Creating new business and commercial space opportunities

By Gary Tasman

The global pandemic is creating a wish list of opportunities for commercial space to fit the needs of a constantly changing work environment. A growing market for warehouse space, distribution centers and manufacturing facilities are the result of COVID-19 as businesses adapt to the changes.

Supply chains have been disrupted, but there are a multitude of opportunities magnified by the pandemic where suppliers, manufactures and distributors can move quickly, confidently and productively. Our team of experts at Cushman & Wakefield Commercial Property Southwest Florida is equipped with the passion, knowledge, creativity, data and inventory to help businesses find the commercial properties they need to become better because of the pandemic.

Lee County has existing space available that can be converted quickly to meet the needs created by COVID-19. Because of shelter in place orders and social distancing, customers have challenged companies to step up their digital capabilities for online buying, creating the need for distribution centers that can move items quickly and efficiently. Manufacturers need space for equipment and technology to make COVID-19 related products like masks, face shields and ventilators. The use of robotics to help eliminate human contact and the space to house the technology is on the rise. The need for cold storage also is growing.

Another industry challenge is long transit times from distribution points to the customer. Avoiding those time-consuming disruptions with more distribution centers strategically placed to move products more efficiently is a current industry conversation and movement. Cushman & Wakefield Commercial Property Southwest Florida is part of that conversation and can find the necessary space.

The pandemic is a unique, moment-in-time event challenging supply chain innovators and operators to survey the landscape and learn from companies, partners and other industries. Cushman & Wakefield Commercial Property Southwest Florida and its team will help companies navigate the paths ahead, mining data and inventory to find workable space solutions.
