North American Demand for Big-Box Facilities Remains High in the First Half of 2017

Presented by Colliers the Industrial Logistics & Transportation Solutions 2017 Midyear Big-Box Review and Outlook offers an overview of North American big-box activity in the first half of 2017.

Key takeaways from this report include:

  • Driven by the growth of e-commerce, the North American big-box sector kicked off 2017 with vacancy rates at all-time lows and asking rents and under-construction product at all-time highs. At midyear 2017, leasing activity and net absorption are near the pace of the same period in 2016.
  • On the investment side, big-box capitalization rates remained at a record-low 5% in the first half of the year. While demand remains strong in core markets, the decreased amount of big-box product to purchase in these areas has pushed investors into secondary markets.
  • As we look ahead, the big-box sector seems poised for continued growth because of a strong U.S. economy, robust seaport activity and the rise of e-commerce, which should keep fundamentals strong for the foreseeable future.
