BLP Q3 2022 Recap
It’s been another exciting quarter at BLP, and fundamentals continue to look promising for logistics real estate as a whole. Net absorption may not be on quite the same blistering pace as 2021 (which was fully expected), but we have every reason to believe logistics real estate is on excellent footing for the foreseeable future.
In July we closed on two properties in Linden, NJ, and in August we acquired a property in Miami-Dade’s top submarket, Doral (see details below in the Acquisitions section). September has also been busy with leasing activity and another acquisition in Dallas-Fort Worth (more details to come on that soon).As always, we have several more properties under consideration, and we anticipate having more deals to announce in the near future.

BLP news and insights from the past quarter.
1. Online grocery and takeout keep growing
More evidence that e-commerce growth is far from running out of steam.
Younger consumers more frequently order takeout and/or groceries online compared to consumers over 55. This suggests that online ordering share could significantly increase over time.
As the younger generations continue to age into adulthood, we anticipate further- growth in this space and as such a growing need for food warehousing and distribution - another driving factor for logistics.
2. Get ready for growth in online pharma sales
According to ecommerceDB, Sweden leads the way in online pharma penetration - a good proxy for the growth ahead in the U.S. and the need for logistics space toserve the coming demand.
3. Employee spotlight: CEO Jay Cornforth
“This is an exciting time to be in the industrial sector. The digitization of the economy and new initiatives around sustainable development practices are fundamentally changing demand for Logistics.”
Meet Jay Cornforth , BLP’s Chief Executive Officer. Prior to his current role, Jay was Managing Partner, Global Head of Logistics at Brookfield.

Ecommerce continues outpacing brick and mortar
The consumer has grown more cautious in their spending in response to the recent macro-economic decline. As a result, brick and mortar foot traffic has decreased, while ecommerce has maintained the growth that it has experienced from the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
