Rosenberg and Regnery Industrial Team

Chicago corporate real estate advisers


Colliers International is the leader in global real estate services defined by our spirit of enterprise. Jack Rosenberg, a member of Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR), and Fred Regnery are leaders in Colliers’ corporate real estate practice. Major consumer product companies hire Jack and Fred throughout the country to represent them on real estate transactions.

Though Jack Rosenberg and Fred Regnery are based in Chicago, their practice takes them throughout North America with completed transactions from Hawaii to North Carolina and many points in between.

Jack and Fred pride themselves in being the real estate advisers that listens and delivers. They aggressively represent their clients’ interests while maintaining a good working relationship with the parties on the other side of the transaction.

Case studies and client letters demonstrate Jack and Fred’s experience with many of Colliers' largest clients.

A lease is often the second largest expenditure for a business after payroll, so it must be more than a cost center. They strive to make your real estate a competitive advantage.

2022 Q2 Chicago Industrial Big Box Report

Demand for Chicago’s big box industrial product totaled 5.1 million square feet during the second quarter of 2022, as measured by net absorption. While this figure was still strongly positive, it also represented the lowest quarterly total since the fourth quarter of 2020 and was nearly half of the record 9.7 million square feet recorded during the fourth quarter of 2021. Seven speculative big box buildings totaling 3.9 million square feet were completed between April and June, four of which were delivered vacant. As a result, the big box vacancy rate, which had plunged to an all-time low of 2.61 percent in March, increased for the first time in seven quarters, ticking up by 31 basis points to 2.92 percent.

2022 Q2 Chicago Industrial Market Report

Demand for space in Chicago’s industrial market matched the past two quarters as measured by net absorption, despite inflation at a 40-year high and economic uncertainty. Net absorption totaled 12.1 million square feet during the second quarter of 2022, slightly outpacing last quarter’s total of 11.7 million square feet. Build-to-suit completions played a slightly larger role during the quarter, contributing 3.3 million square feet to the quarter’s net absorption total.

2022 Q1 Chicago Industrial Big Box Report

Chicago’s big box industrial vacancy rate continued to tank during the first quarter of 2022, dropping by more than a full percentage point to 2.61 percent, a record low by a wide margin. Net absorption in the market’s biggest and most modern buildings has been astounding since the fourth quarter of 2020, totaling at least 5 million square feet each quarter for a grand total of 45 million square feet over the six quarter period. Net absorption totaled 6.7 million square feet during the first quarter of 2022 alone. Unprecedented new leasing activity and the delivery of large build-to-suit projects has been behind the record demand. With such a tight market, new development will strongly influence net absorption over the coming quarters.
