Early 2014 Sees Rise in Industrial Leasing

Just two months into 2014, industrial leasing appears to be on the rise, particularly in the southern part of Chicagoland. With over a month still left in the quarter, the Chicago South submarket has already seen three transactions larger than any leasing transaction in that submarket during the last quarter of 2013. A merchandise & assembly and a building & remodeling company signed leases for 270,000 and 100,000 square feet, respectively, in Bedford Park while a decor and design company is taking 235,000 square feet near Midway airport.
