  • With over 1.3 million sq. ft. of industrial space currently in development and close to 1.0 million sq. ft. in net absorption year-to-date. The market remains a hub for warehouse and distribution space, posting consistent gains in absorption every quarter despite word of a potential slowdown in leasing and inflation.
  • Leasing activity remains healthy, although, it has been made up of smaller deals. The second-quarter net absorption came in at 404,703 sq. ft. and was comparable to quarterly totals registered at the height of the pandemic during 2021. The overall outlook remains positive for the Broward market.
