D-FW leads the country in warehouse building and leasing

According to Steve Brown it shouldn’t be a surprise that Dallas-Fort Worth is the top market in the country for both warehouse construction and leasing.

With the pandemic fueling consumer demand for products and services, industrial development has boomed this year in North Texas while many other real estate sectors have floundered.

So far this year, net warehouse space leasing in D-FW has surpassed 21 million square feet, according to new reports from commercial property firm Cushman & Wakefield.

That’s well ahead of the other leading U.S. industrial markets in Pennsylvania and Southern California.
