  • PW's Q2 2015 Industrial Market Overview

    The overall amount of vacant space in the Greater Chicagoland Industrial market continued

    to decrease at the mid-year mark of 2015. An uptick in tenant demand during the second

    quarter contributed to an improved rate of 7.82% of 1.2 billion square feet of industrial

    inventory remaining vacant throughout Chicagoland, Northwest Indiana, and Southeast

    Wisconsin. The vacancy rate of the Greater Chicago Metro market, excluding the

    submarkets of Northwest Indiana and Southeast Wisconsin, fell fourteen basis points since

    the previous quarter to 7.73%, the lowest level since the first quarter of 2007 when it

    decreased to 7.68%.

  • CASE STUDY ~ BUDAPEST, HUNGARY

     

    At the start of this project, Emerson occupied approximately 27,800 square feet of office/assembly space in Hermina Towers located in Budapest, Hungary with a lease expiration date coming due on April 2, 2015.  Not only were they on pace to outgrow their current footprint but more importantly it wasn't the most efficient layout for their operation.  Therefore Paine Wetzel (“PW”) was engaged to assist in evaluating relocating to a larger facility or finding a creative solution within the existing premises resulting in a more efficient layout all while keeping costs down.
