U.S. industrial market Q1 2024 insights

The beginning of 2024 has seen subdued leasing, diminishing yet significant new developments, and rising vacancies nationwide. However, robust Port activity and strong pre-leasing indicators, alongside expiring pre-COVID leases, suggest an upturn as we move past a surplus of new supply. Rental rates are growing steadily, with a potential space shortage anticipated by early 2025. The industrial market is also poised for an earlier execution of leases due to potential East and Gulf Coast Port labor discussions impacting holiday inventory logistics. Meanwhile, investors and developers remain poised, balancing an aggressive Federal Reserve policy against the eagerness to capitalize on forthcoming opportunities.

U.S. Capital Markets Q1 2024 insights

The Capital Markets sector is grappling with decreased debt origination due to high interest rates, with a year-to-date (YTD) volume of $56.04 billion falling behind the first quarter of 2023, alongside a drop in active lenders. This decline is partly due to lenders' overexposure to troubled assets, offering chances for opportunistic buyers. A significant concern is the halt in regional bank lending, previously a mainstay for CRE financing, without a clear alternative. Equity markets are also struggling, with YTD investment sales at $29.64 billion across all sectors. Institutional investors are sidelined, deterred by the high cost of capital. Notably, there's a surge in funds aimed at opportunistic investments, with Blackstone raising a record $30 billion, targeting returns above 20%, indicating anticipation of a pricing rebound with potential interest rate cuts.

U.S. office market Q1 2024 insights

Early in 2024, direct available office space in the United States reached a decades-long high of 1 billion square feet. This increase can be partially attributed to a slowdown in large block leasing caused by occupiers’ hesitancy to commit to long term office strategies. Trophy properties, however, are significantly outperforming the market in terms of average lease lengths—currently 27.1% longer than the overall average.

Q4 2023 U.S. life sciences market overview

A slowdown in leasing activity within the lab/R&D sector coupled with a significant amount of speculative construction starts in early 2022 has given way to a surplus of supply across the country. Moreover, the rightsizing of smaller and midsize life science companies has led to a drastic uptick in sublease availability. While this supply injection is not expected to be absorbed in the near-term, leasing activity is anticipated to pick up in the next 12-18 months based on a variety of indicators, such as venture capital funding, M&A activity, and a less competitive labor market.
