Quarterly review of take-up in the major regional office occupier markets in the UK.

Total city centre and out-of-town activity in the ‘Big Nine’ (Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Newcastle) during the quarter amounted to 2.1 million sq ft, placing it just above the ten year quarterly average, as was take-up for the year to date figure of 6.3 million sq ft. Although this is significantly short of the record levels of the last two years, it is at a comparable level to 2016, when the market was similarly affected by political uncertainty.

Looking forward, long-term strategic demand remains robust as regional markets continue to benefit from substantial public and private sector inward investment.
