While we tout the diversity that characterizes our office tenants here in Dallas-Fort Worth because of the strength and stability it brings, our industrial tenant base shares a similar diverse make-up.

The chart below highlights the breakdown of industrial tenants by major Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) category, illustrating the wide variety of tenants that shape our market.  We have also included some of the more recognizable tenants that fall into the larger… Read More

Our Dallas/Fort Worth industrial market has been performing extremely well.

We’ve pointed out on several occasions that despite record construction, absorption has been keeping pace. While we thought there might be a slight near-term mismatch between supply and demand, causing vacancy to rise gradually, that has not happened. In fact, as you can see below, vacancy remains at close to its all-time low.

Given where we stand today, we believe the fourth quarter will… Read More

A couple of weeks ago, we posted a chart showing office rent growth over time in Dallas. We got such strong positive feedback, we thought we’d showcase the same for industrial.

Interestingly, the numbers come out a bit different.  Whereas office is still at or still close to peak increases, rent gains for the industrial sector have come off their 2014 and 2015 peaks and begun to moderate for the majority of submarkets.  Given… Read More

The last few quarters, our region’s industrial market has been on a building boom.  With 23 million square feet now under construction, we are well above any average.  The obvious warning here is that supply and demand must remain in balance – and record construction must be matched with record absorption.

Last year we did that.

In anticipation of this blog, I started thinking about exactly what was “innovation”.  Of course it is often a new method or idea that can revolutionize – be it a tool or a process, it is commonly applied to technology these days.  Innovation is much more than that.  Social innovation can transform the way we look at the world – and disruptive innovation, in its truest sense, can turn what we know… Read More

Now that the first quarter industrial numbers are compiled and published, we’ve had an opportunity to take a look at how DFW is stacking up.  Overall, vacancy is still near the low point and rent pressures continue.

The one number that does jump out is our construction pipeline.  At 24 million SF, we are at the top of what we have seen historically.  We can counter the high level of construction with arguments… Read More

With congestion issues and seaport gridlocks plaguing the transportation industry, air freight volumes are back on the rise. According to JLL’s annual Airport Outlook Report, global air cargo saw a 4.5 percent annual increase in 2014 and the forecast calls for 5 percent growth in 2015. This has created a flurry of leasing, building and investment in the distribution center real estate surrounding key U.S. airports. And as a result, rents are rising for… Read More

Luftaufnahme von MonheimThe headlines are all talking about the construction going on in the Dallas-Fort Worth industrial market, currently there is about 16.6 million square feet underway.  That’s not a record breaking number, but it’s a good bit above the historic norm of about 10 million square feet per year.
