Most New Jersey Under-Construction Industrial Space is Unleased

Industrial developers and property owners are anticipating a challenging leasing environment in the upcoming year and into 2025 due to the significant amount of new industrial space scheduled for completion. Currently, there are 18.2 million square feet of industrial space under construction in New Jersey, with 90% still available for lease. This influx of new supply is expected to impact the state’s fundamentals, particularly in Northern New Jersey.

The metropolitan area is already grappling with an unusually weak year for industrial space demand. Last year, net absorption, or the change in occupied space, recorded the first annual negative reading since 2012. CoStar predicts a second consecutive negative result in 2024, causing the average industrial vacancy rate for the region to increase by approximately 100 basis points to 5.1%.
