San Diego’s industrial market continues record-breaking demand
Demand in the industrial and flex property segments continues to be the healthiest of all commercial real estate sectors. Industrial and flex vacancies have reached all-time low rates of 2.07% and 4.82%, respectively. Industrial demand remains concentrated in warehouse/distribution space while flex demand continues to be driven by a life science sector which has accelerated to record levels. Robust demand that has far out-paced new supply will continue to keep vacancies at tightening levels over the next year.
