Look to Us for Your Industrial Property Needs
All industrial real estate is by definition commercial real estate – but not vice versa. And whether you’re thinking about buying, leasing, or building a factory, warehouse, processing plant or distribution center, it pays to have a real estate company on your team that knows not only office and retail, but also the industrial side of the commercial property market.
Our property listings for industrial use include acreage for sale or lease in over 20 business parks along primary interstates between Dayton, Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, as well as individual industrial buildings for sale or lease around the region. Looking to start from scratch? We also have swaths of empty acreage, including farmland, in great locations that are prime parcels for industrial development.
We have the best industrial real estate listings you’ll find on the Cincinnati-Dayton market, because we uniquely understand the goals of the local economies as well as the local geographies of the region.
Industrial Real Estate is Different
No two fields of commercial real estate are the same, even more so when we talk about industrial properties. Whether you’re looking for commercial land to develop or want to acquire an existing industrial property for sale, it pays to understand the differences between industrial real estate and other types of commercial real estate. These can range from:
- Extra zoning limitations and regulations
- Limits on leasing terms
- Lenders’ willingness to finance an industrial project
- Specific coding and regulations on construction and facility usage
Industrial projects also involve more issues of physical infrastructure to think about, such as whether its electrical system, roofing and HVAC meet your specifications. And the industrial real estate market is in some ways a separate entity from the overall commercial property market – for example, in how well it’s holding up during COVID-19.
Industrial Real Estate is the Risk-Resistant Future of CRE
When life came to a halt and later completely changed because of COVID, we as a society began to realize that dedicated office buildings and retail spaces might not be as essential as we once thought they were. Both these sectors of CRE have been hit hard by the changes COVID brought, and as far as office buildings go, those may never recover; employers around the country, large and small, are making work-from-home permanent, or at least hybrid.
That doesn’t mean office buildings are going to disappear, but it does mean for their future to be viable, they’ve got to slide over to the industrial side a bit. Flex buildings are on the rise. Built on acreage zoned for light industrial use, these spaces are flexible in more than a couple ways. A mix of office areas, open spaces, a hall of conference rooms, areas that could be retrofitted for manufacturing, inventory storage; these chimera buildings aren’t hap dash solutions; they’re a risk-resistant way to build.
While we can’t see a future where retail spaces disappear and morph nearly as much as office spaces, no one can deny that most of the money that runs through the retail sector nowadays does so online. E-commerce has exponentially increased the demand for warehouse space, so much so that in our area, we’ve seen an uptick in speculative industrial construction projects.
Not much speaks as loudly to the long-term stability of industrial growth as a group of investors willing to pour millions into a warehouse build just because. They’re betting on a new facility being extremely attractive in this climate of limited warehouse space, and they’re right to.
These two facets of industrial growth in our region, and the country at-large, are indicative of the value of adaptability these sorts of commercial construction builds can provide both for investors, owners and tenants. Adaptability is the key to minimizing long-term risk.
