Los Angeles leading the way for E-commerce leasing activity

E-commerce has been highly impactful on industrial markets in all geography areas. Leasing activity in Southern California has been dominated by e-commerce tenants and Los Angeles’ industrial market is capturing the lion’s share of activity.

  • Looking at data over the last 12 months, 43.4 percent of leasing activity over 50,000 square feet came from e-commerce related tenants in the Los Angeles market, with another 23.3 percent from Logistics and Distribution. Both Los Angeles and the Inland Empire are at the forefront of this trend.
  • E-commerce tenants have more big-box opportunities in the Inland Empire, but more activity is occurring in the Los Angeles market on aggregate. E-commerce companies are trying to keep up with consumer demand by servicing their quick delivery expectations, so are willing to take space in all sizes of facilities in Los Angeles where population is densest. ​​
