DFW Industrial Market Poised for More Growth in 2020


Demand for new industrial product like Skyline Commerce Park, a 198,000-square-foot project in Mesquite by Conor Commercial, is as strong as ever in the DFW metroplex.

By Allen Gump, SIOR, CCIM, executive vice president, Colliers International; and Allyson Gump Yost, associate vice president, Colliers International.

The Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) real estate market is remarkable. In a recent meeting with a broker from another market, he made the observation: “You guys in Texas are like a country unto yourself. It’s not that you don’t know there are 49 other states, you just don’t care!”
