Thames Valley Property Report: Jan-Jun 2021

The first six months of 2021 saw businesses across the Thames Valley begin to rethink their future workplace strategy for a post-pandemic world.
July 28, 2021
As lockdown measures have eased, many businesses, including our own, have made the transition away from full remote working, to bring people back into the workplace.

This has resulted in a positive turnaround in commercial property sentiment compared with the inertia of the previous 12 months.

Office occupiers are going through the process of right-sizing their office space requirements, and many are re-considering the layout and content of their premises, making the most of the flexible offers and incentives available from landlords currently.

Meanwhile, on the industrial and logistics front, strong demand continues to prevail in line with the continued increase in online retail and last-mile delivery, which has resulted in a lack of supply and increased quoting rents across the Thames Valley.

However, opportunities for occupiers and investors / developers remain.

To explore these trends in more detail, we bring you the latest Thames Valley property report, with all the latest information about how the office and industrial markets are evolving here, as well as insight into market availability and rental tone across the region.
