Take up in the M1 south industrial market has totalled over 2m sq ft for two consecutive six month periods, driven by sustained levels of high demand. Rents are expected to increase as supply falls.



H1 2022 see high levels of take up sustained in the M1 south market

Take up reached over 2m sq ft for the second six month period in a row in the M1 south industrial market, which has seen historic levels of activity over the last 12 months.

The Big Box sector in particular, has seen significant activity, with 13 large transactions contributing to a total of 3.5m sq ft.

Limited supply presents a significant challenge for occupiers looking forward. We expect robust rental growth in both the Milton Keynes and Northampton markets.
