Industrial Watch: October 19, 2019

“Smaller warehouses (120,000 SF or less) are in demand for the industrial real estate sector. Construction for smaller industrial assets is down, reflecting low supply. This is good news for rental rates, which have increased twice as much as rents for larger warehouse spaces. Those targeting the smaller assets are the e-commerce and logistics golden children looking for last mile properties that are close to consumers. This trend is popular in urban and suburban areas. Rents are only expected to increase, as e-commerce itself will increase. Light industrial facilities are posing the question, ‘Is bigger really better?’”
