research article

2023 has been a year of normalization for the Greater Vancouver Area’s industrial market, with the vacancy rate moving closer to the 10-year quarterly average of 1.5% and the rental rates coming off its peak.

  • The average asking net rent landed at $21.44 PSF in Q4, achieving an annual growth of 1.6%, despite declining for the third consecutive quarter.
  • This quarter saw over 20 developments reach completion, contributing over 3.4 million square feet to the inventory. Net absorption reached a historical quarterly high of 2.8 million square feet as strong pre-leasing activity overshadowed the uptick in vacancy.
  • Both landlords and tenants are in the middle of navigating and understanding the new market norm, as it has been years since occupiers have had the luxury of multiple options and time in deal negotiation.
