As part of our first look at the CrowdStreet 2021 Investment Thesis, Chief Investment Officer Ian Formigle and Director of Investments Anna-Marie Allander Lieb shared their thoughts on the outlook and opportunities for industrial assets.

With the pandemic and associated stay-at-home orders only accelerating e-commerce growth, industrial was a bright spot in the market in 2020. Ian and Anna-Marie discussed the growing demand for industrial assets, including:

  • How consumer preferences for faster service, propelled by COVID, caused a spike in demand for last-mile distribution centers;
  • Why limited land availability keeps vacancy rates low and rents high across industrial properties; and
  • The opportunities for investors across various risk categories including ground-up, Core, and Core-Plus.
