As you can see above, there's no need to whitewash the biggest deal. Data compiled by both Colliers International and King Industrial Realty show that Clorox's build-to-suit at Southcreek Industrial Park was far and away the largest industrial deal this year. Second largest is famed shirt-maker Phillips Van Heusen's 851K SF warehouse in McDonough. What's telling about this year's list of  top deals is half of the largest leases were under 500K SF—a size that wouldn't have made the list in past years. ?I think deals are smaller in general, and shorter in term,? says King's Charlie King. ?Flexibility? is the operative word in industrial leasing deals today. You may do a five-year deal, but you're likely going to have kick-out clauses well before expiration, Charlie tells us. ?Time is the new coin in the realm.?
