miami industrial real estate stats midyear 2013

Midway through 2013, ComReal is pleased to report that the average lease rates increased to $7.86 per sq. ft. and the vacancy rate decreased slightly to 6.4% within the Miami industrial real estate market. According to our sources, there are fewer on-the-market properties available for sale and lease. The “days on market” has also been dropping slightly for the past three years. Sales prices and lease rates are rising steadily over the same period. Although owners may be pleased with the values of their properties increasing, keep in mind that interest rates are also rising so prospective buyers will have a challenge affording the purchase of properties with both an increase in price plus higher interest rate.

There were two jumbo sales transactions during the 2nd quarter. The first was the sale of multiple class B buildings totaling 306,924 sq. ft. within Americas’ Gateway Park in Doral located at the southwest corner of NW 87th Avenue and 25th Street. The sale closed in May for a total price of $23,725,000 or $77 per sq. ft. The seller was TA Associates Realty and new owner is Terreno Realty. The second sale occurred in June. Lincoln Property acquired eleven buildings totaling 846,651 sq. ft. located in the Medley submarket. The purchase price was $59,850,000 or $71 per sq. ft. The Seller was again TA Associates Realty and the buyer was Lincoln Property Company.

The two largest leases of the past few months were OHL’s lease of the 185,520 sq. ft. space at 10733 NW 123rd Street in Medley. This is a very impressive, brand new facility owned by IIT. The second lease deal worth mentioning was the 143,000 sq. ft. refrigerated warehouse space in Miami at 7025 NW 37th Avenue by US Cold Storage. It is also exciting to report that Building 1 at South Florida Logistics Center by Flagler Development is almost near completion.
