miami industrial real estate market 1st quarter 2014

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We start the new year with nearly one million square feet of positive absorption. Lease rates and occupancy levels have both increased. The vacancy rate falls now to 6%. The leasing activity is very strong as evidenced by all of the lease transactions listed below. These are good signs of a healthy and improving industrial real estate market.

Before you accuse us of building up the hype, we must confess that some of our customers report serious concerns with their respective industries as well as their perspectives of the overall economy. Industrial acquisitions and dispositions must be carefully reviewed before proceeding with any final decisions. Occupiers require good, functional properties with economical pricing.

We are excited to see that the land is now being cleared for the development of Flagler Station’s Phase III located on the northeast corner of the Florida Turnpike and NW 106th Street in Medley. This phase will consist of about 1,745,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space. Flagler is also now constructing Buildings 2 and 3 at South Florida Logistics Center. Several other new warehouses will be delivered in Transal Park, Miami Airport North and Beacon Lakes.

There are two very large industrial users looking for new locations in Miami. Telemundo is seeking a new facility of about 800,000 sq. ft. which will include studio, warehouse and office space. Online retail giant, Amazon.com, is looking to lease over 250,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space. There are also a good amount of other additional occupiers looking for over 100,000 sq. ft. of space to lease and/or purchase.

The ComReal Miami Industrial Team has a new refrigerated warehouse space available for sub-lease in International Corporate Park in Doral. The total space measures 64,000 sq. ft. In addition, we also have a 102,000 sq. ft. building with refrigerated warehouse space for sale or lease in Americas’ Gateway Park. Please visit www.AGPBuilding.com for more information and a virtual tour of the property.

Florida State Sales Tax on Commercial Rental Payments:

miami commercial realtorsEvery tenant and every landlord should read more about this issue. Florida Realtors are fighting for YOU!

Did you know that Florida is the only state in the USA that charges a sales tax on commercial rental payments? Are you aware that Florida also charges this sales tax on top of property taxes? This is double taxation and is simply not fair.

In March, Ed Redlich and other Florida Realtors visited Capitol Hill in Tallahassee to advocate legislators to reduce and/or eliminate the unfair sales tax on commercial lease agreements. Redlich is President of the Realtors Commercial Alliance of Miami with over 1,600 members. Read his letter to state legislators concerning the Florida state sales tax on commercial lease agreements. >>>
