For commercial property consultants, the New Year can sometimes be disappointing, as investors/developers and occupiers in the business community are slow to put plans into action, even if they have a New Year’s resolution to invest/develop/relocate etc.
This January has been noticeably different though, with very clear signs from the start that players in the sector were very keen to move quickly with plans and as a result we have had the busiest January that we can remember.
We have brought more than 20 new instructions to the market, totalling over 50,000 ft² of office, industrial and retail space. We have been appointed by several occupiers to relocate them and have already completed on some notable freehold and investment sales exceeding £10 million.
“I have never been more optimistic about our business, given the many new projects we are involved with and the many large long-term investment and development projects that are now in the planning stage. Despite some obvious uncertainties in the national and global economy, the business community and developers/investors alike seem determined to progress plans with all speed.” Michael Garvey, Managing Director
