CHICAGO—Everyone associated with the metro area’s industrial market wonders how long the current expansion will last. It’s already one of the longest in history, and since 2013 developers have finished 184 speculative development projects totaling 49.8 million square feet. But tenants keep filling up these structures almost as fast as they are built, and all signs point a level of demand, partly fueled by e-commerce and supply-chain reconfiguration, that should sustain a robust amount of development activity for at least the near-term.
