Midyear into 2017 and the average rental rate for Miami warehouse space slightly increases… grudgingly. Although some landlords have been able to increase rates for their warehouses, tenants and their respective brokers fight to keep the average under $10.00 per sq. ft. Institutional landlords are fairly disappointed that rates have not increased higher as they had forecast. Positive absorption this quarter was only 90,000 sq. ft. which helps the tenant’s side of the argument. Positive absorption totals almost 700,000 sq. ft. for the year. A healthy market is about 2,000,000 sq. ft. per year so we are well under this. However, we anticipate a strong 3rd quarter as there are several transactions getting wrapped up at the time we publish this report.The one recent lease deal that is worth mentioning is Custom Space. They leased 85,000 sq. ft. in Beacon Industrial Park in Doral. Custom Space is new-to-market and they offer a We Work concept for warehouse spaces with flexible sizes and terms. We wish them well here in Miami.

One of the largest sales transactions was Miami International Logistics Center in Hialeah. ComReal had originally sold the 506,300 sq. ft. warehouse to Keating Resources for $11,500,000 in 2013. (Source: Warehouse in Airport East Sold!). The ownership renovated the property and stabilized this asset for disposition. The ComReal team continued their efforts with the leasing assignment and the property was about 90% occupied upon the sale. Lincoln Property Group just acquired the property for $27,380,000. What a great story?!
