Investment within the industrial sector has continued at a pace throughout 2015. We have seen yield compression across the board, buoyed by resilient occupier demand and a lack of available stock. While the return of speculative development within the distribution market may start to rebalance some of the mismatch between demand and supply, there remains favourable conditions for rental growth which is naturally appealing to the investment market. Notable deals during H1 include:
• B&Q Distribution Facility, Worksop - £89.75m (5.13%)
• Bunzl Interlink Park A, Bardon - £6.25m (5.77%)
• New Look, Lymedale Business Park - £30.05m (5.9%)
