Industrial construction ramping up

Industrial developers had nearly 19 million square feet of space in production at the end of 2018, nearly double the amount underway at the start of the year. A year-end report from Colliers International said 60 projects were in the works at the end of 2018. This year could approach 2017’s industrial construction total of 24.6 million square feet completed. The boom could be attributed to heightened leasing activity: Some 65 percent of spec space built since 2013 has been filled, the report said. [Bisnow]
