Thomas Marriott, associate at B8RE, said: “The two most recent lettings at Mersey Reach demonstrate the strong levels of occupier demand for MLI (multi-let industrial) accommodation that we are still finding in the North West despite economic uncertainty.

“As shown in our B8 Real Estate Market update on North West Industrial & Logistics, take up of new build units under 15,000 sq ft, accounted for the majority of transactions in 2023 for new build units below 90,000 sq ft, for a second consecutive year.”
