INDUSTRIAL/MIXED COMMERCIAL USE EXPERTISE

Blake’s industrial real estate professionals possess in-depth knowledge of a defined geographic area or expertise in a sub-type of industrial property.

Warehousing and distribution space focuses on storing, sorting and moving products between destinations. Our professionals can provide distance analysis to help you evaluate the total cost of occupancy. What might seem like a good deal when measured by price per square foot might actually drain your company’s resources when measured by the miles it costs to reach your suppliers and vendors and distribute your goods. Additionally, we are keenly aware of the advances in distribution building technology, from robotics to enhanced clear heights and cross-docking capabilities. We can help you test a building’s current and future capabilities to guard against functional obsolescence.

Flex industrial space typically includes a mix of office and industrial uses, and is often found clustered in single-story industrial parks. Research labs, tech/telecom facilities and small-scale distribution businesses are among the typical tenants. Our experts can help you select optimal space that serves both your office and industrial needs, including configuring client/customer space, back office support space and storage/display areas. Careful attention to the lease contract for both landlords and tenants can provide good tenant improvements while preserving long-term flexibility.

Manufacturing space runs the gamut from simple space in flex parks to heavy industrial requirements. Our experts help you gather and evaluate information on power and utilities, municipal regulations on waste and noise, and business incentives to make the optimal choice for your facility. Many of our professionals cultivate in-depth knowledge of specialized manufacturing facility types such as cold storage, food facilities, clean room space or chip manufacturing. Additionally, we guide developers through build-to-suit construction to ensure the long-term success of the building investment.

We support developers, owners and occupiers to buy, sell, lease, manage, develop, renovate and value industrial space. Learn more about each of our service offerings:
