Congrats to the FIBRA Prologis team for the recent publication of their 2018 Annual Report!
According to the report, in 2018, FIBRA Prologis continued to focus on core markets, maintained industry-leading corporate governance and transparency, took a prudent approach to acquisitions, and built diversity among customers and markets.
Additional takeaways from the report include:
- At the end of 2018, occupancy stood at 97.4 percent—the fourth straight year above 95 percent.
- Leasing volume was 8.7 million square feet in 2018, up 11 percent from 2017.
