RCD Research has compiled a list of 20 large hotel/motel and retail construction projects now in the planning stages. The list includes the Transbay Transit Center and Tower in San Francisco. It also includes several mixed-used developments planned in Connecticut, Kentucky and California.
California will begin to disburse funds for infrastructure projects that were postponed during the state's budget crisis, observers say. The Pooled Money Investment Board has re-opened $500 million in loan disbursements and has asked finance officials to create a list of road, levee and construction projects that need funding. However, the state must sell $4 billion in general obligation bonds next week in order for the funds to be released.
