  • At 5.8%, overall vacancy in the submarket is at its lowest ever

Northeast Atlanta Industrial Submarket Q1 2021 Overview

Solid occupancy gains in the first quarter have resulted in Northeast Atlanta's overall vacancy rate dipping below 6% for the first time in the submarket's history.

The majority of the submarket's absorption took place in the Gwinnett County subarea, and also came from tenants occupying under 200,000 square feet.

Steady demand for industrial warehouse space has resulted in Northeast's construction activity increasing by just over 2 million square feet from last quarter. The foreseeable future for the submarket is greatly positive as occupancy levels are expected to continue increasing through the end of the year.
