Tim Ballard Ballard: “You can see the result of all of this capital pushing into the California coastal markets. We are concerned that this is not sustainable over the long term.”

NEWPORT BEACH, CA—In many coastal California markets, there is a tremendously deep investor base focused on California, often resulting in pricing that has outpaced fundamentals, Buchanan Street Partners’ president Tim Ballard tells GlobeSt.com. As we recently reported, the firm has purchased a 224,000-square-foot transit-adjacent office tower in Denver’s largest office submarket and is eyeing other markets outside of California. We spoke with Ballard about what is drawing the firm to these other markets and what their buying strategy is for these other regions.
