The thriving and vibrant city benefits from a diversified employment base that has fostered steady growth within the office sector, the driving force behind 11 consecutive quarters of positive absorption in the market. Currently the overall office vacancy rate is approximately 15%, a seven-year low. New developments and capital investments into existing buildings to entice younger companies has bolstered demand and increased asking rates. 

INDUSTRIAL

Indianapolis’ industrial real estate sector continues to grow with over 250 million square feet of space with approximately 7 million square feet of speculative development planned over the next year. Indianapolis boasts one of the lowest vacancy rates (3%) throughout the nation and the lack of supply continues to drive rent growth. It is an ideal location for industrial, manufacturing,and distribution uses as Indianapolis has more direct interstate access than any other city. Indianapolis’ labor market experiences continuous growth with major industrial parks located on key transportation lines.
