​DALLAS-FORT WORTH - North Texas industrial construction soared past 23 million sf last year​​​—one of the highest volumes in the country and a recent record for the area​.

By comparison, only about 6 million sf of office buildings are going up in the area and less than 3 million sf of new shopping space is in the pipeline.

The amount of warehouse and industrial space being built in the DFW area has increased 45 percent in the last year, according to commercial real estate firm Cushman & Wakefield Inc​.

More than 75 percent of the warehouse space being built around the area is speculative construction. Fortunately for developers, about 45 percent of that is already spoken for by tenants.

An additional 5.3 million sf is being built near Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport in the Great Southwest and Centreport districts. North of the airport, 2.4 million sf of warehouse projects are in the works.

North Texas ranked second nationally in industrial building demand last year.
