GTA Industrial Rental Rates By Clear Heights

It's clear: During the 1980s, warehouses commonly had clear heights of 20 feet. However, in today's market, most newly constructed Class A distribution centers have clear heights ranging from 32 to 36 feet. This increase in height significantly enhances the capacity of warehouses, such as those used for e-commerce, by approximately 10 to 25%. Anticipate significant changes in this trend within the next 12 months. Currently, there isn't a substantial enough difference in pricing between products with clear heights of 18 and 32 feet. However, it's logical to expect that clear heights will eventually yield price discrepancies, unlike the trends observed over the past three years. As such, pricing for lower clear height options will likely decrease, emphasizing the necessity for correct pricing alignment with the appropriate product.
