Despite lots of talk about a potential economic slowdown and upsets in trade, market fundamentals in the third quarter of the year continue to perform well. There are no grey skies for the industrial sector: Demand is still outstripping supply and rents continue to escalate along both coasts. According to JLL’s most recent industrial report, year-to-date deliveries reached 192 million square feet in the third quarter, moving the total industrial inventory to nearly 13.4 billion square feet.
