Chicago Industrial Fundamentals Remain Strong Despite Moderation

Chicago’s industrial outlook remains bright, but economic pressures are expected to cause some moderation, as interest rate hikes and rising construction costs have slowed new groundbreakings and contributed to a pullback from the historic absorption levels of 2021 and 2022.
