The work that NKF has developed in Tijuana has focused mainly on the industrial area , since despite the uncertainty that prevailed last year linked to political and economic events in the country , the northwest area and specifically that city, maintain a growing market with strong demand.
During the last year of industrial activity in Tijuana, according to NKF market reports , this segment experienced a growth of 113,427 m², reaching a market size of 2.96 million m² of class A buildings.
The absorption of the last 12 months closed at 111,473 m², maintaining an availability rate of 2% due to lack of industrial spaces. This has triggered the leasing of projects that are just under construction ('Built-To-Spec'), a trend that had not been seen in Tijuana in the last 20 years.
Some notable operations were: TransPak: 10,000 m² at IAMSA Vie Verte Industrial Park; DiaLight: 10,000 m² at IAMSA Vie Verte Industrial Park: Maxon: 6,700 m² at Vesta Lagoeste Industrial Park: Jacuzzi: 16,000 m² at Vesta Lagoeste Industrial Park; ParPro: 14,000 m² in Santa Fe Industrial Park; and G-Global: 8,000 m² ATISA in Parque Industrial Pacífico

Tijuana has a very important position in the industrial area, ahead of Guadalajara and Monterrey. It is a city that has awakened the appetite of large investors originally from the United States and Asia, today national investment prevails through new stock market investment vehicles. "We still continue with a lot of foreign investment, especially from the United States, and the sectors with the greatest growth are aerospace and medical, although electronics is also solid," Newmark executives report in the northwest zone.
However, the office segment is taking an important place, "today we see a very strong growth and boom in the field of offices , we are beginning to have coverage also in the branch to put the footprint of Newmark, since recently a internal study showed us a future growth of up to 300 new buildings in the first square of the city in the next 15 years. " they added.
Regarding the current context, the directors of NKF Tijuana emphasize that now that the rules of the game are known in the new trade agreement between Mexico, the United States and Canada ( T-MEC ), the real estate market in the region will be reactivated.
“With the fiscal adjustment on the border, we are going to see a 'boom' in offices and corporate operations never seen before in the city and in terms of manufacturing that is increasingly competitive and striking for Americans, the main indicators already on the doorstep suggest that the rent of industrial buildings is once again at the highest, historically in the city of Tijuana ”they affirm.
2019 is presented with a very positive outlook for NKF Tijuana, since last Friday, May 17, one of the main projects in the region was announced, where marketing will be in charge.
