LOS ANGELES—Finding well-located and developable land sites is still the biggest challenge for industrial developers, and that won’t change in the coming year, according to Larry Lukanish, SVP of commercial development and investment at the Sares-Regis Group. Lukanish is speaking on the Deals and the Dealmakers panel at the upcoming RealShare Industrial West conference. Before the big day, we sat down with Lukanish to get his market insight and see what he expects in 2016. His answer: tighter supply and more competition.

“The hardest part of our job is finding the land sites, and a lot of it is broker driven. In an auction process, there could be 20 to 40 people bidding on a site, so it is very competitive to get any new projects,” Lukanish tells GlobeSt.com. “In the bidding process, often developers are outbid by users, who can usually pay more than a developer can pay. Other times, we get lucky and find an off-market deal, but those are harder and harder to find.”
