Denver Industrial Market Report Q4 2019

A confluence of events has turned Denver into one of the most active second-tier industrial markets in the country. Robust demand in this regional market with strong economic growth this cycle is stemming from the growth of retail sales, employment, and industrial production in the metro area and the greater Colorado region. Furthermore, the emergence of the marijuana industry's presence with the passing of Amendment 64 in November 2012 created a new demand driver this cycle, with new and relatively unsophisticated tenants operating with entirely different profit margins.
