Breaking Ground: Market Rents Justify New Warehouse Development - CBRE
Rising construction costs have not constrained new warehouse development due to strong demand and limited supply of modern logistics facilities. The land cost component of the development process has risen the fastest and can represent more than half of a project’s total construction costs, which range from $45 to $170 per sq. ft. The pro forma market rent significantly exceeds the breakeven rent required for a developer to break ground, often on a speculative basis. This spread between pro forma and breakeven rents currently ranges from approximately 20% to more than 40%, making warehouse development profitable in 10 leading industrial markets selected for this analysis.

Does Amazon create jobs? Well, it hired 75,000 robots in 2017. - Quartz
Amazon’s headcount is growing by 40% year-over-year. It was the eighth-largest private employer in the US at the end of 2016, and it’s poised to climb those ranks quickly. The online retailer also announced plans to build a second US headquarters that will employ 50,000 employees.

But Amazon’s growth comes at a cost. It has a well-earned reputation for overwhelming competitors. Even though Amazon represents a small portion of the overall retail industry, it dominates the industry’s sales growth.

We wondered: Does Amazon create more jobs than it destroys?

It depends—on whether you are a robot
