PW'S Q4 2014 INDUSTRIAL MARKET OVERVIEW

In analysis, many submarkets reported compacting vacancy rates, as increasing demand coupled with limited space returning to the market in the fourth quarter. Submarkets showing notable vacancy improvements year-over-year include Chicago South (1.91%; 7.83% from 9.74%), the I-55 Corridor (1.79%; 8.91% from 10.70%), and West Cook (1.72%; 8.71% from 10.43%). The Northwest Indiana and Southeast Wisconsin submarkets followed suit, reporting substantial vacancy rate improvements.

The economic recovery and the rise of e-commerce and supply chain logistics in the Midwest will contribute to this trajectory of vacancy rate improvement in 2015.
