Warehouses will transform the UK’s urban landscape in the next few years, predicted experts at Property Week’s debut Talk Property event.

The virtual debate on Tuesday delved into issues such as soaring demand for industrial property, record-low availability and runaway rental growth.

CBRE senior director Jonathan Compton said the market was “finally having its day in the sun”, in part thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic.

He added: “With the urban market difficult to get a foothold in, other angles such as repurposing will be the way forward for those seeking opportunities.”
