Houston, TXAvison Young today released its industrial market report for the firm’s Houston office for the fourth quarter of 2019. The industrial sector remains the strongest asset class in Houston with 32 projects delivered for the last quarter of 2019 totaling 4 million square feet (msf).

“Industrial business parks are popping up in the outskirts of Houston due primarily to higher land prices within the city, commented Grant Hortenstine, a Vice President in the firm’s Houston office. “A lot of these projects are currently under construction and more are on the way.”

The under-construction total climbed to 19.1 msf in the fourth quarter, up from 16.2 msf reported in the previous quarter. Warehouse and distribution facilities represent 90% of the under-construction projects. For the last six years, Houston has boasted an average 14 msf of construction, making it one of the top dominant markets for industrial supply in the U.S.
