research article

In Q4 2023, Ottawa’s industrial market experienced an 80-basis point (bps) increase in its vacancy rate, reaching 2.0%, accompanied by a negative net absorption of 166,455 square feet. This uptick in vacancy does not indicate a market softening but rather the outcome of a necessary infusion of new supply.

  • The rapid rise in rental rates seen in 2022 has subsided in 2023. This quarter, the average net asking rental rates have dropped by $0.32 to $15.61 per square foot, mainly due to the introduction of several blocks of old generation space to the market. This reflects a year-over-year decline of 2.8%.
  • Six industrial projects are under construction totaling 1,199,950 square feet, while another 41 projects totaling 5.6 million square feet are in the planning or pre-leasing stages of development.
