Achieved Record Quarterly Blended Cash Leasing Spreads for the Second Consecutive Quarter
Significant and Sustained Demand Reflected in Broad-Based Leasing Activity
New York – November 2, 2022 – Link Logistics (“Link” or the “Company”), the operator and owner of the largest U.S.-only portfolio of logistics real estate, today provided an update on the Company’s third quarter 2022 activity. The Company owns, has interests in or has under development properties that upon completion will represent a total of 550 million square feet (478 million square feet at pro rata share). Link’s operating portfolio is 97.4 percent leased on a same store basis, up from 97.0 percent in the same quarter from the prior year. The Company executed 18.9 million square feet of leasing during the quarter and achieved record quarterly blended cash leasing spreads of 51.8 percent, driven largely by mark-to-market.
“We are seeing healthy, broad-based demand for space, high levels of leasing activity and limited vacancy across our portfolio despite macroeconomic uncertainty,” said Luke J. Petherbridge, Link’s chief executive officer. “Link continues to focus on partnering with our customers to solve their supply chain challenges while making a positive impact on the communities where we live, operate and invest.”
Nicholas L. Pell, Link’s president and chief investment officer, added, “During the quarter, we added best-in-class infill real estate to our portfolio, focusing on high barrier-to-entry markets across the U.S. The real-time data and insights generated by our 500+ million square-foot platform continue to give us conviction in the favorable outlook for the logistics sector. We remain highly focused on pursuing new investments even amidst broader capital market volatility given our unique scale and access to capital.”
