Demand for E-Commerce Logistics Centers Can Translate to EB-5 Success December 9, 2020
To date, over 1,000 CMB investors have seen tremendous success in their EB-5 pursuits by subscribing into one of the 21 CMB EB-5 Partnerships featuring Hillwood industrial/logistics centers. Across those Partnerships, CMB’s investors have achieved 766 I-526 approvals for conditional residency, 133 I-829 approvals for permanent residency, and 216 investors have seen a return of their original capital investment.
In August, Forbes reported that e-commerce had seen a 129% year-over-year growth margin in the U.S. and Canada. They also reported that by the end of 2020, global e-commerce sales are expected to balloon to $4.2 trillion. In October, Yahoo Finance noted that ‘Warehouses, fulfillment centers, and other industrial properties are the one bright spot in the commercial real estate industry, which has otherwise been pummeled by the coronavirus pandemic.’ In an earlier article, Yahoo Finance also reported that, according to the IBM U.S. retail index, ‘The pandemic has accelerated the shift away from physical stores to digital shopping by roughly five years.’
High demand for e-commerce infrastructure
The COVID-19 pandemic has profoundly changed shopping habits in 2020. As Americans spend more time at home, e-commerce retailers have seen a surge in demand for items to be dropped off on a customer’s doorsteps. The decades-long shift away from brick-and-mortar retail has accelerated, and the rest of the American economy is scrambling to adjust. As a result, e-commerce infrastructure such as warehouses and fulfillment centers are in extremely high demand.
We’re very excited to see the unprecedented growth opportunity for industrial logistics investments in 2020. We also believe these may be the safest EB-5 opportunities available to foreign nationals considering immigration by investment to the United States.
