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 Q4 Chicago Industrial Big Box Report

Developers Delivered Record Big Box Product in 2022 to Meet Demand. More big box buildings were completed during 2022 than any other time in the Chicago market’s history. Developers delivered 48 modern buildings 200,000 square feet or larger during the year totaling 25.5 million square feet. 35 of these deliveries totaling 17.2 million square feet were built on “spec” with no tenant commitments prior to construction. This was the greatest amount of speculative big box space to be completed in a calendar year, 46 percent greater than the previous record of 11.8 million square feet delivered in 2019. Despite strong leasing, this surge in development pushed the big box vacancy rate up during the final three quarters of 2022, increasing by 158 basis points from an all-time low of 2.61 percent to 4.19 percent.

2022 Q4 Chicago Industrial Market Report

Following a slight dip in demand during the third quarter, it picked right back up during the final quarter of the year, with net absorption totaling 9.9 million square feet between October and December. This brought the total for 2022 to 40.6 million square feet – the second greatest annual net absorption total in the market’s history just behind last year’s 44.9 million square feet and a 2022 total greater than any other industrial market in the country.

2022 Q3 Chicago Industrial Big Box Report

Big Box Leasing Stays Strong as Developers Push to Deliver New Product. Chicago’s big box industrial vacancy rate increased for the second quarter in a row, climbing by 65 basis points to 3.57 percent during the third quarter of 2022. After bottoming at a record low 2.61 percent during the first quarter of the year, speculative construction completions increased over the past six months, pushing the vacancy rate up. Unprecedented demand for big box space since the last quarter of 2020 combined with record low vacancy resulted in a need for new speculative product. During the third quarter alone, developers started construction on an impressive 31 big box buildings totaling 15.5 million square feet, bringing the total under construction to a record 63 buildings totaling 31.5 million square feet.

2022 Q3 Chicago Industrial Market Report

Rents Climb as Industrial Market Gets a Little Tighter. While industrial demand remained positive during the third quarter of 2022, the net absorption total of 6.9 million square feet was only 58 percent of the total recorded during each of the past three quarters and the lowest quarterly total since the fourth quarter of 2020. Despite falling off a bit, it remained above the 5-year quarterly average of 6.5 million square feet and was more indicative of how tight the market has become as opposed to a drop in industrial transaction activity.
