  • The 2024 Edition of The Definitive Guide to Retail & Leisure Parks: A Resilient Sector 

    Learn more from the highlights of our latest research. Navigating Through Change: Resilience and Recovery The landscape of the OOT market is showing promising signs of stability. In the face of shifting inflation rates, rising costs, and interest rate changes, resilience has been the industry’s hallmark. Our detailed review sheds light on this resilience, highlighting a sector poised for recovery. The rebasing of rents and prices marks a significant milestone, signalling a sector that’s ready to move forward. Embracing Opportunities Despite the challenges of 2023 in the retail sector, including CVAs and administrations, their impact on the OOT market has been notably less severe than in previous years, underlining the sector’s robustness and adaptive capabilities. Leading the Way: Key Players and Emerging Dynamics Investment Management: The ascendancy of American company Realty Income as a premier investment manager in retail warehousing signifies a shift in the major players investing in the sector. Retail Parks Leadership: Consistency at the top echelons, with Middlebrook Retail & Leisure Park and Castlepoint Shopping Park maintaining their premier positions as flagship destinations. Letting and Managing Agents: The continued dominance of Curson Sowerby Partners and Savills in their respective areas reinforces their positions as industry leaders.

  • Q3 2023 UK RETAIL WAREHOUSE VACANCY RATES HAVE RISEN

    “Although the vacancy rate has risen in the last quarter we are of the belief that this is a temporary blip and when we look at Q4 2023 and Q1 2024 figures we’ll see the trend of very low vacancy rates continue. The market is in short supply of quality retail warehousing in good locations and we expect the majority of the Wilko units will be snapped up by retailers with aggressive roll out plans looking to take advantage of these spaces made available” Retail warehousing vacancy rates in the UK have risen for the first time in over 2 years, now at 5.7% at the end of Q3 2023 according to the latest research by Trevor Wood Associates (TWA), compared to 5.4% at Q2 and 5.8% at Q1 2023. The major contributor to the rise is the administration and closure of Wilko in September 2023 which led to nearly 0.90 million square feet of retail warehouse space becoming vacant. This figure should be treated with some caution as a number of these units are under offer and B & M have confirmed they shall be opening in the units they’ve purchased steadily over the next 12 months. It’s interesting to note the figure has fallen within Bulky Goods units, they remained largely unaffected by the Wilko’s closures, now at 4.2% - the lowest we have ever recorded. The sharpest increase was felt within Open A1 including food schemes which rose to 5.8%, a one percent increase to the Q2 figure of 4.8% while Open A1 Non-Food fell slightly to 6.2% (6.3% at Q2). Overall 2.77 million sq. ft. of space is under offer with a further 530,000 sq. ft. earmarked for non-retail purposes, if we were to remove both of those from our figures the vacancy rate would fall towards 4.0%.
