In this forward-looking keynote, Dr. Walter Kemmsies, managing director, economist and chief strategist for JLL’s ports, airports and global infrastructure group, will cover macro trends in the industry and where we are in the current real estate cycle. Explore the repurposing of industrial real estate, the reasons behind continued low vacancy rates despite an increase in construction, and cost-plus pricing vs. Buy Minus phenomena. With the continued movement towards omni-channel availability and automated delivery systems, how can CRE not only keep pace – but prosper?

Amazon has led the pack in compressing time between the “click” of an online order and the “knock” on the door for delivery. Their next step? Creating the next generation of local delivery infrastructure made up of receiving, sorting and delivery/pick up centers. This will require a revolution in industrial real estate activity within cities and neighborhoods, as facilities are repurposed or constructed to support 1-2 hour deliveries to customers in the market. Leave this session with critical takeaways on what this trend will mean to the industrial sector, what considerations are necessary as developers look for opportunities in redeveloping new logistics centers, and what companies are best positioned to offer a solution for this last mile fulfillment model.
