Atlanta Real Estate Market Trends | Northwest Atlanta Industrial Q2 2020

Download Report

Northwest Atlanta posted its strongest quarter of absorption in a year, absorbing 351,185 square feet in Q2.

Key Takeaways

  • This quarter's occupancy gains came from a few large tenant move-ins, specifically from BoxyCharm (215,000 SF); Chick-fil-A (200,000 SF) and Best Warehouse (139,000 SF)
  • Vacancy was level from last quarter as absorption levels closely matched delivered inventory. Chick-fil-A's build-to-suit was the largest building to come online this quarter.
  • Construction levels increased in Q2 as developers race to capture demand in the submarket. Manufacturing and logistics are the most active industries in Northwest Atlanta currently.
  • Rental rates in the submarket remain the highest in the Atlanta industrial market. 
  • The occupancy losses anticipated for Northwest Atlanta did not occur in Q2, but are likely to show in Q3. Q4 should see a rebound.
