Average industrial building clear heights increase by 50 percent in the last 60 years

• Industrial buildings have experienced a 50 percent increase in average clear height in the last 60 years.

• In Orange County, industrial clear heights have increased from an average of 21 feet for buildings constructed in the 1960’s to 31.4 feet for buildings delivered in the last decade.

• With vacancy hitting record lows, the extremely low level of available land in Orange County and shifting preferences among tenants, high volume users are “looking up” to increase warehouse efficiency practices.

• Moreover, e-commerce as well as just-in-time inventory management are also making an impact on the industrial landscape as logistics and courier industries benefit from these increased efficiencies (thus cost reductions) obtained through increased stacking heights.
