PwC, in conjunction with the Urban Land Institute (ULI), has released its 36th annual Emerging Trends in Real Estate® report–a publication that is one of the most highly regarded annual outlook publications within the real estate industry. This year’s edition has once again identified Boston among the top ten U.S. Cities for real estate investment. Carlos Febres-Mazzei, a Senior Vice President with CBRE/New England’s Capital Markets team, sat down with local NPR affiliate WGBH to discuss these findings and what they mean for the forecast of real estate investment here in Boston in 2015 and beyond.
