LondonMetric acquires two last mile distribution warehouses for GBP12m

LondonMetric Property has acquired two last mile distribution warehouses in Leeds for GBP12 million, reflecting a blended NIY of 6.0 per cent and a reversionary yield of 6.5 per cent.

LondonMetric has acquired a new 100,000 sq ft warehouse on the Leeds ring road, close to the M1. The warehouse was completed in January 2017 and let to Vision Alert Automotives on a new 15 year lease at GBP5.00 psf with open market rent reviews. The occupier is consolidating its operations and the new unit will serve as its UK headquarters.
LondonMetric has also acquired a 49,000 sq ft warehouse in an established location close to Leeds city centre and the M1/M621 junction. The warehouse was built in 2009 and is let to Siemens plc at GBP5.25 psf with three years remaining of the 10 year lease.
The two warehouses were built by CDP Ltd, the development arm of Marshall Construction.
Andrew Jones, chief executive of LondonMetric, says: “We continue to grow our exposure to last mile distribution. As consumer delivery expectations increase, so the requirement for better urban logistics intensifies. These modern warehouses are well located and offer reversionary and asset management potential.”
LondonMetric was advised by Gent Visick.
