Orlando Led Nation in Quarterly Industrial Rent Growth in Q2 2023

A recent report from CoStar Analytics, a leader in commercial real estate information, analytics and news, found that Orlando, Florida, experienced the highest industrial rent growth in the U.S. in Q2 2023. With an increase in industrial rent growth of 17.1% from the previous year, Orlando topped the list, with Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Miami and Tampa not far behind in the top 10.

With a total industrial rental portfolio in the Orlando market encompassing more than 600,000 square feet, Basis Industrial provides ample opportunities for rentals in this real estate hub.

Basis Industrial seeks out locations with strong population growth and an evolving distribution landscape, such as Orlando. While one of its first transactions was in Orlando, the company plans to continue growing its footprint in the area.

Industrial employment in Orlando continues to grow. In fact, according to CoStar:

  • Industrial employment in Orlando has grown by more than 20% over the past five years as a result of the sector’s growth.
  • Leasing interest in spaces 25,000 square feet and smaller in Orlando has been high.
  • There is a strong demand for buildings up to 200,000 square feet.
  • Orlando is expected to experience the third-fastest pace of rent growth in the nation over the next four years with an expected annual growth of 6.5%, outpaced only by Fort Lauderdale at 7.1% and Miami at 7.2%. This ranks Orlando higher than the major California markets of Inland Empire and Los Angeles, plus the Northern New Jersey market.
