CBRE released its first quarter 2018 Texas industrial MarketView. Statewide, the 90-day net absorption increased by almost 2 million square feet. This was due largely to Houston’s absorption growth of 2.5 million square feet. Occupied growth in inventory combined with robust leasing activity pushed down Texas industrial vacancy to 5.9%, down from 6.3% in fourth quarter 2017 and 6.2% a year ago. Dallas/Fort Worth leads in new construction starts but with a smaller margin compared to previous quarters.—Lisa Brown
