Hiffman Releases Third Quarter 2023 Industrial Market Report
NAI Hiffman is pleased to present the Third Quarter 2023 Industrial Market Report, an in-depth look at statistics for the Chicago industrial real estate markets.
Chicago Industrial Fundamentals Remain Strong Despite Moderation
Chicago’s industrial market remains bright, but economic pressures, elevated interest rates, and rising construction costs have slowed new groundbreakings and contributed to a pullback from the historic absorption levels of 2021 and 2022.
- Chicago recorded 6.4 million square feet of positive net absorption during the third quarter, bringing the year-to-date total to 15.1 million square feet.
- Overall vacancy measured 4.6% during the third quarter, the seventh consecutive quarter of sub – 5.0% overall vacancy.
- Demand for new, high-quality warehousing and distribution space continues to drive a robust pipeline, with 26.1 million square feet currently under construction.
- 26.1 MSF of new product has delivered through Q3, with an additional 16.1 million square feet projected to be delivered during the fourth quarter – which would put Chicago on track for a record year.
