Industrial: The New Virtual Retail Storefront
The first quarter of 2020 will forever be marked as one of the most dynamic quarters in history for the industrial market throughout the Greater Tampa Bay region. As the 2020 year began, activity throughout (sales, leasing, construction) remained active and, in most cases, more active than year-end 2019. The flex market, albeit active for some time, began garnering more attention as tenants looked to potentially reduce costs from Class B office space into more affordable and comparable flex space. Interest rates were at near all-time lows, providing cost-effective financing that helped to bolster and carry on the 10-year record growth of development and investment activity experienced throughout the market. Unemployment in the region, the lowest in recent history and well below the national average, was championed by many in the local market.
