Nation’s second strongest industrial market based on net absorption and construction deliveries. Job creation is supporting median income increases that encourage household formations and boost retail spending. E-commerce, wholesale trade and third-party logistics firms’ response to escalated consumer spending will be expansion, with companies bolstering payrolls and occupying more space. Industrial growth continues to fuel development, with five submarkets each slated to welcome more than 1 million square feet of new space this year.
Out-of-state investors flood the market. Robust leasing activity and yields higher than coastal markets continue to lure buyers to the centralized Metroplex. An influx of California and Massachusetts-based firms will expand the buyer pool beyond the number of available listings, driving pricing and competition for warehouses and distribution centers. In the city of Dallas, properties near the airport and Stemmons Freeway, industrial-heavy areas, will garner the most attention.
