According to research by Ichigo Real Estate Service, the vacancy rate for distribution facilities in greater Tokyo in October 2012 was 2.5%. While this figure has increased by 0.2% since the last data collection in July, it remains at a very low level.
With the completion of Prologis Park Zama 2 in August, the new supply of distribution facilities reached a three year high of 808,500 sqm (8,699,460 sqft). Most of the new space was taken up by demand, which reached 735,000 sqm (7,918,284 sqft). This helped to limit the rise in the vacancy rate.
