TAG Industrial Watch: September 4, 2021

“The boom in e-commerce and industrial real estate is beginning to trickle down into the niche sector of industrial outdoor storage properties. Also known as industrial service facilities, these concrete paved or crushed rock surfaced properties are typically used for equipment storage, bulk material storage and distribution, fleet vehicle storage, and increasingly valuable shipping containers. Vacancy rates on outdoor storage facilities usually run between 2% – 3.5%, much lower than the overall industrial market at 5% – 6% (Commercial Property Executive). Historically, these properties don’t trade hands often, but that may start to change. Recently, an off-market sale of a 50-acre storage yard in the Chicago market grabbed headlines (Globe St.). As imports continue their historic streak, the boom in industrial outdoor storage properties may just be underway.” -Adam Abushagur
