Building automation technology is cutting edge, but it's not brand new. A decade ago, what passed for a “smart” building focused on HVAC, single buildings, and solutions that lowered operating costs. But the value now has increased, in part because of advances in sensor technology that contribute to the Internet of Things.

The details are where the deal turns into a home run or a dreaded write-off, so where can investors look beyond the numbers and read the words between the lines?

Two new buildings will be added to the Oklahoma City office market in 2019, but they are both mostly full already. The 606 N. Broadway build-to-suit project will be approximately 111,000 SF when completed, but over 90% of the building has been leased to Heartland Payment Systems, and the space remaining is largely retail in nature. The other building to be added to the CBD inventory this year is The Monarch on the northern edge of the downtown submarket.

That is a rare occurrence, but the amount of space added outpaced the rate it could be absorbed. Although the market absorbed almost 395,000 square feet of space, over 800,000 square feet was added to the market.

The market is actually quite active, with several large leases being signed in 2018 and several more to come in 2019.

Many of these facilities have been re-tasked to internet fulfillment centers either directly or on behalf of an online retailer. Large-scale distribution facilities are now referred to in the industry as “big box”, and are either large (>200,000 square feet) single-tenant facilities or multi-tenant purpose-designed developments.
