“E-Commerce Continues to Drive Area Growth” is the headline of our Market Advisor report, a free quarterly publication that reviews local industrial market performance. Miller Industrial Properties makes these reports available at no charge to local news outlets and visitors to the website.
From the report:
“What do many consumers do when they need diapers, dog food, golf clubs or a new pair of shoes? Most of us cue up Google and within a few minutes we’re shopping away. A few clicks and within a few days or less, our items are on our doorstep. It’s a way of life now, but how does this transaction really happen? Well, a lot of these logistics are running through those large warehouses you pass along the freeways of northern Nevada. It’s called e-commerce and that distribution segment continues to drive growth in this region.
“E-commerce distributors tend to be large warehouse users, so when one relocates here or expands, it tends to take large enough chunks of space that the transaction moves the needle on our overall market quarterly absorption and vacancy rates. That was the case again this quarter as Jet.Com secured a new 672,000 SF space in Tahoe Reno Industrial Center. Jet leased a new speculative warehouse that is just now having its roof installed. This represents a 125% growth factor for Jet.Com locally, similar to Zulily.com and chewy.com, which both recently doubled their footprint in the area as well. These large e-commerce transactions are absorbing the new state-of-the-art, Class A, speculative warehouse spaces that continue to expand our industrial real estate market.”
