DALLAS (CBRE) – Dallas is emerging as a major global destination for capital, ranking seventh on the list of top ten global cities for commercial real estate investment, according to CBRE’s Global Investor Intentions Survey 2015.

Dallas is one of five U.S. cities in the top ten, with San Francisco at number three, New York at number five, Los Angeles at eight and Seattle at nine.

London retained its position as the top city for investment, while other gateway cities such as Tokyo, Sydney and Paris remained in the top ten.

Dallas saw an increase in investor interest, moving up from 5 percent in the 2014 survey to 14 percent this year.

"The Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex is leading the nation in job growth and is enjoying a sustained period of economic expansion," said Gary Carr, Vice Chairman with CBRE Capital Markets. "Centrally located with two major airports, DFW is capitalizing on our pro-business state government, favorable tax climate, low cost of doing business and access to a well-educated population. DFW is emerging into a true global city and attracting increasing capital investment from all over the globe."

The report also shows global real estate investors remain confident and their intentions are expansionary, with more than half planning to increase their acquisitions in 2015; globally, 53 percent of investors plan to increase their purchases this year.
