The sky is the limit on industrial features these days. In the Inland Empire, an industrial market driven by third-party logistics, users are looking for large floor plates, clear heights of at least 40 feet on new product and a central location. For the limited number of buildings that fit this bill, there is strong user demand

“The model for Class-A distribution is constantly changing.  Only a few short years ago the industry was moving from 32-foot clear height to 36-foot clear in these larger buildings; now we are looking at 40-foot clear or greater,” Jason Krotts, a principal at REDA, tells GlobeSt.com. “As we design these facilities, we take the approach of a long-term owners perspective. The intention is to try to forecast where design changes are occurring and implement these changes to capture as much of the market as possible.  Tenants seem to be taking more advantage of the overall cubic volume of these facilities and the racking and fire systems are changing.  More and more users are putting in material handling systems, which are starting to change how these buildings are designed.”
