CBRE has released the Q2 2017 San Antonio Industrial MarketView, which is available for download at cbre.com/researchgateway. Below is a summary of key Q2 highlights.
New deliveries pushed total occupied stock to new highs and drove net absorption to just under one million sq. ft. year-to-date through Q2 2017.
Class A warehouse product saw well above 1.1 million sq. ft. in net move-ins over the last 90 days. However, several expected vacancies, most of which are in Class B and C buildings, lessened the net absorption bottom line.
Similar to what the market saw in 2016, new speculative deliveries added upward pressure to the market vacancy rate in Q2 2017. However, net absorption remained positive and industrial vacancy sat 100 basis points (bps) below the historical. Furthermore, 70% of total vacant space was attributed to Class B and C assets.
Weighted average asking rents for industrial (warehouse) product saw a push of $0.11 per sq. ft. compared to last quarter. Within these numbers, Class A anchored rents and rose to $5.34 per sq. ft. in Q2 2017 as new warehouse product entered the available pipeline.
The South submarket delivered 850,000 sq. ft. through a single built-to-suit development. The Northeast also saw more than 600,000 sq. ft. of deliveries, as far out as New Braunfels, with an occupancy of 33%.
San Antonio's regional economy and employment market continued to expand as industries added a seasonally adjusted 5,100 net jobs year-to-date and 22,400 year-over-year in May 2017.
