Great Sheds, Hungry Agents and Wellie Wanging

Last week saw the great and the good of industrial agents from across the region attend DB Symmetry’s Best of British Tour showcasing three of their recent speculative developments.

DB Symmetry has a strong reputation as one of the leading commercial developers in the UK so it’s no surprise that so many agents turned out to see their latest high-quality offerings at Bicester, Banbury and Aston Clinton.

First stop on the tour was Symmetry Park at Aston Clinton near Aylesbury, where Phase 1 of the development is under construction and will offer 3 units of 55,000, 83,000 and 110,000 sq. ft. We were proud to host this leg of the tour as joint agents on this scheme and are excited about the opportunities the new development will bring to the local area on its completion in Q4 2019.

The second destination on the whistlestop tour was Central M40 at Banbury. To date DB Symmetry has constructed circa 855,000 sq. ft. of industrial warehouse accommodation on this site. Agents got to see first-hand the newest addition to the development – Unit 5 – an impressive 330,000 sq. ft that is now on the market.

The final stop and lunch destination for the hungry agents was at Symmetry Park, Bicester where the third unit in Phase 1 of the scheme, a 163,130 sq. ft. warehouse with offices, has recently been completed. We are very familiar with this scheme having acquired the first unit built on this site in 2017, an 88,000 sq. ft. warehouse and HQ for our client Bentley Designs.

Agents who attended all three sites on last week’s tour were treated to a pair of Hunter Wellies and an empty warehouse provided the perfect backdrop for some after lunch competitive wellie wanging!

As one of the most active speculative developers in the country DB Symmetry’s schemes are built to an institutional specification, however, all developments can be fitted out to meet occupiers’ individual requirements which undoubtedly adds to attractiveness of their offering.

With the UK’s evolving e-commerce sector and strong demand for a good quality product from investors and occupiers we’re confident these latest properties will face a welcome reception from the market.
