BKM's Brian Malliet Named Among Influencers in Industrial 2023
September 5, 2023 – The industrial asset class has not been as beleaguered as some other categories in commercial real estate but it still has posed challenges to the community. Fundamentals are softening and subleasing has gained currency in many locations as vacancies increase. This is not to say that the space is facing any long-term difficulties – next year many believe that the vacancies will drop once more as supply tightens. We have selected the following men, women, teams and companies as those best suited to help guide the industry through these times due to their skills and industry knowledge.
