Chicago Industrial Real Estate Market Overview

Due to its central location and developed infrastructure networks, Chicago is an established hub for manufacturers and distributors seeking to reach Midwestern and coastal markets. The region's intermodal capabilities continue to be vital resources for domestic and international shippers alike. With increasingly competitive transportation costs, an uptick in local manufacturing innovation, and exponential growth in agricultural exports to the West Coast and international markets, Chicago is undergoing a boom in industrial real estate demand. Third-party logistics providers, data center operators and e-commerce retailers in need of agile, strategically positioned fulfillment centers are likely to guide future development in the Chicago area.
