Market Reports

The industrial market seems to have normalized back to pre-pandemic days in recent months. The vacancy rate continues to increase and is expected to do so through Q4 2023. Central Ohio is emerging as a top tier market for data centers with Microsoft, Google and Amazon planning or building new facilities.

Lease rates have been increasing despite the rise in the vacancy rate. Expect rate increases to continue as the current spec projects under construction get absorbed.

Development of future speculative warehouse space has slowed significantly with only 1.6 MSF of new construction starts in Q2 2023, which is down significantly from the same quarter last year.

The amount of space available for sublease has increased significantly to 2.5 MSF, but at less than one percent of the overall market it is not having a big impact on lease rates.

With the Intel and the Honda/LG EV battery facilities under construction, expect to start seeing a positive impact with their suppliers coming into the area.

“Central Ohio is one of the few metro areas in the Midwest that is growing. It continues to be a place companies want to do business. Due to its proximity to a large percentage of the U.S and Canadian populations it will always be a strong logistics hub. Now with it being identified as a near perfect location for data centers the area’s growth will get stronger and continue into the foreseeable future” - Curt Berlin, SIOR, Industrial Specialist

Opportunity Spurs Growth at NAI Ohio Equities

September 12, 2023

Less than a year after Matt Gregory stepped into the role of Managing Director for NAI Ohio Equities, he is delivering on his commitment to focus on the brokerage’s growth and operational strategies.

Gregory says the firm is being intentional with its plans to grow the brokerage and has recently hired five new agents and is launching its pilot of the NAI Ohio Equities Fast Track training program.

Chad Boggs, Bastian Gehrer, Andrew Green, Peter Griffith, and Chris Wellington will be the inaugural class in the firm’s formalized training program.

Gregory said that developing the next generation of brokers is important to meet the needs related to the region’s anticipated growth. It also allows the firm to leverage the collective experience of its tenured group of existing agents to cultivate new talent.

“The ‘Fast Track’ is intended to streamline the process for new agents, providing them with the necessary knowledge and exposure that might normally take years, over the course of six months,” explained Gregory.

Beyond the Deal: Four Essential Steps Now That You’re Closing on Your Commercial Property

August 24, 2023

Your offer has been accepted, you’ve completed your due diligence, and you’re closing on your commercial property – so, what’s next? Whether you are a commercial property owner or tenant, there are still more details to attend to. From preparing your space for occupancy to budgeting for long-term capital expenses, these are the must-do’s now that you’re closing.


Now that you’ve found the perfect space for your business, or secured the ideal tenant, it’s time to begin making it your own. You’ll need to retain a qualified architect and designer to create a functional and visually appealing layout and to obtain the proper permits. You’ll also set up your utilities and possible infrastructure needed such as internet connectivity, and make sure to update your address with vendors, and on your website and business cards, etc. Also, make a plan for the financial organization of your property by establishing which bank accounts you will use for bills, and think about hiring a CPA advisor to help you navigate taxes and other financial matters. It’s also a good idea to introduce yourself to your neighbors, and local fire and police departments, and consider joining the local chamber of commerce. Lastly, it’s time to think about building security, such as lighting, security guards or access control, surveillance, and alarm systems.
