The value of North America's supply of commercial real estate grew by 5 percent to $4.2 trillion and is now clos- ing the gap with Europe, whose value remains at $4.4 trillion. North American stock is now 2 percent above its 2007 peak, and Mexico was among the global lead- ers, with the value of its commercial real estate stock growing by about 20 percent last year. For this year, commercial real estate investment in North America is expected to surpass $390 billion, exceeding the $373 billion peak in 2007. Global investors put about $633 billion into commercial real estate in 2014, up 20 percent year on year, the firm reports. About $291 billion of that was invested in North America. The momentum has continued into this year, with global volumes in the 12 months through the first quarter reaching a total of $653 billion.
