet at AllianceTexas and the same in Coppell, north of DFW Airport on a site we own,” says Berry, president of Hillwood Properties. Hillwood is the developer of the 18,000-acre-master-planned, mixed-use AllianceTexas, located in North Fort Worth.

the project, which is still under construction, didn’t remain speculative for long. LG Electronics signed a lease to take down the entire building. “We had a lot of vacancy, then all of a sudden didn’t have any,” Berry says, adding that Alliance Center North 2, another speculative building, is moving quickly from the drawing board to construction launch. In addition to being rail-served by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe’s intermodal facility (as well as rail service via a Union Pacific rail line), the Alliance Global Logistics Hub has access to Interstate 35W and several Texas highways Furthermore, the logistic hub has its own airport, Fort Worth-Alliance Airport.

Meanwhile, on Dallas’ South Side . . .

Mike Berry

Following on the heels of the Amazon deal, WalMart Stores Inc. came to Alliance during the middle of 2013 to take-down approximately 800,000 square feet for a new e-commerce fulfillment center. At the same time, Motorola Inc. wanted about 500,000 square feet at Alliance to assemble its new Moto X smart phone. The result? “We had more than 3 million square feet of space absorbed within a six-month period, either through construction or expansion,” Berry remarks. The activity, which left Alliance’s industrial component at 95% capacity, prompted Hillwood to launch construction on Alliance Center North 1, a 1.2-million speculative industrial facility. But


On the other side of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, on an almost diagonal trajectory from Alliance as the crow flies, is the International Inland Port of Dallas, a 234,000-acre, 12-municipality public-private regional intermodal development. Situated at the intersection of Interstates 20, 30 and 45, and directly rail-served by both Union Pacific and the BNSF railroads, the IIPOD experienced various hiccups since its official formation in 2005. Even before that, South Dallas, with its land availability, didn’t attract much interest. That is, until recently. Earlier this year, L’Oreal Group launched construction on its 513,000-square-foot distribution center. Meanwhile, Prologis has just completed a 653,000-square-foot speculative building in its 20/35 business park, a development offering warehouses and distribution centers. The developer is also building a 1.2-million-squarefoot regional distribution hub for Quaker Sales and Distribution Inc. Development is also underway on a 282,000-square-foot parts facility for BMW. Hillwood and Trammell Crow Corp. are also going north on speculative industrial developments in

Mike Rader, who owns approximately 4,000 acres of land in and around the intermodel development says ...

"During the past 18 months we've seen a lot of distribution centers being planned or coming online in the interstate 20-30-45 corridor.” n n n the region. In short, it’s probably safe to say that South Dallas is the overnight success story decades in the making. According to Mike Rader, president of Prime Rail Interests in Colleyville, TX, South Dallas carried a negative perception for years. That, plus the lack of water and utility infrastructure, stymied growth of the submarket and the IIPOD. Added to this issue was that the Allen Group, which owned approximately 6,000 acres in and around the intermodal facility, ended up in bankruptcy court, a victim of the Great Recession and its financial aftermath. But those troubles seem to be in the past. Infrastructure is in place and the 12 municipalities involved with the IIPOD have banded together. Rader, who owns approximately 4,000 acres of land in and around the intermodal development, says the result has been that major developers continue to eye the region, with corporations looking at it for everything from manufacturing to logistics. “During the past 18 months, we’ve seen a lot of distribution centers being planned or coming online in that Interstate 20-30-45 corridor,” he adds. Growth in the South Dallas corridor has become such a certainty, that industrial experts familiar with the area claim the IIPOD will rival Southern California’s Inland Empire as a major distribution hub within the next decade or two.

So Much Demand, So Little Supply Today, however, the industrial-oriented interest in the DFW area has meant vacancy in the single digits. CBRE’s recent Q3 industrial report puts areawide vacancy at 7.3%, while Jones Lang LaSalle’s report covering the same period places the vacancy rate at 6.8%. Furthermore, construction isn’t exactly booming to meet the demand – Both the JLL and CBRE reports point out that approximately 10 million square feet is under construction. “The starting buzzer for construction is typically 10%,” says Terry Darrow, managing director industrial/ supply chain and logistics at Jones Lang LaSalle’s Dallas office. “Typically, when that happened in the past, everyone with a pickup truck and a ladder would build.”

streaming from the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. And though there is little rail service between Houston and DFW, once containers are offloaded from vessels at the Port of Houston onto trucks, “you can get them from Houston to Dallas in a day’s drive,” comments Josh McArtor, an executive vice president in CBRE’s institutional group. DFW’s population growth, combined with Texas’ overall business-friendly attitude, has also been attractive to businesses wanting to either relocate or expand. Furthermore, cost has been a factor when it comes to distribution. “It’s less expensive to ship via intermodal containers on flatbeds from the West Coast than to go through the Panama Canal,” Fraker observes. And DFW, with its centric geographic location, is benefitting. “We have the major freeways and a huge population of trained labor here already,” Fraker says. This, in turn, has led to the Dallas-Fort Worth region’s position as an ideal logistics center for companies that want to streamline logistics, and do it at a relatively reasonable cost.

Wide Open Spaces Even better news for Alliance Global Gateway and the IIPOD is that other logical industrial areas, such as those connected with the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, are running out of space. Jack Fraker & Josh McArtor

But then came the Great Recession and its financial aftermath. Given that, Darrow notes, builders became more cautious. Adds CBRE capital markets industrial practice managing director and vice chairman Jack Fraker: “Institutions and developers are doing a lot more due diligence before pulling the trigger on new projects.” Though the reluctance to build is commendable, especially given the fact that overbuilding was more the exception than the rule during the 1980s and 1990s, the lack of industrial space comes at a time during which the DFW area has grown into an important role in the US logistics chain. Unlike Houston, which has its port, its energy and is considered an international distribution point, the Dallas-Fort Worth area has become more of a national distribution center, especially for goods

“A lack of land in the interior markets is pushing tenants that want to expand toward Alliance or South Dallas,” McArtor explains. “In addition to being inland ports, there is land available at these two sites; you can take down 50 or 60 acres and build on it. Industrial users trying to find that same amount of land further inland has become more difficult and expensive”, McArtor adds. Interestingly enough, even with the demand, the experts point out that overbuilding won’t be an issue for a while. “We won’t have cowboys just throwing up buildings,” McArtor says. Mike Rader, for one, predicts an additional 10 million square feet of build-to-suit and speculative space going north in South Dallas, a mix of speculative and build-to-suit space. Also coming online will be facilities divisible for smaller businesses, he adds.

Terry Darrow

JLL’s Darrow agrees, pointing out that a good chunk of the speculative development will be geared toward the 150,000-250,000-square-foot user. “That’s a better indicator of the market’s health than the one-million-square-foot build-to-suits,” he comments. “It means the smaller companies are coming in to serve the larger guys.” Berry sounds a somewhat more cautious note for 2014, pointing out that if GDP continues at its current 2.5%-3% growth, interest rates remain low and the housing market continues rebounding, industrial deals will continue happening. “Everyone’s back into forward motion and doing capital projects they’ve delayed for several years,” he adds. “I think 2014 will be a good year.”

Growth in the South Dallas corridor has become such a certainty, that industrial experts familiar with the area claim the IIPOD will rival Southern California’s Inland Empire as a major distribution hub within the next decade or two.

Industrial Real Estate on the Move

Kelley Parker, Cushman & Wakefield

REDNews interview with Kelley Parker on his years in industrial real estate beginning in 1976 with The Horne Company.

broker’s commissions. But the day of everybody convening with attorneys and everyone else at the closing table has almost gone away. In the past, 100% of the deals closed in that manner; today likely the number of formal closings is less than 20% of the total deals done.

RN: Tell me about your CRE career path and your focus on industrial real estate?

Electronic communication has totally changed this business as well. Information is much more readily available. In the past, you had to be out there, driving and digging all the time. I’d spend Saturdays or Sundays dragging my wife and kids around with me, looking at properties in different parts of towns. “I’ve got to go look at this part of town, because I don’t know it. I’m going to be doing a tour; I need to learn the area. Or, I’ve got to find a property.” Today, with electronic access, that’s just not as necessary a part of the process. I am able to be much more efficient when I research an area or search for a property that meets my client’s criteria. But in all honesty, I’ve also been in the business for a while. I’ve done my research and I know what’s out there in myriad ways that I didn’t back then.

Kelley Parker: I actually began my real estate career with The Horne Company in 1976 where I ultimately managed their industrial brokerage department and in 1990 I joined Cushman Wakefield. Before that, when I got out of graduate school, I went to work for my father in the family company, which was part of Parker Brothers & Company, a sand, concrete & building materials company. My father had a division called the Houston Barge Lines which was in marine transportation. I worked for him for three years. Actually I’d been working in my father’s business since I was fourteen years old. I’d been groomed for it, but it always remained my father’s business. It just wasn’t for me. So a friend got me an interview with The Horne Company and everything sort of went from there. I navigated into industrial with my first CRE job because that’s what I knew. Over the years you might say I’ve become a bit of a ‘deal junkie’. I just love putting deals together and enjoy difficult site acquisitions/dispositions and lease negotiations. RN: Many of the experienced brokers are talking about the importance of having a mentor as they started their careers, and they’re talking about utilizing their experience in the CRE field to mentor others. Have you observed mentoring to be important in CRE in terms of ‘staying power’ and effectiveness and job satisfaction? Kelley Parker: I’ve had some great mentors over the years: David Cook, Howard Horne, Sid Smith, Bill McDade, they have all been great. And there are others I could name as well. I like working with a team, and I try to learn something from each deal that I’m involved with. RN: How has the CRE field changed during your years within the profession? Kelley Parker: When I first got in this business, closings were a big deal. I remember spending many a New Year’s Eve, late at night, getting a deal closed before the end of the year. Many times there were some re-negotiations done at closing, including


Something that hasn’t changed much at all is that the broker has got to know the real estate, the happenings, the trends, and the players in the marketplace. Experience, especially for those of us who learn something every time out, really does count in this business. And I guess it is accurate to say that I’m something of a glutton for punishment at times. I like to deal with properties that are interesting, and have problems to solve. This can turn me into a developer type, but I certainly don’t have the liability that the developer has. I don’t have the rewards either. Much of my experience involves the Houston ship channel and waterfront properties. That market is pretty well developed. Right now we have some properties in the Port Arthur-Beaumont area that we’re marketing. But we have to go out to find waterfront properties for companies that are seeking them. Lake Charles is seeing significant development these days. A lot of what we see in Houston is related to petrochemical. We have become a beneficiary of low-cost natural gas. All of the companies that were building plants overseas are refocusing back in the U.S. now. We’re involved with the customers, the suppliers, the electrical infrastructure, the pipeline infrastructure, and the logistics people. This is all occurring here on the Gulf Coast, for the most part. I think Chambers County has eight or ten billion dollars worth of projects going on right now. Louisiana has a bunch. Dow is going great guns. I don’t see this stopping any time soon. Many of the facilities that were structured for export are now being restructured for import. This includes all of the L and G facilities. Cheniere’s has already gotten

their permit, and they’ll be shipping out in a couple of years; they’re in Sabine Pass. This boom is going to last for a while, because these plants aren’t built overnight. At the present time, we have one client for whom we are finding office space, warehouse space, and other requirements for them to utilize for the next few years while they build their plant. RN: What are some concerns that you have right now with regard to CRE in general and industrial development in particular? Do you have any projections for where the profession is headed in coming years? Kelley Parker: Properties have to have curative work or analysis work to make them feasible for developers, so we’ll get involved in analysis which could cover anything from brown field sites to contaminated sites, to specific needs of process plants, chemical plants, terminals, things of that nature. We also get involved with permitting, both for air and water, and that has gotten increasingly complicated and difficult over the years. We’ve got to look at such issues as wetland analysis and traffic impact studies. The good thing is that I’m in a position now where I know the right people to talk to, the ones who can work with us, the shortcuts that we’ve learned based upon previous experience, and how to develop a work flow and time line that will allow us to get the job done as efficiently as possible. RN: Any predictions or prognostications for the future? Kelley Parker: Hopefully, I’m still around in 10 to 20 years. I plan to be, but who knows? I think that the Houston market is going to do well. The gas business is just going to keep going on. From what I hear, we’re full speed ahead through 2020. Once you get past that, who knows? I think that we’ll see a positive impact from the Panama Canal widening long-term. I think the initial few years is going to be mixed, in regard to capacity. The entire product that is being produced is going to generate warehousing needs. From the standpoint of distribution, we’ll never become a Dallas, in the way that Dallas is a regional hub like Atlanta, Memphis, or Phoenix. We’ll likely see rail increase. Houston will be playing off of the port activity, and the oil and gas industry, and supplying the city itself, including the medical community. We did a deal with Medline Industries out in Katy, in the West Ten business park. They have to supply Houston, but because they’re out west, they can also supply San Antonio. San Antonio has a similar relationship with Corpus Christi.

Mike Hill: Back in 1970, I was working as a self-employed headhunter and a friend, in the same business, and I wanted to go together and form a new company. However, he decided not to do our business together and told me about a real estate company he was going to work for, Coldwell Banker, which was just moving into Houston from the west coast. Their reputation being known out there as a well thought of company, and after research, was attractive to me. So was the starting salary of $600 a month and in 1970, that was a lot of money! They offered me either office leasing or industrial brokerage, and I thought industrial sounded good, so they gave me a desk and said, ‘go do it’. There was no training program. Back then we all believed that if a person could sell, he could sell anything. And that’s true, but you still have to develop a knowledge base about your product. I started out sitting behind a guy named Phil Kennedy and I asked him questions all day, every day, until one day he turned around and yelled at me, “Don’t ever ask me another question.” By that time, I had gleaned much of the information that I needed to survive. Today, my philosophy is that the most successful industrial broker is the one who can lease property, sell property and promote investments. The broker needs to know the properties well enough to explain to an investor exactly why this particular property is the one he or she needs to buy. My staying power in the field, I think, is directly related to the fact that I have tried to take a technical approach to the business and my priority has always been taking care of the client for the long haul. RN: Many of the experienced brokers are talking about the importance of having a mentor


Mike Hill: Over the course of about thirty years, I’ve been very involved in training young individuals coming into the CRE field. Right now I’m mentoring four young guys who are actually from different real estate firms. Steve Jaggard, a good friend, who ran Vantage Co. called them his “Young Bucks”. Back in the ‘70s, I started training/mentoring sessions with a series of CRE cassette tapes that were just a step up from the old eight-tracks. In regard to the technical side of Industrial, there is so much to learn. All of us learn something every day from what we do; that process never stops. RN: How has the CRE field changed during your years within the profession? Mike Hill: In a word, technology. When I started in the business, we did our available properties database with sheets of paper in books, not on computers. We had about twenty books, lined up on the back of the filing cabinet. That was our database. RN: I also remember those days. REDNews’ first “database” was a rolodex of 2,000 cards. Mike Hill: From time to time I still refer to those old books. I tried to digitalize all of the pre-computer era history, but the task was too monumental. I actually helped start the industrial database for CB Commercial and I still use that today. When The Commercial Gateway originally started their available properties activity, I had the opportunity to help them get that going. Then and now, I track every available freestanding building in Houston, for sale or lease, if a size is over 10,000 square feet. It’s an invaluable resource. I receive between 100 and 200 emails a day, and I’m constantly looking at my inbox and asking, “Okay, is this something I keep or throw away?” When a client walks in the door and says, “I’m looking for (as an example) a 50,000 square foot office/warehouse building in northwest Houston and I need rail, dock high loading, and an ESFR sprinkler system, I’m on top of it. In about 12 seconds I can pretty much tell my client what’s out there. My database is unique in that I have about 30 different descriptive criteria loaded for each available property, and each of those criteria is searchable. The biggest problem I have is keeping up with sold and no longer available properties. My secretary and I are constantly watching the sales in the newspaper and industry journals, as well as calling

around to brokers and getting updates. Most of my current clients are people I’ve worked with before. I also have found myself specializing somewhat by the use of the property. I’ve done a lot of work with the food storage and distribution industry (refrigerated properties), electronics, manufacturing, crane serve building. I’ve also done some work on the Ship Channel. My clients still expect me to remember the details of a deal I did for them, maybe back 25 years or more, and I’ve still got all of the information right there to refer to. I keep everything having to do with done deals.

Over the course of about thirty years, I’ve been very involved in training young individuals coming into the CRE field. n



RN: What do you see that your competitors are doing and how would you do it differently? Mike Hill: It’s this observation that makes mentoring young people coming into the profession important. And I’m not just talking about teaching someone the basics of the profession; it needs to be the entire picture. I see some really terrible presentations on properties that are done by guys who don’t think detail and form is important; they just put something out there which, in my opinion, is totally sub-standard. This is one aspect of our profession that really hasn’t changed much at all. Yeah, technology makes how we do our jobs different, but the ability to carefully present a comprehensive picture of a property, one that tells cooperating brokers and prospective buyers as much as possible about the features, assets and possible liabilities of a property is, in my opinion, a really important key to marketing industrial real estate. Time matters, so when we communicate with each other and with the client, we have to do a good job of it. The Houston commercial brokers and our clients are busy, and if a CRE professional makes an incomplete, sloppy, obscure presentation, the recipient will certainly not be impressed. RN: Why did you write the blog on your website about Robert Clay of Clay Development?

Mike Hill: Robert Clay is truly one of a kind. He’s a good friend, but I didn’t write the article about him because of that. I wrote it to explain my observation that he apparently has a unique sense for what to do at exactly the right time. This has included buying large land sites, building certain kinds of buildings, going after certain kinds of clients and pioneering in specific marketplaces, like the Katy area, and others. His timing in starting his development company with his dad in the construction business was absolutely perfect. Robert has the courage to take risks and the smarts to make them work out. It is somewhat unprecedented how he has dominated the particular industrial development market he is in. Few before him have succeeded to the degree he has in the Houston industrial development business. And he’s a fun guy to be with! RN: Many of the brokers talk about how much they’ve learned from their best deals and, in many cases, how much more they’ve learned from some deals that didn’t go as anticipated. Do you have any stories to share in this regard? Mike Hill: The 800,000 sf Albertsons distribution center in Katy, where the new Grand Parkway @ I-10 West construction is taking place, turned out

to be quite an interesting project. This was a long time ago and that property is now owned by $.99 Stores. Albertsons was a very sophisticated company with huge internal resources to bring to bear on location analysis. They knew what they wanted and all I had to do was find it. We had to do parallel due diligence on two sites because they HAD to have a site which would work for them at a predetermined point in time. Everything needed to be one hundred percent confidential, and we had to do the entire search and follow-up clandestinely. I worked with one of the most intelligent, interesting corporate real estate managers that I have ever met, a young man named Bob Banks. We worked together for more than a year, staying out of sight, meeting in hotel rooms and restaurants to go over deal details; it was all great fun. One of my worst experiences was when Conrad Bernard, who was one of my trainees back then, was sitting with me during a presentation that I was making to a client. This occurred at a time when I thought I was pretty smart. So I was holding forth, and I could tell it wasn’t going well, but I didn’t know what was wrong. All of a sudden the client just exploded, and said, “Mr. Hill, don’t you tell me how I’m going to do this deal. I’m going to tell you how I want you to do this deal.” As you can imagine, I was pretty much thrown for

a loop at that point. After that moment, the client spoke only to Conrad, who took over, and worked with the client. That man never said another word to me, but we did get the deal done! Conrad and I still laugh about that one! RN: What’s next for Mike Hill? Mike Hill: I’m now in the “fall” of my career, and I feel so extremely fortunate to have been able to do the things that I’ve done. CB Commercial was a great company to be with for those 32 years, and after 10 years now on my own, I’m loving that as well. One of the really nice things which makes the job easier and more fun is that, in Houston, the commercial brokerage community is really close. We’re all good friends. It doesn’t get any better than that. I still do the best I can to serve my clients. I still love the mentoring of young folks in this business, as they are the future. It’s amazing to watch them grow through the start-up years and succeed. Brendan Lynch is probably my best example of this as he came to me as a well-educated, intelligent, driven and honest individual who I had the great privilege to work with as his trainer. Everyone knows he is a rock star in our business! I would like to help prepare more Brendan Lynches!

The Shale Revolution has triggered a renaissance in the oil and gas business in the US, and Worldwide Zulay Hankamer Oil & Gas Consultant Only a few years ago, industry experts declared that oil production in the US had peaked and was destined to progressive decline. This July, the US Department of Energy reported the US is the largest oil and associated liquids producer in the world and will surpass Russia and Saudi Arabia in two years to become the largest oil producer. Texas is playing a key role in this renaissance and the Port of Houston is ideally located and well equipped to receive and process the increasing oil and gas gushing out of the Eagle Ford. The Port is also a gateway for equipment and other supplies needed to sustain the development of the rich deposits. From its inception and the completion of the deepwater Ship Channel in 1914, the Port of Houston has been intricately linked to the oil and gas industry. The oil industry has since experienced significant ups and downs, but the activity alongside the Houston Ship Channel has demonstrated great resilience. Today, the waterway serves more than 150 public and privatelyowned cargo terminals and other industrial facilities. The Port of Houston is the nation’s No.1 port in terms of foreign waterborne tonnage and is home to the world’s second largest petrochemical complex after Rotterdam. There is yet a large new chapter of growth for the Port of Houston being called by the need to process, store and transport the increasing amounts of crude, gas and liquids being unlocked from shale deposit through the revolutionary, Texas-grown technique to inject water and sand in horizontal wells to fracture to shale rock. In a recent interview with REDNews, R.D. Tanner, Director of Real Estate at the Port of Houston Authority, indicated about 3,500 acres of green field property throughout the Port of Houston is available for development with some of the property having frontage along the Ship Channel. On the other hand, every week the media reports a new multi-million dollar investment in: • pipelines and rail systems for moving the increasing crude oil and liquids production • new and expanded processing plants and refineries in Texas, or • expansion of marine terminals that will load ships and barges with

the light crude oil to refineries in Louisiana, New Jersey or even some limited exports to Eastern Canada. The projects also generate a significant amount of skilled jobs: The Greater Houston Port Bureau expects 111,700 direct jobs and 154,100 indirect jobs to be created from announced Ship Channel investments. Very attractive employment compensation packages are being offered to entice the limited skilled labor available. In turn, the living and amenity demands of these workers will be at a higher end than typical blue collar communities. Additional facilities are needed to handle drilling equipment and steel pipe for the oil fields. Even coal export facilities are being proposed as US demand is displaced by low cost domestic natural gas. Demand for oil facilities at the Port of Houston is also coming from production increases in the Permian Basin in West Texas and from utilization of Canadian oil sands that are well suited to the sophisticated Houston high conversion refineries. Not all of the required infrastructure must have frontage to the Ship Channel, and most of the ancillary services and workers accommodations and amenities will be seeking space nearby. Expansion and development of these secondary businesses will impact land value many miles beyond the Ship Channel. Below is a description of some of the projects being developed or recently completed within the Ship Channel area and how they handle and take advantage of the increased shale production. Pipelines: Pipeline is the vehicle of choice for transporting oil in large quantities due to safety and cost. But pipelines take time to build and sometimes they may not be suitable to the terrain between the producing fields and the markets. Texas, and the Port of Houston in particular, have a well developed pipeline system; therefore Eagle Ford production is rapidly finding pipeline access to Houston. In the past 12 months two new pipelines have connected Houston refineries and storage terminals to 650,000 barrels per day (b/d) of Eagle Ford production: • Kinder Morgan started operations on June 14, 2012 of its 300,000 b/d pipeline from Cuero, Texas to the recently expanded Oiltanking Terminal. continued on page 20

From its inception and the completion of the deepwater Ship Channel in 1914, the Port of Houston has been intricately linked to the oil and gas industry.

• Enterprise’s South Texas Crude Oil pipeline system came into service in June 2012 with a 350,000 b/d line from Wilson County to Sealy, which then connects to the Rancho Pipeline into Houston and the Enterprise Houston Crude Oil terminal. Phase 2 of this project, a 200,000 b/d line from Gardendale to Wilson County, was completed in the second quarter of 2013. Rail is also utitialized. While Eagle Ford Shale is located close to existing pipeline systems, the large Bakken Shale in North Dakota is not as lucky. Extensive use of rail car has allowed Bakken production to reach markets while pipelines may take up to 5 years to be completed. Petroleum and chemical liquids and gases have been transported by rail for many years in small amounts (3 to 10 railcars per train),. However, the large volume of crude coming from the fields requires moving about 100 rail cars at a time in what is called “unit trains”. These unit trains, more than a mile long, must be taken off the tracks at the origin and receiving terminals and be loaded/unloaded at a rate of up to three unit trains or 300 cars per day. Each rail car can hold about 600 barrels.

ity sprawling 185 acre on the Houston Ship Channel. o Galena Park: A $75 million investment to build five new tanks. o Pasadena: $106 million to purchase 20 acres next to KM Pasadena terminal to build nine new storage tanks and construct a barge dock. •

Targa Resources is investing $480 million to increase capabilities to handle natural gas liquids (propane and butane) at its Galena Park site on the Ship Channel and its Mont Belvieu site northeast of the Ship Channel off Interstate 10, which are connected by pipeline. The Galena Park facility includes refrigeration facilities and marine docks for exporting propane and mixed propane-butane to international markets. The project will be complete in the third quarter of 2014. The expansion included acquisition of the Patriot Terminal just south of Targa’s Galena Park, with existing dock and nearby access to refined products pipeline.

Intercontinental Terminals: $150 million investment announced in March 2013 for the purchase of 180 acres greenfield site in Pasadena and the construction of a new petrochemical and petroleum terminal to be operational in second quarter 2015 .

Enterprise Crude Oil Terminal: following the 2012 startup, an additional 0.9 MMBbls of storage capacity is expected to be in service in the second quarter of 2014 for a total 6.0 MMBbls of crude oil storage capacity. The facility covers 187 acres

Oiltanking: $200m investment to build 4.2 million barrels of new crude oil storage capacity and pipelines connecting to nearby refineries.

Odfjell is adding 10 tanks to its Bayport site by the first quarter of 2014. The facility currently has 100 storage tanks for natural gas liquids derivative chemicals.

Houston refineries are processing increasing domestic shale oil production within their existing capacity by reducing or completely stopping importing similar foreign crude. However, these refineries are very sophisticated, having made large investments in equipment to process heavy and sour (high sulfur) crudes from Mexico, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and others to take advantage of increasing production and lower prices for those crude grades. Associated natural gas production from shale oil is the major factor for keeping a lid on natural gas prices in the US today and in the nearby future. The other associated gases are ethane, propane and butane and they are also experiencing an oversupply as traditional demand and transport infrastructure catches up. Propane and butane can be condensed into liquid form by applying pressure and moved in pressurized vessels or through moderate refrigeration. Ethane and natural gas (methane) can only be liquefied through very low temperature refrigeration at much higher cost. The lightest portion of the liquid produced is called condensate and is composed of gasoline-like hydrocarbons but not suited for today’s car engines; therefore, it must be upgraded at a refinery or find other uses in petrochemicals or as diluents for heavy oils. Houston refineries and petrochemical plants are undergoing modifications to handle larger amounts of the light crude oil from US shale production or to manufacture higher value goods using domestic, low cost natural gas and other hydrocarbons produced “associated” to shale oil. Independent liquid storage facilities receive and transfer crude oil, condensate, liquefied propane and refined products for third parties, like a warehouse. There are several large such facilities in the Houston Ship Channel that offer enhanced service through excellent and expanding access to pipelines, rail, interstate highway and waterway, together with collocation with the largest oil refining and petrochemical complex in the US. These facilities are also being expanded to handle the increased demand and they require significant real estate. Some projects underway include: Kinder Morgan’s: o Battleground Oil Specialty Terminal (Bostco): A $485 million new facil-


The Shale renaissance is expected to have a long life: A long-term energy outlook released on Nov. 12 predicts the U.S. will top Saudi Arabia and Russia as the world’s leading oil producer by 2015. The report, published by the International Energy Agency, based in France, attributed this prediction to technological advances in shale drilling such as hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, which allow drillers to explore unreached shale plays. “United States performance has consistently overshot most projections to date and it is possible that more resources will be found and developed to sustain production at a higher level and for longer than we project,” the IEA said in the report.

Houston Commercial Real Estate (CRE) Outlook by David Luther, V.P. and Regional Manager Marcus & Millichap Presented at Houston CCIM monthly luncheon, 11/14/13

In General: • We are seeing far more Texas buyers (54% of total deals) in this up-cycle-in the past out of state buyers were more dominant • We are seeing generally about a 430 basis point spread on our graph comparing cap rates to 10 year treasury yields • Investors in CRE in Texas overall are bullish, as are lenders-Investors are “hungry” • Local banks prefer lending to “local” developers • REITS are disposing of non-core assets Multi-Family: • Lots of “covered land plays”, i.e. older MF units being bought for the land… especially projects with good locations but which are 25-50 years old and lower density

• Some “value-add plays”, with B units being upgraded to A, where the yield potential is greater than C to B • The deal making is spreading to smaller cities across Texas now, and to secondary and tertiary markets within the bigger cities • There are few distress sales at this stage in the cycle

Office/Industrial: • Office-industrial sector is attracting cross-over investors experienced in other sectors of CRE • Lots of new development in this sector as oil & gas support firms bulk up their operations and need more space Hotel:

Retail: • Activity spreading to secondary and tertiary markets • Retail “covered ground” activity, i.e. older less productive properties being bought for the land, to be redeveloped as retail or other asset class • High competition for single tenant deals is driving yields down and is driving some investors to other asset classes • Some “cross-over investors” none theless are coming into the retail sector

• The franchisors are aggressive in selling “flags”, sometimes cannibalizing hotels already in place in their own family of brands • Oil & gas demand has pushed hotel occupancy and rates to stratospheric levels in some very small and remote markets in South and West Texas, and new development is underway there • There has been much activity in recent years with large private equity firms buying and operating some of the largest hotel chains-some of

David Luther these chains, having been “taken private”, are now on the verge of “going public” once again Investor Concerns in All Segments: • Interest rates are poised to return to “normal” ranges, i.e. higher • Land in prime markets is less available, and when it is available, it is now very pricy • Infrastructure costs are rising • Rising property taxes are feared • Changing tenant / user demands • Rising labor and construction material costs

Clint Duncan of Transwestern made the following comments about Houston’s Multi-Family (MF) Market at the recent O’Connor & Associates luncheon: • It’s a good time to be a buyer OR a seller • Class A projects running at 90% occupancy with rising rates, in spite of new supply coming on line • 6-8% rent growth in last year, but this should “cool” with increasing Clint Duncan new supply…we have had four years of upward trending rents • Transwestern and their investors focus more on sales of B & C apartments because that’s where higher, stable yields are to be found • The CMBS market is stepping up to securitize packages of multi-family deals that fit their criteria • There are some value added plays still going on, although


lender-held properties on the market are diminishing. One Clear Lake area deal was recently bought for $11,000 per unit and sold for $40,000 • Financing rates are rising-example was given of one project which locked rate at 4.25 at beginning of summer on a loan which would be priced today at 5.0% • Most submarkets in Greater Houston are good…exceptions are Greenspoint and Antoine-West Gulf Bank, where there is almost flat rate growth and occupancy around 80% • Lots of investment transactions of MF projects in recent years:  76 in 2009; 101 in 2010; 150 in 2011; 206 in 2012; 130 to date in 2013.  [Lots of happy brokers!] • Booming office markets are mirrored by heavy MF development:  Energy Corridor, Woodlands, Inner Loop “re-fill”, etc., where office and MF development is strong • Equity players in MF segment getting leery:  18,000 units under construction and 20,000 more proposed, although many of the “proposed” will never get out of the ground

• Project costs going up due to tight labor-ExxonMobil construction site near Woodlands, for example, has guard gates to keep out contractors who might poach labor • Labor costs are pushing up single family home costs as well, as sub-contractors struggle to find workers, with the competition for them coming from the oil patch • Now outside investors are coming to Houston to “get in on the action” and are paying very high prices for local MF projects • Net addition to MF supply is unclear, given huge numbers of MF units being razed in current Houston economic cycle Summary: pent-up demand and Houston’s growing economy has led to increased MF housing demand and higher than ever rental rates; after spurt of construction to meet this demand, investors are starting to pause to evaluate future supply/demand equation; Houston’s economy is slowing a bit, so caution is warranted.

COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE BUSINESS FUNDAMENTALS 1. Be very aware of what you do, how it affects others … and how it looks to others. 2. Understand your weaknesses and build your business tools to accommodate them. 3. This is a “technical business;” take an educated approach to it. 4. The clients’ needs are the focus; it’s not about what YOU want. 5. Work hard, work smart, over a long period of time, in the same commercial real estate marketplace. 6. Never lose the information you have learned …. on EVERY deal. 7. Be very, very careful of how you spend your money; things change quickly. I could go into much more detail on each of the above but I won’t, because anyone who reads this with interest will know what I am talking about, without additional explanation. I am, however, going to pass on a SECRET here … one which we probably all know on some level but may not really be paying attention to: The Deal Fairy! In everyone’s life, there are moments (maybe waking up in the middle of the night, maybe while driving, etc.) when something occurs to you about a person, a property, a situation, etc., and you think “…maybe I should call, follow up, etc. on this…”, and then you forget it and don’t. What just happened is – the Deal Fairy landed on your shoulder and whispered in your ear about this situation. Whether you listen to him/her (not sure!) is up to you. What I have learned is: always, always, always stop, write it down, and MAKE that call! It is your subconscious working for you. Consistently, I have found that the call bears results which many times makes the difference between an average year’s earnings and a really good year!
