The property is let for a further nine years and is held on a long leasehold interest with 87 years unexpired. Since acquisition, LondonMetric has carried out various asset management initiatives on these assets including lease re-gears, rent reviews and removal of break clauses.

Our disposals over the last 12 months now total €284m (£250m) and we will continue to seek out new urban and regional warehouse opportunities where we can leverage our asset management capabilities.”
