Dayton Industrial Market Experiences Flurry of Build-to-Suit Activity

  
  
  
Dayton Industrial Influx of Build-to-suit activity

Mark Dlott, Senior Vice President, Principal of our Dayton office was recently asked to write an article about the current state of the Dayton industrial market. The article was originally published on 07/02/2014 on REBusinessOnline.com and in the print edition of Heartland Real Estate Business.

By Mark Dlott, SIOR

Dayton, Ohio, has had its struggles over the years transitioning from a predominantly automotive manufacturing economy to one with a more diverse base of industries such as transportation and logistics, aerospace technology, medical device manufacturing and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) development.

Throughout this tumultuous period, Dayton’s industrial commercial real estate market has had to adapt to the evolving needs of the new tenant mix. Part of that adaptation has led to the construction of several build-to-suits over the last 18 months.

This construction trend is being driven by companies opting for build-to-suit projects instead of purchasing existing properties due to their age, inadequate size or functional obsolescence such as inadequate ceiling heights. The trend is evident in the large amount of industrial space that has been delivered in recent years or is currently under construction in the Dayton market.

Speculative Industrial Construction in the Midwest

By Jarrett Hicks, Senior Research Analyst

In the Cincinnati/Dayton area, we are in the midst of a construction boom, especially in the industrial sector.  2.4 million SF is under construction in Dayton, while another 2.7 million SF is under construction in Greater Cincinnati.  For the first time in many years, multiple large bulk buildings are being built speculatively (“on spec”) at the same time.  VanTrust Real Estate is building 273,000 SF in Hebron, KY, while IDI Gazeley (formerly Industrial Developments International) is building 600,000+ SF buildings in Monroe, OH and Richwood, KY.

The Big Picture - U.S. Property Markets

Our Company’s (Cassidy Turley’s) national research division reports that U.S. economic fundamentals underpinning property markets are strong. With the harsh weather behind us, most indicators are revving up again. The performance of commercial real estate continued to be strong and uneven through the first quarter of this year. Apartment and industrial space continued to register large increases in demand, while office and retail continued to lag. During the first quarter of this year, office markets absorbed nearly 12 million square feet, a 21% decrease in demand from the fourth quarter of 2013 but a 63% increase over the first quarter of last year. U.S. vacancy remained unchanged at 15.4% as 10.5 msf of new office space was delivered to the market in the quarter, roughly matching absorption. There is clear evidence that new office construction is picking up, rising 31% over the same quarter last year.

Nearly $172 Million in Sales Volume, Reports Cassidy Turley Q4 Market Update

Sales volume in the Cincinnati multifamily market continues to skyrocket. In the first quarter of 2014, Cincinnati area multifamily units sold at a rate not seen in three years, with 4,144 units transacted for a total volume of nearly $172 million. The average sale price per unit was $41,441. Looking ahead, new deliveries should begin to outpace absorption in 2015, leveling out the vacancy rate somewhere between 2-3%.

Q1 2014 Dayton and Cincinnati Industrial Snapshot

By Jarrett Hicks, Senior Research Analyst

The industrial vacancy rate for the Cincinnati region has reached its lowest point in seven years. Low vacancy, combined with over 1.2 million square feet of positive net absorption and new construction are clear signs that the Cincinnati industrial market is extremely active and growing.   In 2014, new supply is projected to reach a six-year high.  Currently, 2.7 million square feet of industrial space is under construction across the Greater Cincinnati market, including 1.6 million square feet of speculative bulk warehouse product.  More large scale construction projects are expected to break ground in the next few months.

Q1 Sees Positive Absorption in Both Cincinnati and Dayton Office Markets

  
  
  
The Q1 2014 office market reports for Cincinnati and Dayton

By James Flick, Vice President, Research and Marketing

In Cincinnati, continuing job growth of 1.4% is positioning the commercial real estate market for a fourth consecutive year of positive absorption. Furthermore, while most areas in the Cincinnati region saw rental rates bottoming out, the Central Business District has experienced significant gross rent growth, 10.5%, since the first quarter of 2011. This is due to the delivery of Great American Tower in the second quarter of 2011, building conversions of antiquated class B offices to multi-family, and increases in building operating expenses. Actual rent growth is expected on the horizon for the rest of the Cincinnati market this year.
