CENTRAL PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY INDUSTRIAL ANALYSIS
The Central Prince George’s County Industrial subset would consist of the Landover/Largo and Cheverly/Hyattsville submarket. The total rentable base area for this subset is approximately twenty one million square feet in total, representing roughly 1/3 of the entire Prince George’s County Industrial market. The Central Prince George’s County submarkets have thrived over the years due to their proximity to Washington, DC and ease of access to the Capital Beltway making for an invaluable local/regional distribution point. Presently the subset is experiencing a higher than average vacancy rate of approximately 15%. Most of the vacant spaces however are in older class C buildings that are now considered obsolete due to lack of truck court depth, lower ceiling heights or a variety of other deficiencies. If you restrict the view of the subset to modern product (defined as built or renovated yr 2000 or later) the vacancy rate falls to just 2% of the approximately 1.8 million square feet of existing product.
