It was a strong year for industrial leases in South Florida, with the largest — for a Home Depot distribution center in Hialeah — topping 1 million square feet.

Land prices jumped as much as 30 percent in Miami-Dade and Broward counties in 2019, year-over-year, to more than $1 million an acre, said Steve Wasserman, executive managing director of Colliers International South Florida.

Rental rates for new industrial buildings rose 5 percent to 10 percent, to $7.50 per square foot to $8.50 per square foot, triple-net in Miami-Dade; and to $8 per square foot to $9 per square foot, triple-net in Broward, he said.

Demand and occupancy remained high, driven in part by e-commerce and the need for last-mile distribution centers, Wasserman said.

Here is The Real Deal’s list of the largest industrial leases signed in 2019.

Home Depot plans to occupy two buildings of 700,000 square feet and 400,000 square feet for its distribution center at Countyline Corporate Park, at Northwest 97th Avenue and Northwest 158th Street in Hialeah. Florida East Coast Industries’ Flagler Global Logistics, is developing the park.
