Atlanta Remains Top City in Nation for Absorption Year to Date

With the first two quarters posting absorption over 12 million square feet, all key indicators continue to confirm that the industrial market in Atlanta remains strong. In fact, the city leads the nation in total net absorption for the year and has already surpassed 75 percent of last year’s net absorption. The south Atlanta submarket made up for more than 60 percent of the year-to-date total.

The continued growth of Atlanta’s infrastructure, logistics and manufacturing industries are driving factors in the market’s success with warehouse and distribution centers representing the majority of the demand. Since the city is a logistic and transportation hub for air, road, water and rail, industrial sector opportunities will continue to increase. These factors and the growth of the e-commerce industry will also highlight the city as an attractive asset for real estate investors.

Georgia’s location, relatively affordable land rates and business-friendly climate often help position the state as a top selection site for big business. McWhirter Realty Partners helps companies find current space, and also identifies, develops and manages new construction opportunities.
