How CRE can Bring Positive Transformation in Industrial Real Estate

Although construction in several areas either stalled or stopped entirely, industrial building construction is vital this year.

FREMONT, CA: Various sectors got severely harmed by the pandemic, including travel and tourism, hospitality and entertainment, and real estate development. Industrial real estate indeed progressed farther into the future than it had in times of stability. At the same time, other asset types such as office and retail battled with stay-at-home orders and virtually no traffic.It's because e-commerce is now growing for a generation and fueled by next-day and sometimes same-day delivery and curbside pick-up — two characteristics that consumers who are stuck at home find incredibly appealing.

Although construction in several areas either stalled or stopped entirely, industrial building construction is vital this year.

  • Industrial Properties Offer Investors More Stability in Unstable Environments

The term "industrial real estate" encompasses a wide range of industries, businesses, and applications. Several of those sectors faced obstacles that they had never encountered before during the pandemic, like industrial plants working with fewer workers on the floor due to social distancing regulations.

However, many of these enterprises were able to continue operating since the nature of the work was deemed necessary. Some firms even prospered as a result of the economic downturn. As a result, internet merchants, order fulfillment centers, transportation, and logistics firms weren't just busy but also increasing, while more customers stayed at home and ordered online.

  • Good News for Increased Demand: Building Industrial Buildings is quick enough

Industrial areas, like the warehouses, are indeed the fastest and easiest to create whenever it concerns industrial buildings, only with the usual warehouse requiring less than three months to finish. That's terrific news since e-commerce solutions have become a necessary element of daily life virtually overnight.

  • Most Industrial Space to Hit Market in 5 Years

Can the production that comes online this year be more than enough to meet all of this consumption? It won't be enough for lack of effort if it doesn't work out. Three hundred forty-two million square feet of industrial space will be built for the year, up 24percent from the previous year and the highest in the last five years. All of that space will be scattered among over 1,000 properties, covering an area the size of Chicago's O'Hare Airport.

During times of economic instability, industrial real estate appears to be a relatively more stable investment. During the epidemic, that's also the case, with a steady income and predictable investment returns. Meanwhile, demands for data centers, often housed in warehouse-style buildings, are expected to rise.
