MIAMI-Miami-Dade industrial market vacancies have grown by two percentage points to 9.5% while leasing activity has dropped 25% to the 3.3 million sf, according to a second-quarter study by Cushman & Wakefield of Florida Inc.

The absorption rate stands at a negative 725,835 sf, compared to last year when it was a positive 282,000 sf. Reduced demand and new construction have increased supply.

“We’re at a static point right now and businesses are taking a wait-and-see attitude,” Wayne Ramoski, director of industrial sales and leasing at Cushman & Wakefield in Miami, tells GlobeSt.com. “A lot of space has been downsized because of declining sales and I don’t see anything in the economy right now that’s going to turn it around.”

Regions hit hard by the sluggish market are Airport West, with 13.5% vacancy and Medley at 14%. On the bright side, low vacancy areas such as North Central Dade with 7.1%, and Hialeah with a 5.3%, continue to thrive in the slow market, the report says.

The direct weighted average for the rental rates stood at $24.29 per sf, high tech; $5.38 per sf, manufacturing; $6.32 per sf, warehouse/distribution; and and $10.30 per sf, office showroom. The county has one million sf under construction.
