Rising construction costs squeeze housing supply - Housing demand in major cities and urban areas is high, but the price to build is expensive, driving prices continually higher. According to analysis presented by Pacific Union Insights, a lack of new construction is a major supply problem facing many desirable and economically vibrant U.S. cities, with California experiencing one of the most severe shortages. California’s regulatory environment poses many obstacles to new construction, causing land prices, labor costs, and home prices to appreciate well above the national average. Millennials in particular are struggling to save enough money for a home since prices are rising faster than their pay.

The Apple effect: Cupertino retail project for sale at $1,276 per square foot - Saich Way Station, a 15,673-square-foot strip center at Stevens Creek Boulevard and Saich Way, is on the market for $20 million, according to an announcement from brokerage Marcus & Millichap. The site is notable not only because it is so close to the Apple mother ship, but also because it represents new-construction retail in Cupertino, where new projects are rare.

Palo Alto, Atherton crack top 10 priciest ZIP codes in the U.S. - The 25 priciest ZIP codes in the U.S. are top-heavy with Bay Area addresses: Eight of the most expensive concentrations of residential real estate are on the Peninsula or in the South Bay.

In San Francisco, Dedicated Locals and Tech Patrons Are Fueling an Art World Resurgence - At about one million dollars per bedroom, buying a house leaves little money, one imagines, for an art collection, and scant space to install one. But the Bay Area and Silicon Valley now make up the second largest concentration of billionaires in the world, and the art establishment has for some time been wagering that some of that wealth would find itself back into the community, drive a new collector base, and counteract the crippling impact of rising costs.
