We Have some of the Region’s Best-Placed Commercial-Industrial Properties
Within the category of commercial properties, some sites are zoned for commercial for-profit business enterprise in general – such as restaurants, retail stores and entertainment venues. Industrial properties are different; they are a specialized type of commercial property.
Commercial-industrial properties are typically set aside by local zoning authorities for particular types of business operations that may include light or heavy manufacturing facilities, warehouses, and industrial and research parks. This is one of the ways local governments plan for and help control future growth of business and commerce in their communities.
There are many factors to consider when your growing business requires a new industrial facility to expand into.
- Do you lease an existing industrial property?
- Develop or redevelop and construct on an industrial lot in a business park?
- Acquire farmland on the market and start your expansion project from scratch?
In business development planning, it’s important to have someone on your team who understands how industrial real estate development projects work. A ground-up construction process on a parcel of empty acreage is a completely different undertaking than a retrofit of an existing warehouse or distribution center.
There are different requirements for dealing with industrial commercial projects as opposed to more general commercial undertakings. These can range from specialized floor plan requirements to the often more stringent regulatory requirements associated with industrial operations.
The design/plan process of this type of CRE construction project requires your general contractor is proficient at design/planning for specialized equipment or HVAC systems with special features for businesses that need things like warehousing with cold storage or humidity control. This is why it’s integral to have the right commercial property brokers, developers and engineers working with you.
The Future of Commercial-Industrial Industry in Our Region is Bright
It’s been less than 25 years since Amazon became more than an online bookstore, and boy has it completely revolutionized the way we shop. Whether businesses or individuals, most of the country now relies on e-commerce to some extent. This has resulted in a serious increase in demand for quality, well-located industrially-zoned land and warehouse space, which our portfolio is full of.
Cincinnati, Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky are all seeing an influx of distribution giants into the area, as this location is ideal for businesses looking to grow into and access the Midwest, South, Southeast, and Mid-Atlantic regions via freight and/or the conveniently-located CVG international airport. Existing warehouse vacancy is at an all-time low, creating opportunities for CRE investors and expanding businesses alike.
With thousands of acres of developable and pre-developed land that is zoned light-industrial, our portfolio provides options for anything from a manufacturing center build in one of our business parks to a speculative warehouse build on our empty parcels adjacent to the airport. As e-commerce quickly eclipses in-person shopping, the Cincinnati area is poised to absorb and promote this growth.
We’ve Acquired and Developed Top Industrial Sites for Over Eight Decades
Since our founding in 1935 as a farm brokerage, Schueler Group has collected some of the region’s most valuable parcels of land for industrial use along major interstates, including I-71, I-75, I-275, I-70 and I-675. With our extensive background in land development, we can help you put together the best parcels along the Cincinnati-Dayton and Northern Kentucky corridor.
The great characteristics of developable land zoned for industrial use in our area is that the land development process, including access, regrading and connecting utilities, is simple, making it much less expensive than land development in other areas. And industrial construction projects are huge undertakings, so devoting as much of the budget to the construction process itself is important.
Whether you need good visibility from the highway for accessibility, a huge swath of land for warehouses, or are interested in an existing industrial property for sale that you’d like to renovate, we can help. Our real estate brokerage firm, Henkle Schueler & Associates manages more than 3,000 acres across our more than 20 business parks of undeveloped industrial real estate. We’ve helped develop and construct numerous major industrial projects for satisfied clients in multiple states.
We’ll find you the best property for your industrial development needs, and our integrated divisions will take you through each step of the process – from leasing and site management to land development and construction.
