Development

IDI has focused exclusively on industrial real estate since our founding in 1989. Our national and local market experts have developed 161 million square feet of property throughout North America and we own and operate millions more. No other development company can match IDI’s experience, people, disciplined processes and track record of success.

WE DEVELOP CLIENTS' PROPERTIES AS IF WE OWNED THEM

IDI is one of the few companies that not only develops buildings, but also owns and operates industrial space. Through real-world experience, we understand the complete lifecycle of buildings: how much they cost, how they’re constructed, how they operate and how they age. The first-hand knowledge we’ve accumulated over 20 years of managing our own buildings is a significant advantage for our clients. IDI construction managers from around the country meet regularly to review our procedures and look for ways to improve the building process and manage issues that arise after a tenant takes occupancy. This continuous improvement process positions IDI as the clear leader in industrial developments, setting many of the standards clients have come to expect. Find out what else makes IDI different >>

INDUSTRIAL INVENTORY

At any given time, IDI has 10 to 12 million square feet of move-in-ready industrial, office and distribution facilities available across North America. Our state-of-the-art buildings are renowned for their strategic locations at the optimal convergence of intermodal traffic and population centers.  Buildings and sites can be easily adapted to specific operational requirements to reduce costs, boost productivity and achieve global supply chain efficiencies. All IDI buildings have sustainable features that are valuable assets to clients concerned about the environment. We have a sizeable inventory of LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified space available now or planned in core markets. See IDI’s available properties >>
