Parallel to the booming real estate market on the coast, which has been driven by a combination of increased tourism, investment opportunities and potential retirement, the commercial real estate in the central valley is thriving. Like the coastal market, the commercial real estate boom which is consuming the affluent suburbs of Escazu and Santa Ana, is a market which is being absorbed at record pace. A combination of national and international corporations are taking advantage of the favorable labor conditions in this area, with access to the most competitive world markets, highly educated work force, low cost of labor, and of course, the enticing lifestyle of Costa Rica, and are choosing the central valley as their headquarters.
Due to the increasing demand in commercial real estate, a series of world class developments have arisen to meet the expectations of the most demanding clients including HSBC, Citigroup, American Airlines and others. The bulk of these projects are located in the area of Escazu and Santa Ana, due to the fact that these areas are the center of the most affluent residential sector and home to area's most sought after hotels, creating a convenient business environment for host companies and their clients. Below you will find a list of the projects that are currently available for either lease or purchase, as well as the development parcels that are currently available for sale for those developers who are interested in this unique opportunity.
