A common baseball analogy used to explain where we are in the real estate cycle is “What inning are we in?” Regardless of the inning, in DFW's industrial market, it's looking like we're just wrapping up the first game of a doubleheader!
2017 was another respectable year for leasing activity in DFW industrial market. Throughout the first three quarters of 2017, the DFW industrial market has absorbed a staggering 17.1 msf and is poised to exceed 20 msf in 2017, for the second straight year!
DFW’s emergence as a premiere logistics hub can be clearly seen in the high level of job gains in the industrial-related categories of manufacturing, logistics, wholesale trade, and warehousing. Since 2010, DFW has added almost as many industrial jobs as the LA-Long Beach and Inland Empire areas. Which is particularly significant given that region’s preeminent position as a national distribution hub and that LA-Long Beach and the Inland Empire have a job base that is more than twice the size of DFW.
There is no doubt that e-commerce and innovation in supply chain and logistics management have had a huge impact on industrial development, investment and design. How will the industry continue to adapt?
