10-21-15_ImpactSeriesJLL’s Les Boudwin coined the term ‘surge-demand’ when Amazon took occupancy of a 1.0-million-square-foot facility in Dupont, WA in the fall of 2013. Buildings of this size are rare in greater Seattle, and this one deal comprised nearly a quarter of the market’s net absorption that year.
Recent Amazon move-ins in Baltimore and Tampa Bay also elevated local absorption totals. If one were just looking at statistics to gauge market activity, then “deal velocity” would be overstated-a trend that JLL explores in its latest Impact Series.
