REmark – Record Construction During 2023

As the Pandemic-related supply chain bottlenecks finally eased during the third quarter of 2023, developers were able to deliver the long-awaited industrial product demanded by tenants. A quarterly record of 13.1 million square feet were delivered, which surpassed the previous quarterly record of 9.7 million square feet set in the second quarter of 2022. An additional 16.1 million square feet are projected to be completed by the end of 2023, which would bring the 2023 newly constructed square-footage to 42.2 million square feet by year’s end.

8.3 million square feet of industrial deliveries are projected for 2024, a slower year for development due to a slowdown in construction starts. This, coupled with 32.3 million square feet of new leasing activity through third quarter, should cause vacancy to tighten during the first half of 2024 as tenants begin to occupy new space.
