The Route 28 North industrial submarket is truly remarkable. With nearly 35 million square feet of industrial space (over 3 times the office inventory), Route 28 North is the largest industrial market in the DC metro area. Vacancy rates are at an astonishing 3.6% and even with 3.4 million square feet under construction at the end of 2018 demand should continue to keep pace with supply. In fact, there is around 7 times more construction underway than the next busiest submarket, a trend that is driven mainly by the area being home to Data Center Alley. Rent growth hit an astonishing 4% in the past 12 months and with Amazon and Google’s continued growth and need for server space, we can expect Route 28 North to continue to prosper.
