"2018 proved the best year ever for take-up in the East Midlands logistics market"
"Latest SPECS indicators show pressure on logistics build costs"
"Whilst supply has increased, this is skewed by the sizeable Lidl RDC, as otherwise supply has been reduced by the recent purchase of Vertex and letting of Colossus 1. Meanwhile no new build and very little other facilities of scale and quality have entered the market meaning that the Scottish Region is in much need of speculative development"
"It is pleasing to see large scale speculative development return to the region after a prolonged absence which will encourage grade A take-up and further rental growth"
"There are a number of sizeable requirements across the region being discussed and we anticipate significant activity in the second half of the year"
"With constrained existing unit supply and a strong development pipeline we expect quoting rents to exceed £6 in the next 12 months"
"After a relatively sluggish first quarter, we are beginning to see take-up in line with the long term average. With a number of significant deals due to complete over summer, the region is set for another robust year"
"Whilst Brexit is meaning deals are generally taking longer to complete we believe there is pent up demand for good quality space, which is being supported by the rents that have been achieved this year"
"We are seeing continued rental growth in the region which is narrowing the historic gap with the West Midlands"
"We are still searching for superlatives to describe the ongoing health of the UK logistics and industrial market"
