TAG Industrial Watch: May 28, 2022

Amazon continues to make headlines with its recent announcement that it plans to sublease about 10 million square feet of surplus warehouse space and may vacate nearly 30 million square feet (Bisnow). If Amazon’s sudden glut of space is indicative of a market peak, it begs the question of who is at the most risk. Of the 3.5 billion square feet of industrial space delivered in the U.S. over the last decade, 75 percent has been concentrated in big-box warehouses of at least 150,000 square feet (CoStar). While the shallow-bay industrial community will not be immune to any correction, smaller warehouses should fare better as the economy confronts higher interest rates.
