Net Absorption (SF) 116,043

The Long Island industrial market reported a low vacancy rate of 3.1%, down from 3.2% at this time last year as well as from the fourth quarter of 2017. In order to incentivize more tenants to move to Long Island from Queens and Brooklyn, municipal incentives reduce taxes as well as the overall operating costs for these companies. A growing jobs market, advantageous size of industrial buildings and healthy economic fundamentals are all factors that appeal to industrial tenants looking to move into or expand their footprints within the area.
