Recently Amazon announced their 800,000 SF + distribution project at the Port of Tucson, . https://realestatedaily-news.com/that-massive-project-at-port-of-tucson-yeah-its-amazon/
Consumer purchasing is shifting quickly and instead of storing product at a retail store like Target, Ecommerce companies can ship directly from the warehouse. Now, for a lot of businesses there’s no need for retail exposure anymore because the consumer identifies the company/product on Amazon, Google, Yelp, etc as opposed to driving down the street.
A perfect example is gyms in industrial business parks. Gyms in industrial business parks are very common now because the rent is cheap and the consumer finds the gym on google, yelp etc, not driving down the street. Lower rent means cheaper prices which will create competition for retailers, effectively disrupting their business and bankrupting them (Sports Authority)……..is LA Fitness next? Barnes & Noble?
This effectively creates more demand for industrial property/warehouses which means rates rise and development will follow.
