Not for the first time, this kind of news in the Insider online magazine doesn’t make it into the MSM coverage:
Take-up of large industrial and logistics space hit a record high in the first half of 2020 despite the pandemic, according to real estate firm Savills. The firm’s latest Big Shed Briefing reports leases of properties of more than 100,000 sq ft totalled 704,531 sq ft across four transactions. That was a 165% increase on the long-term first half average and 95% increase on the first half of 2019. The deals included Iceland committing to 284,000 sq ft on Houston Industrial Estate in Livingston; Stanford Logistics agreeing to 122,575 sq ft at Titan Eurocentral in Motherwell; and Hewlett Packard Enterprise signing a new lease on 170,956 sq ft at HP Erksine in Bishopton.
