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

Total take-up across the Big Nine office markets (Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Newcastle) amounted to 8.8 million sq ft in 2019, 3% above the ten year average and comparable to 2016, a year that was similarly dominated by political uncertainty.

The regional markets continued to attract headline deals in 2019. JP Morgan Chase agreed the largest deal of the year, a 272,800 sq ft pre-sale in Glasgow, while BT Group signed the first of 13 hub relocation transactions, taking 200,000 sq ft at 1 Assembly in Bristol during Q4.
