Atlanta Industrial Real Estate Summary: Leases, Sales, and Construction Stats

Atlanta Industrial Real Estate Property Report - Ashley Capital

From 2010 to present, Atlanta’s population has grown over 18%, making it one of the top 40 locations in the nation for population growth. In addition to favorable population stats, Atlanta’s employment rate and economy ranks in the Top 25 in the United States according to several sources: US News & World Report, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, USA Today, and WalletHub.

These rankings are a byproduct of several industries doing well in the region, including finance, healthcare/biomedical, manufacturing, media/communications, film/TV and logistics. All contribute to Atlanta’s thriving commercial real estate market.

Obviously, the current pandemic is brining uncertainty across all sectors of the economy; however, the industrial real estate sector in Atlanta seems to be holding strong.

“Deals that were in the works before the Pandemic are still moving forward, but at a much slower pace. Fortunately, I personally have no deals terminated because of the virus.

In fact we’ve had several showings of industrial real estate spaces in the last 2 weeks. I generally feel like the rebound will be great when this is over!”

– Bobby Mayson, Atlanta Industrial Real Estate Broker @ Ashley Capital
