What is an Industrial Land Property?

Industrial real estate is a strikingly broad category. Virtually any land or building which plays a part in industrial activities can be classified as such. This includes industrial factories themselves, while warehouses, storage facilities, and distribution centers are all industrial properties as well. In general, cities enact zoning ordinances to restrict the development of industrial land to specific areas. Industrial land, then, is any property that has been zoned industrially, but lacks a permanent structure—such as a factory or storage garage.

Because industrial lands have been so vital to economic growth since the Industrial Revolution, they are some of the most valuable and profitable properties which you can own. Location is key to success in any real estate investment, and New Jersey–across the river from one of the world’s largest metropolises –is inundated with valuable industrial land.

How Does Leasing Industrial Property Work?

There are multiple ways in which industrial properties can be leased. One of the simpler forms of this is a gross lease, through which tenants pay property owners a regular sum of rent. Other types of leases may shift the obligation to pay some costs, like property tax, from the owner to the tenant. Industrial property leases often last five to 10 years, which reduces the risk of vacancies on the land.

Most often, tenants have no property ownership rights. However, a separate class of lease, called a ground lease, allows for tenants to claim ownership of their building, but not the property on which it is built upon. Only the ground itself is being leased by the property owner, and through this the tenant has the right to develop the land throughout the lease term.
