NEW YORK, Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/-- The U.S. commercial real estate (CRE) sector has continued its remarkable recovery this year but the pace of recovery faces headwinds in 2014, according to Deloitte's annual Commercial Real Estate Outlook, which was presented today at the organization's annual real estate industry conference in New York City.

"The commercial real estate sector has rebounded, thanks to an improving economy, strong investor demand for quality properties and limited new supply, and it is looking to build on this momentum," said Bob O'Brien, partner, Deloitte Services LP and head of Deloitte's real estate practice. "As 2014 approaches, the industry will face challenges stemming from government regulations, the limited availability of capital for certain properties and the impact of technology, which is becoming a driving force in every market segment--from retail centers to office space."
The Deloitte New York real estate conference drew more than 200 participants, including real estate developers, property managers, investors and construction and financing professionals. Similar events are planned for Chicago (Nov. 20), San Francisco (Nov. 21), Houston (Dec. 3), Dallas (Dec. 5), Washington, DC (Dec. 10), Atlanta (Dec. 12), Orange County (Dec. 17) and Los Angeles (Dec. 18).
Now in its 15th year, the Commercial Real Estate Outlook identifies the top trends that will shape the market in the year ahead, and is based on original research combined with the insights and first-hand experience of many of Deloitte's leading real estate practitioners.
