Development of office, warehouse/industrial and retail spaces is a powerful economic engine, building communities, creating jobs and advancing the economy.
Developing real estate from start to finish can be a very exciting career choice. Developers are entrepreneurs who oversee, plan and control projects from start to finish, often responsible for commercial real estate projects which may include office, retail, leisure and warehouse/industrial projects. The impact of new development of commercial real estate – office, industrial, warehouse and retail – has grown to support 9.2 million American jobs and contributes $1.14 trillion to the U.S. GDP in 2019 and generated $396.4 billion in salaries and wages.
