The changing landscape of e-commerce has made industrial the most favored investment sector for three years running. It has brought about the demand for “last mile” distribution centers for various industries, not just your traditional e-commerce retailers. Our panel of experts in industrial will discuss the demand for infill and last mile distribution facilities. This significant trend has been led by e-commerce companies like Amazon looking for same day delivery and by food companies looking to support local restaurants. They will discuss which locations are desirable for these users and what building characteristics are important to them. In addition, strong locations in growing metro areas have been typically supply constrained. That coupled with lower perceived risk will continue to drive demand for the rest of 2018. But how long will this upward trend last and where will the demand in this sector take us next? In this session, our expert panelists will discuss: the outlook for the sector; significant trends including infill and “last mile” distribution facilities and more; and the opportunities and challenges facing the sector.
