Colorado Springs Industrial Market on Pace for Another Level Year

The Colorado Springs industrial market has trended positively over the past 10 years. Though it is a very gradual trend, we are now at a point where we anticipate the market to slow or level off.

Orange County’s Industrial Market Stays Healthy Going Into 2020
