Industrial Land Inventory Review Metro Vancouver completed an inventory of Industrial Land in 2010 The study was updated in 2012 and identified 4,521 acres as available in the short to medium term (to 2017) as readily available for development and 2,000 acres post year supply based on historical absorption
NAIOP retained the services of Pacific Land Group to analyze the Metro Report’s findings for land available in the short term (before 2017) NAIOP wants to ensure that Key Policy makers are using accurate information when making policy decisions that affect the industrial and commercial land base NAIOP wants to work with all levels of government to identify new opportunities for designation of industrial land
NAIOP’s interest is aligned with the region’s interest in ensuring that the region retains the ability to support the expected future growth in employment both in the short to medium term and in the coming decades. We want to work with regional and local policy makers to not only maintain an appropriate mix of industrial land but also to expand the base to meet future needs..
1,525 acres of land were impacted by at least one development constraint. 2,443 acres of serviced land available for near team development. Based on average absorption, the full 2,443 acres could represent approximately between a 6 to a 9 year supply. Key Findings
Availability of land for Distribution, Regional contractors, food service and agricultural cold storage facilities, national and international logistics, e-commerce, and large scale manufacturing corporations is limited in the short to medium term. The full report will be released at NAIOP’s June 20th Industrial Land Forum Key Findings
NAIOP is not in favour of the establishment of an Industrial Land Reserve (ILR) An ILR will limit the ability of the region to respond effectively to market forces and infrastructure changes shift uses and transportation patterns over time. There is currently enough protection contained both within the Regional Growth Strategies as well as local municipal zoning to protect currently zoned and designated industrial land
