Guadalajara, Jalisco. In the Jalisco real estate sector, the development of last-mile industrial parks has grown exponentially over the past few years, mainly due to the pandemic.

Due to its geographical location and the consolidation of the pharmaceutical, automotive, technological and logistics clusters, in the Guadalajara metropolitan area, which consists of nine municipalities, the last mille industrial park model has become a phenomenon, Luis Montes De Oca, founding partner of Grupo Industrial Elite.

He said the demand for these properties has exceeded 300,000 square meters per year for the past five years and more than 70% of that area corresponds to foreign companies.

The last mile industrial parks have as their main feature their strategic location for delivery to the final consumer and have small warehouses from 1,000 square meters.

Montes De Oca said the major players in various industries have their large distribution centers or transformation or assembly companies, either in the metropolitan area of ​​Guadalajara or in nearby points such as the Bajío Motor Corridor.

“Mexico’s door to Asia is the port of Manzanillo and Colima does not have the infrastructure. We are two and a half hours away and the companies see Guadalajara, Jalisco as a very important point to distribute their products through Mexico. We are also two and a half hours from Bajío, the most important car corridor in the country “, explained Sergio O’Farrill, another of the company’s founding partners.


This group alone currently has parks of these features in the municipalities of Zapopan, Tlajomulco, Tlaquepaque and Tonalá, and this 2022 will invest 900 million pesos in three more developments that will be available from October.
