Bi-annual report on the UK distribution occupier and investment markets.

Take-up over the first half of 2017 was 11 million sq ft, just below the five year average of 11.3 million sq ft. Amazon took 2.3 million sq ft in 5 deals and there was an increase in activity for the manufacturing sector, particularly automotive. Existing supply remains constrained but has increased from a cyclical low last year as speculative developments have completed and second-hand modern units return to the market. This edition includes a focus on the current speculative development cycle.
