research article

Ottawa's industrial market continues to experience strong demand from e-commerce and distribution tenants. However, leasing activity has slowed down somewhat over the past two quarters due to a need for more suitable availabilities and the uncertainty created by rising interest rates.

  • Five new industrial buildings were completed in Q4 2022, totalling 310,152 square feet. This new supply contributed to Ottawa's industrial vacancy rate rising by 37 basis points (bps) to 1.1% in Q4 2022, while the availability rate increased by 44 bps to 1.7%.
  • There was 174,568 square feet of net absorption, with the majority occurring in the Kanata / Deep West submarket.
  • This quarter's average net asking rents increased by $1.28 per square foot to $16.05 per square foot, representing an increase of 8.7% quarter-over-quarter.
  • There are 367,781 square feet of industrial space under construction in six projects (three in East Ottawa and three in Kanata).
  • Due to the strong market fundamentals, the Ottawa industrial market is also in high demand from an investment perspective.
