It is no surprise that industrial clear heights are rising. A new report from JLL shows that 36-foot clear heights are the current standard for new construction industrial properties—but in some places the clear heights are growing to 40 feet. These ultra-high clear heights may be preferred, however, they certainly aren’t necessary.
