City Industrial Vacancy Rate 25%, Says Survey


Tipton, David, THE JOURNAL RECORD


A 25 percent industrial vacancy rate in downtown Oklahoma City and a 7.3 percent industrial vacancy rate in the suburbs ha s been reported by the Society of Industrial Realtors in its Industrial Real Estate Market Survey for fall/winter 1985, released this week.

Of the industrial space which was either leased or bought in Oklahoma City, 60 percent of it was absorbed by warehousing/distribution businesses this year, according to the report.

The figures for Oklahoma City vary only slightly from the overall average composition of absorption reported for the other cities located in the mid-continent region of the United States.

The Society of Industrial Realtors does a semiannual survey of market conditions in six major regions in the country. Oklahoma City, along with Tulsa and St. Louis, is among the nine cities included in the mid-continent region.

The Society of Industrial Realtors most recent survey shows 76 percent of the available industrial space in the mid-continent region was absorbed by warehousing/distribution companies.

However, the overall average absorption by high technology industries - 8 percent - was far below the 25 percent figure for Oklahoma City.

In addition, manufacturing accounted for 16 percent of the absorption in the region, just one point higher than that for Oklahoma City. …
