The industrial real estate firm pointed to myriad factors for better than good market conditions in 2016, which it said are likely to continue in 2017, including: low interest rates, strong consumer spending, and e-commerce activity continuing to heat up. And on top of that JLL cited how potential future infrastructure investment, coupled with continued company expansion, could serve as demand drivers for future warehouse and distribution center development, too.

A wave of tremendous momentum in the industrial real estate market is showing no signs of crashing anytime in the neat future, according to analysis recently issued by JLL.

The industrial real estate firm pointed to myriad factors for better than good market conditions in 2016, which it said are likely to continue in 2017, including: low interest rates, strong consumer spending, and e-commerce activity continuing to heat up. And on top of that JLL cited how potential future infrastructure investment, coupled with continued company expansion, could serve as demand drivers for future warehouse and distribution center development, too.

“Things continue to be on a nice roll seem to be on a pretty good path relative to continued stability in the market, said Craig Meyer, President of JLL’s Industrial group. “Demand seems to be continuing at a strong pace and is up annually in 2016 as we are looking at nearly 250 million square feet of absorption, which is ahead of last year’s 230 million square feet.

I have been in the financial services industry for 20 years and our firm provides an education platform that gets clients to “think differently” about their financial picture.  For many years we have communicated to clients the need to diversify their portfolios using alternative asset classes and more specifically, private non-traded investments.  Due diligence on these types of financial vehicles is essential and when I learned about Blue Vault in 2010, our firm immediately began using their material as a tool to build confidence in the minds of our advisors on which alternatives to recommend to clients.  I am impressed with the way Blue Vault continues to add value to their subscribers and I view their publication as a tremendous resource in today’s complex world.
