Occupational demand for industrial and trade counter stock across our South Coast portfolio has been unaffected by Covid-19.

In the first two months of 2021 over 50,000 sqft of transactions have taken place, with more in the pipeline.  Rents for industrial and trade counter stock continue to rise, with no movement in incentives when compared to pre Covid-19.

The completed transactions include locations such as Shoreham, Havant, Chichester and Winchester, with all lettings to Grade A tenants, illustrating demand from national occupiers, and improving the income profile and average lease length of the portfolio.
