DTZ Investors purchased Goodmayes Retail Park in London (GB)

DTZ Investors acquired Goodmayes Retail Park, Chadwell Heath, London, the third investment for LGPS Central’s recently launched UK Direct Property Fund. Goodmayes Retail Park is let to a range of retailers including Wickes, Currys, Carpetright, The Gym, Nandos, Costa and Masala Bazaar. The location of the site is expected to experience significant regeneration and growth in the near future. This is due to new investments being made in housing, employment opportunities, and social infrastructure. The site is in close proximity to the new Crossrail stations at Goodmayes and Chadwell Heath which is expected to contribute to the area's growth.


Mike Hardwick, Investment Director for property investments at LGPS Central said “While the availability of investment opportunities remains constrained we are pleased to have secured a further investment for the Fund. The initial investments have all been in greater London, which is a property market that in general has strong fundamentals, with Goodmayes in particularly benefiting from its close proximity to new Crossrail infrastructure. We expect to continue deploying capital into strong assets over the coming months, across the UK


Sam Brice, Director at DTZ Investors said “We are delighted to have secured a third investment for the LGPS Central UK Direct Property Fund. Goodmayes Retail Park aligns with the wider Fund strategy of investment into strong locations with diverse underlying occupational demand. With the relatively low rental levels across the park, the asset is well positioned to benefit from the low vacancy rates across the retail warehouse sector and demand stimulated by Crossrail-led regeneration. We are actively seeking further opportunities in core markets across the UK as we continue to grow the Fund.
