SEGRO sells airport industrial estate for £79.5m

SEGRO has exchanged contracts to sell the Heston & Airlinks Industrial Estate near Heathrow Airport to Capital Industrial Four BV for £79.5m.

The multi-let Heston Industrial Estate is located to the north east of Heathrow Airport close to junction 3 of the M4 motorway and comprises 481,000 sq ft of warehouse space across 47 units.

The estate has a vacancy rate of around 1% and a weighted average lease length to break of 5.4 years.

The price reflects a topped-up net initial yield of 5.1% and a small premium to the book value at 30 June 2016. Completion is expected by the end of September.

Phil Redding, chief investment officer at SEGRO, said: “This disposal reflects both our desire to focus our portfolio on more modern and less management-intensive assets, as well as the continuing strong investor demand for multi-let warehouse assets in London. We intend to use the proceeds to help fund the development of new warehousing in our core markets.”
