LondonMetric Property buys two urban logistics warehouses

LondonMetric Property buys two urban logistics warehouses – LondonMetric Property has bought two urban logistics warehouses in Manchester and Birmingham for £39m, reflecting a blended yield on cost of 4.25%. The newly built warehouses are let for 15 years at an average rent of £6.60 psf and benefit from RPI linked rent reviews.

In Manchester, a 137,000 sq ft urban warehouse has been acquired for £20.5m. It is pre-let at a rent of £0.9m a year to LSE Group Holdings, the largest UK pure play online retailer of home lighting. The announcement says that this company is growing strongly and therefore is upsizing its operations into the warehouse which will also act as its headquarters. The building has a low site density of 32% and is located between the M60 and M6 on the established Northbank Industrial Park.

In Birmingham, a recently completed 122,000 sq ft urban warehouse has been acquired for £18.1m, let at a rent of £0.8m a year to ERIKS, an international industrial service provider with whom LondonMetric has a strong existing relationship. The occupier is consolidating its operations into the warehouse which will act as its UK headquarters and will be fully automated with high-level racking, vertical lift systems and rapid transit conveyors. The building is located in Oldbury, close to J2 of the M5.

The warehouses are highly specified and have been built to a BREEAM Very Good standard.

The property in Manchester has been acquired from Marshall CDP, a commercial development and construction company, whilst the property in Birmingham was purchased from Opus Land, a leading West Midlands based property development company backed by Fiera Real Estate.
