Dallas-Fort Worth is seeing heightened activity in the industrial space, according to a just released study from Cushman & Wakefield.

According to the report which looked at first quarter data::

• Net absorption for the first quarter of 2019 stands at 5.2 million square feet (Note: Cushman & Wakefield defines absorption as when the tenant takes occupancy.)

The study notes that the Dallas-Fort Worth area currently has 30.1 million square feet of industrial space under construction, which marks the first time that DFW has surpassed 30 million square feet of product under construction. Development activity is focused on Alliance (7.4 million square feet), DFW Airport (5.6 million square feet), Great Southwest (4.8 million square feet), according to the report.

• During Q1 2019, nearly 5.1 million square feet of industrial space was delivered.

Although there is in excess of 30 MSF currently under construction, over half (15 MSF) of the total is preleased, leaving 15 MSF of available speculative product.
