Stewart Rolfe, Director of Commercial Property at Andrew Scott Robertson commented: ‘”The strong performance of the South West London Industrial Market is further exemplified by these lettings where high quality units in close proximity to the City and West End remain a priority for occupiers. The current demand for such units together with the reduction in supply due to conversion to residential have led to a substantial increase in rental levels over the last 12-24 months and, specifically a 63% increase in rental values on this estate.
