Fort Lauderdale industrial real estate market reports

Q3 2022

Leasing activity was up 13% in the third quarter and Fort Lauderdale managed more than 300,000 square feet (sf) of positive absorption, despite Amazon unleashing more than 900,000 sf of sublease space onto the industrial market, demonstrating the market’s resilience and continued popularity. The plug-and-play, high-quality nature of the new sublease availabilities will draw even more logistics-focused tenants to the market and the lease-up of these spaces will likely contribute to increased rates and positive absorption in the next few quarters.
