Colliers International’s Retail Capital Markets team achieves premium pricing for long let DIY store.
Tom Edson, Head of Out of Town Retail Investment at Colliers International commented: “This site is not only a well-operating asset to a secure FTSE 100 listed retailer, but it also holds redevelopment potential for the new owners. For our client the sale offered the opportunity to achieve a premium price which could not have been achieved 12 months ago.”
Tom Hill, Fund Manager at LaSalle Investment Management commented, “Investors are increasingly drawn to properties let to ‘bulky use’ retailers as it is considered that these will be more resilient to the rise of e-commerce. This property also offered long term redevelopment potential and as a result attracted very strong interest from a range of buyers. The sale crystalized a strong return for our pension fund client.”
