Why Class B Industrial Real Estate?

The rise of e-commerce, coupled with a resurgence in American manufacturing and the growing need for inventory and distribution channels, has catapulted the demand for industrial space. This demand is forecast to escalate further in the coming years, underscoring the growing need for Class B Industrial spaces.
The push for just-in-time delivery models and closer proximity to consumer bases has elevated the importance of strategic locations. Class B Industrial properties often occupy these coveted infill and last-mile spots, making them critical for modern logistics and distribution strategies.
Recent supply chain challenges have underscored the benefits of domestic production and warehousing, further boosting the demand for industrial spaces as companies seek to onshore operations and reduce dependency on foreign manufacturing.
The economic landscape has rendered many Class B properties irreplaceable due to soaring construction costs and the premium on land in infill locations. This scarcity enhances the value of existing properties.
Industrial properties have enjoyed positive net absorption in most of the past decade, with tenant demand diversifying across new industries. This steady growth creates a strong tenant base for investors.
Industrial real estate remains a top choice among investors, with forecasts predicting that it will outperform other property types in returns. Furthermore, the market has seen significant rent growth. Existing leases were instated at rates that are now below current market values, creating the opportunity for further increases.
The Class B Industrial market is largely owned by local or regional entities, resulting in less competition for TruCore. Our national market expertise allows us to identify and exploit arbitrage opportunities, especially in properties marketed broadly versus those limited to local exposure.
Unlike the more “institutionalized” Class A sector, Class B Industrial typically features shorter lease terms. This offers landlords more flexibility to adjust rents to market rates, creating an inflation hedge and opportunity for strategic value-add maneuvers.
With the lowest capital expenditure requirements among real estate asset classes, Class B Industrial minimizes unforeseen costs. Moreover, tenants in these spaces tend to remain for extended periods, providing stable, long-term occupancy rates and opportunities for landlords to support tenant expansions within the portfolio.
