Farmfoods snaps up 262,000 sq ft warehouse

Farmfoods has signed a 20-year lease for 262,000 sq ft distribution facility in Solihull as part of its ongoing expansion.

Logicor, one of the largest owners and operators of modern logistics and distribution properties in Europe, completed the 262,114 sq ft letting at Solihull 262 only 14 days after the previous tenant vacated.

Anthony McCluskie, director, asset management, UK, said: “Strong consumer demand is driving the UK e-commerce and food sectors to accelerate their long term strategic requirements for large Grade A logistics space. As such, we had a lot of interest in Solihull 262, with a high number of tenant viewings.

“The end result is the letting to Farmfoods on a long-term lease, with a very short void period. It was a pleasure to work with their ‘can-do’ team to accommodate their requirements and we look forward to a long-term relationship with this market-leading occupier.”

Farmfoods has been located in the adjacent unit to Solihull 262.

JLL, DTRE and McGuinness Waddington Real Estate (MWRE) acted as joint letting agents.
