“Even with the current economic uncertainty, demand for warehouse space in suburban markets like Orange County has remained strong,” Garrett McClelland, JLL Vice President. “Orange County is a very desirable market, and has the population, job growth and income to be a top industrial market for years to come.”

According to JLL’s Q3 Orange County Industrial Insights report, availability declined for the fourth consecutive quarter and now sits amongst the lowest across the Southern California industrial region at 2.8%.  Additionally, competition for larger blocks of space has remained fierce throughout the year and has forced many prospective tenants to wait for new development.
