UNION STREET PARTNERS RESEARCH

Our research is aimed at providing a detailed insight into the South Bank office market, currently Central London's most diverse and dynamic commercial market. We monitor stock across the SE1, SE11, SE17 and SW8 postcodes, breaking the largest of these (SE1) into the five distinct submarkets of London Bridge, Bankside, Waterloo, Borough West and Bermondsey, for an even greater analysis.

We have tracked quarterly Take-up, Availability, Future Supply and Investment activity in the market for over ten years, which is why, once the insight of our experienced property professionals is applied, it is considered by many to be the most credible, dedicated commercial property research available for the South Bank.

We would be delighted to share this research with you in relation to your specific interest in this market. Please contact our team to arrange a presentation (team@unionstreetpartners.co.uk) or use the links below for a summary of our latest report and copies of our earlier published reports.

LATEST RESEARCH

THE LONDON SOUTH BANK OFFICE MARKET REPORT Q1 2017

THE LONDON SOUTH BANK OFFICE MARKET REPORT Q1 2017

Investor appetite for commercial property in the London South Bank market grew markedly in the first three months of this year as transaction volumes rose by 70% quarter-on-quarter.

Our latest South Bank Market Update shows that £287m of assets were sold during Q1 2017. This was equivalent to almost half of all investment activity recorded during the whole of last year. 

With further major transactions reputed to be in the pipeline, there is continued investor interest in the South Bank from across the board.

Notable Q1 transactions included WPP Group’s £94.5m acquisition of Rose Court on Southwark Bridge Road SE1, and the sale of 1 Long Lane SE1 for £19.5m to Adir Group.

The South Bank office leasing market had a quieter start to the year with 208,958 sq ft let during the quarter, while total availability rose 7% quarter-on-quarter to just under 800,000 sq ft. This represents an overall vacancy rate of 3.9% which is still substantially below the West End (5.2%), Midtown (4.9%) and the City (8.9%).
