Record-breaking industrial construction projects reshaping San Antonio region

Two months into 2022, overall vacancy in the San Antonio industrial market remains tight at 4.7%, dropping 150 basis points from this time last year. Availability is at 7.7%, down 80 basis points from February 2021. The difference between this figure and the vacancy rate reflects expected future move-outs. The San Antonio industrial market has recorded 1.8 million sq. ft. of leasing activity—which is comprised of both new leases and renewals—while net absorption (move-ins minus move-outs) is at 4.6 million sq. ft. Among the 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. The San Antonio metro NNN average asking monthly rent is at $0.56 per sq. ft., up from $0.53 this time last year.

Oakmont Industrial Group announced that its Oakmont 410 project—the largest-ever industrial spec development in San Antonio—has broken ground, with an expected completion date of December 2022. Oakmont 410 will deliver 639,595 sq. ft of cross-dock space upon completion. The development is situated on a 40-acre parcel in a prime logistics location near the critical I-410/I-10 intersection. NAI Partners was named the leasing agent for the industrial project.

The San Antonio industrial market has 10.8 million sq. ft. under construction comprised of 45 projects, a significant amount of space underway as percentage of inventory is at 8%. The largest projects underway are Amazon’s distribution center (1 million sq. ft.) at 10360 US-90, a build-to-suit for Navistar (900,000 sq. ft.), Oakmont 410 (639,525 sq. ft.) at 542 SE Loop 410, Rosillo Creek Industrial Park 1 (560,500 sq. ft.) at 6042 E.
