In general, the Puget Sound region has seen a lot of growth in the industrial sector, according to a first quarter market report from Colliers International. The brokerage firm reported approximately 3.53 million square feet of net absorption in the first quarter of 2021, with continued optimism for the rest of the year. In-line with the rest of the U.S., e-commerce and third-party logistics space carried the region, making up for approximately 96 percent of total absorption. According to Colliers, this has caused tremendous rent growth, with potential for industrial rental rates in the region to increase six percent by 2022.
