Positive start to office market activity in Leeds

The Leeds Office Agents’ Forum (LOAF) has released its quarterly office take-up figures for the Leeds office market which, for the first three months of 2014, show a positive start to the year.

DePuy Building

DePuy Building

Activity in Leeds city centre for the first quarter (Q1 2014) reached 140,778 sq ft across 41 deals. Whilst this is a 40% decrease in take-up compared to the same period last year the Forum points to Q1 2013 being exceptionally high by Leeds’ standards and the start to 2014 signals continuing confidence in the market.  The largest office letting in Q1 2014 was University of Law’s relocation from York to 15 – 16 Park Row agreeing to 26,337 sq ft of space.

Richard Dunn, Partner at Sanderson Weatherall, said

2013 set a real precedent as Leeds recorded the best office take-up for over 15 years – levels we are unlikely to repeat at present given relatively constrained stock levels.  That said, the completion of 41 city centre transactions in the first three months is extremely healthy, though we are still finding that deals continue to take time to complete.”

Grade A supply continues to become more constrained although the Forum points to the upcoming practical completions at Evan’s Minerva, MEPC’s 10 Wellington Place and later in 2014, Formal Investments’ 21 Queen Street, which will help address this. Other office refurbishments will also add to the supply chain over the year.

Developers are well aware of the supply/demand imbalance and the question on everyone’s lips is when we will see a return of speculative or largely speculative development.

Business Rates in the April 2014 Budget

The Chancellor of the Exchequer’s April 2014 budget is another missed opportunity to help the struggling business ratepayers of the north.

It was already known that the chancellor had provided a minor fillip for UK retailers by knocking £1,000 off their rates bills and limiting the uniform business rates increase to 2%, but this is really just nibbling at the edges of the problem.

Whilst Mr Osborne did announce a welcome three-year extension to enterprise zones and a brand new zone for Coleraine in Northern Ireland, coupled with an unexpected and welcome cut in energy costs for manufacturing businesses, there was no measure which addressed the issue of business rates.

Eighteen months ago the coalition government controversially postponed the intended 2015 Rating Revaluation planned from a time when it was most needed, until 2017. The result has been that northern ratepayers continue to heavily subsidise London and the south of England, where media reports now regularly report a rapid economic recovery. The cranes have returned to the London skyline, but one must ask what help is there for the north?

Why the government continues to prevaricate on business rates when urgent steps are both needed and could easily be taken is a modern mystery.

We have been lobbying for some time for the postponed revaluation to be brought forward to 2016, a move which the Valuation Office Agency could readily cope with, coupled with a commitment to future revaluations occurring more often, every three years.

In a similar vein it has also been recommended a new tax be levied on online internet sales at point of sale, with 100% of the new revenues gained being dropped into the national business rates pot to provide new reliefs for struggling high street retailers.

We advocate a new look at methods of valuation applied to high street shops to put them on a level playing field with pubs and petrol filling stations, where fair maintainable trade and petrol throughput become determining factors towards the level of assessment.

There should also be a comprehensive review of current reliefs and exemptions as recommended by the 2007 Lyons Inquiry which, as well as creating new concessions, may result in the removal of some current ones.

Last but not least, a considerable number of small assessments which attract the sheer numbers of appeals could at a stroke be removed from rateability altogether, thereby exempting many small businesses from rates altogether.

A reform of the Business Rating system is thankfully now being proposed following the report on 4th March 2014 of the House of Commons Business Innovation and Skills Committee …now they just need to get on with it!

New data shows Leeds office take-up highest on record for 15 years

A surge in occupier demand for office space in Leeds last year has resulted in the best take-up figures for over 15 years providing further evidence of the recovery in regional leasing markets as economic conditions improve according to newly released data from the Leeds Office Agents’ Forum (LOAF).

According to office market data compiled by the leading commercial property agents in Leeds, 2013 occupier take-up in the city centre reached a full year total of 794,043 sq ft, the largest transactional volume for 15 years and a 96 per cent increase compared with 2012 (405,951 sq ft). Out-of-town activity reached 491,082 sq ft, a 44 per cent increase on the previous year (340,374 sq ft).

Specifically in Quarter 4 (Q4) transactional activity in Leeds city centre totalled 254,798 sq ft across 34 deals, a phenomenal 262 per cent increase on the same quarter last year (70,361 sq ft). Activity was boosted by two larger sized deals: Leeds City Council taking 50,000 sq ft of new, additional space at Merrion House and KPMG agreeing terms on 28,271 sq ft at Broadgate.

The out-of-town market recorded 200,987 sq ft in the last three months of 2013, a 203 per cent increase compared with the same quarter last year (66,370 sq ft). Of the 22 deals to complete, the largest was Lowell Group taking 81,911 sq ft at Leeds Valley Park.

Richard Dunn, Partner in Agency commented:

As we expected, Q4 take-up has been strong with some sizeable new lettings both within the city centre and out-of-town markets. In all, we’ve seen the best level of transactional activity for over 15 years; driven in part by improving confidence in the wider economy which has had a positive ‘knock on’ effect on occupier sentiment and ultimately their confidence to make property decisions.

The pre let market is well and truly back evidenced across the year by the deals involving Leeds City Council, KPMG and Shulmans. The level of smaller sized deals below 5,000 sq ft, of which there were 18 in the city centre and 16 in the out-of town market in Q4, shows that whilst encouragingly the activity has been driven by expansion we are continuing to see the usual churn of lease events and consolidation.

Whilst 2013 take up levels make for great headlines the supply of available new quality accommodation has obviously reduced even further with less than 200,000 sq ft of Grade A space currently available which is approximately just nine months average Grade A take-up. This extremely low level supply means that currently only one building can realistically accommodate a requirement over 30,000 sq ft. There is now a genuine opportunity for developers and property owners to focus on building speculatively and complete high quality Grade A refurbishments.

The Leeds Office Agents’ Forum was established to collate and distribute definitive market information. Its members include Sanderson Weatherall, BNP Paribas, Carter Towler, CBRE, Colliers International, DTZ, Eddisons, GVA, Jones Lang LaSalle, Knight Frank, Lambert Smith Hampton, Savills and WSB.
