Industrial vacancy in San Antonio plunges to record lows. 

Almost halfway through 2022, overall vacancy in the San Antonio industrial market has tightened to an extraordinary low of 3.5%, dropping 240 basis points from last year at 5.9%. Availability is at 7.9%, up slightly from April 2021 at 7.8%. The difference between this figure and the vacancy rate reflects expected future move-outs. The San Antonio industrial market has recorded 3.1 million sq. ft. of leasing activity, comprised of new leases and renewals, while net absorption (move-ins minus move-outs) is at 7.1 million sq. ft. Notable projects completed that contributed to the above-average net absorption in 2022 include the 3.8 million-sq.-ft. Amazon SAT3 – Project Star at 6806 Cal Turner Drive, and the 900,000-sq.-ft. Navistar manufacturing facility at 14607 U.S. 281 S.

The San Antonio industrial market has 7.9 million sq. ft. under construction, comprising 35 projects. The largest projects underway are Oakmont 410 (639,525 sq. ft.) at 542 SE Loop 410, Rosillo Creek Industrial Park 1 (560,500 sq. ft.) at 6042 IH-10 East, and Galleria Industrial Park (528,040 sq. ft.) at 7602 IH-10 East.

Westport Industrial Park, a 374,400-sq. ft. project has broken ground at 438 S. Callaghan Road in the Northwest submarket of San Antonio. Koontz Corp. is developing the park in phases, with the first of the two 187,200-sq.-ft. buildings set to be delivered in Q1 2023. NAI Partners—the commercial real estate services business of Partners Real Estate Company—are the exclusive leasing agents for Westport Industrial Park.
