The estate has been purchased off-market from a private seller for an undisclosed price, and includes an opportunity to acquire a further adjacent six-acre plot. SEGRO intends to redevelop the site on a phased basis between 2022 and 2027, delivering a mix of best-in-class, sustainable, light industrial and urban distribution units. 

The site is located in the Belvedere Industrial Area in the London Borough of Bexley, an established location which is home to a mix of users including food and beverage, trade and builders’ merchants, e-commerce and parcel delivery. Local occupiers include Amazon, Tesco, Ocado, ASDA, Lidl and Iron Mountain.

Alan Holland, Managing Director for Greater London, SEGRO said:

“The purchase of this industrial estate in the Belvedere sub-market will complement our existing Greater London portfolio and supports our urban growth strategy in south east London. 

“The site provides strong future growth potential given the large-scale residential development, future regeneration plans, infrastructure improvements and loss of existing industrial land, particularly in nearby Charlton and Woolwich. In this context we believe there will be strong demand for sustainable, Grade A buildings in the area for urban logistics and light industrial uses which we will be able to help meet through this redevelopment, creating new employment opportunities at the same time.”

The site redevelopment will align with the company’s Responsible SEGRO priorities to enable it to make the greatest business, environmental and social contribution to its local areas. The redevelopment will be net zero carbon and will include a range of environmental sustainability features. Improved building and wellbeing facilities will be included providing important amenity and outdoor space for those working on the estate.

SEGRO was advised on this transaction by Montagu Evans LLP.
