B+E Net Lease Industrial Report: Amazon
B+E takes a look at current net lease Amazon market activity:
- Historical & on market sale prices
- On market cap rates
- Lease terms & more!
- Amazon industrial warehouse transactions in H1 of 2022 have included some of the largest trades on record.
- Amazon increased its number of U.S. fulfillment centers by 30% in 2021. This year the company has signaled it is slowing down this growth for 2022, as its industrial real estate footprint approaches a staggering +/- 400M square feet.
- Despite Amazon’s surplus of space and retraction from new construction projects, tenant demand for industrial net lease assets continues to be very high and competition for the existing supply is pushing lease rates and asset prices upwards, especially in proximity to major markets.
