Marc Brutten Brutten: “Labor availability and rates are one of the biggest drivers of industrial real estate project site selection today.”

SAN DIEGO—The biggest driver for markets like Salt Lake City is the growth of e-commerce, which creates a desire to get goods closer in proximity to the end users as well as to the center of the population, Westcore Properties’ founder and chairman Marc Brutten tells GlobeSt.com. An active investor in industrial and office properties throughout the Western US, Westcore recently acquired an 87,122-square-foot industrial property in Salt Lake City from Los Angeles-based BH Properties for approximately $7.15 million, marking Westcore’s entry into the Salt Lake City marketplace.
