    A planning application has been submitted for the much anticipated expansion of the Innovation Birmingham Campus.

    Severe shortage sees industrial rents rise

    A severe lack of supply of good quality industrial premises is pushing up rents and increasing the prospects of speculative development returning to Southampton, according to national property consultants Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH). The imbalance between supply and demand has contributed to the latest deal in which LSH negotiated an increased rent of £7 per sq ft for a 30,000 sq ft unit. LSH’s South Coast office acted jointly with JLL on behalf of UK fund manager F&C REIT Asset Management to secure UTi Worldwide as tenant for Unit 2 Airways Distribution Park, Eastleigh. The global supply chain management company, which has 313 offices and 245 logistics centres in 59 countries, has taken on a 10-year lease for the unit. DTZ acted on…

    Barnsley Trade Park Reaches full occupancy of trade units

    Barnsley Trade Park has reached full occupancy with all its trade units now let. The speculatively built site has proved to be a huge success despite the difficult market conditions of recent years and occupiers include many leading national brands such as Jewson, Screwfix, Toolstation, Yesss Electrical, Euro Car Parts and Halfords.  The final 2,800 sq ft trade unit was let to Eurocell, a UPVC systems market leader. Jonathon White, Associate Partner at Sanderson Weatherall said; “Barnsley Trade Park has proved extremely popular, the units have been of the highest quality and the location has been much sought after.  The calibre of the tenants, speaks for itself and it is gratifying to see that such a development which was built speculatively…
