Types of Commercial Real Estate: (Part 4 of 6) Industrial

Updated: Feb 3, 2023

Industrial real estate includes factories, warehouses, shipping and distribution centers, and large buildings for other types of industrial activities, such as manufacturing, production, and storage. Due to technological evolution, the digitization of nearly every aspect of our lives, and high demand for last-mile delivery, industrial real estate is one of the highest performing sectors today. Industrial lease duration is anywhere from three to 10 years.

Sub-categories of industrial properties available for investment include:

Bulk warehouses: The largest category of industrial assets in terms of square footage typically functions as a regional distribution center for a single or multi-tenant base.

Flex warehouses: Also known as infill industrial, flex warehouse assets are single-story buildings with a combination of warehouse and office space.

Heavy manufacturing: As the name suggests, heavy-manufacturing industrial assets are highly customizable spaces built to accommodate heavy machinery and large manufacturing plants. They are typically leased to tenants such as chemicals and power companies.

Mixed-use and light assembly warehouses: Industrial facilities in the mixed-use and light assembly warehouse categories cater to specific storage and distribution needs, such as cold storage, self storage, and data centers. They are intensive assets to manage and operate, due to specific requirements, such as climate control, uninterrupted power, secure access, and data connectivity.
