In Amazon era, warehouses and industrial real estate extend hot streak - Curbed

In Amazon era, warehouses and industrial real estate extend hot streak - Curbed: One of the most consistent performers in the real estate world, industrial and warehouse space continues to grow at a steady pace, according to a new report, and seems poised to benefit from increased prices, low supply, and the boom in e-commerce.

According to a new industrial market analysis from Cushman & Wakefield, demand for the sector in the second quarter of 2018 “continued to be impressive and broad-based.” Every segment is in growth mode, every region performed well (especially the Inland Empire, Chicago, and Dallas/Fort Worth), rent increased 7.2 percent nationally, and net absorption of new space is on pace to rank among one of the top five years on record.
