Birmingham Property Report: Jan-Oct 2021

As we head towards the end of the year, we take the opportunity to celebrate Birmingham’s continued renaissance and look back at what has been happening in the West Midlands property market in recent months. 
December 8, 2021

2020 has been a year characterised by a lack of certainty as the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded around us.

Of course, there is an acceptance the events of the last year will inevitably change how we work forever, but with that comes a sense of optimism.

We have witnessed first-hand how the agile business has adapted to the new norm, not only to survive, but to do their upmost to thrive.

Employees are re-evaluating their working patterns and their priorities and business leaders are reacting to this in a way that will change building design, locations and leasing structures.

Now, almost a year on from the start of the pandemic, we have a better understanding about what we are all dealing with, which together with the roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccine, means we are starting to more confidence in the property market.

To help inform your strategic property decisions as you look ahead to 2021, and beyond, we explore the emerging trends that we are seeing across the Thames Valley office and industrial / logistics markets, with what to expect and how to plan ahead –  whether you are a landlord / investor, developer or occupier.
