E-commerce continues to drive demand for logistics-based assets.

In addition to the property being located alongside major transport routes, we were able to add further value by purchasing the land adjacent and converting it into a car park for the property. The investment was sold for £8.2m at 4.85%, 18 months ahead of schedule.
