Terry Darrow: Dallas-Fort Worth Industrial Vacancy at an All-Time Low

Numbers are just numbers, right? 102 is a great number if you have $102 in your pocket, but it's not so good when it’s the temperature outside. As a landlord, 14 percent felt terrible when it was the vacancy rate a few years ago; so, does 6 percent make you feel better now?

Terry Darrow: Amazon—Not Just an Online Retailer Anymore

From a consumer perspective, not much has changed with Amazon besides the fact that the breadth of products it currently offers on its website has steadily expanded.

Terry Darrow: It’s 6:30 in Dallas

At Jones Lang LaSalle, we use a property clock to demonstrate where each market sits within its real estate cycle. The clock is divided into four sections: the geographies on the left side are typically landlord-favorable, and those on the right side are typically tenant-favorable. Markets generally move clockwise, and the biggest factor governing how quickly a market moves through the clock is supply and demand.

Our children named our very first Betta Fish, Moby. Moby was built, we discovered one day, with what we in the data center business call a "concurrently maintainable infrastructure."

Terry Darrow: A Halftime Report on DFW’s Industrial Sector

North Texas is home to many “Made in America” companies. South Dallas, in particular, has become an industrial hub to big names like GE Transportation, Kellogg’s and Home Depot. This got me thinking what Chrysler's “Halftime in America” Super Bowl ad, and what the concept means for our city, the state of Texas, and for the national industrial sector.
