- Despite the pandemic lockdown, Bristol’s city centre office take up reached the half way point of 2020 ahead of last year and only 4% below the 5 year average.
- Bolstered by an exceptional start to the year and low vacancy rates, rents have maintained their pre-covid levels.
- As expected, the number of requirements nose-dived in April, only to bounce back up in May. Mostly driven by the smaller end of the market with lease events looming.
- Only one significant investment transaction took place in Q2, however momentum has been increasing, as the lockdown eased.

I previously worked for Bidwells Business Space Agency team in Cambridge (2003 -2008) where I specialised in office and research & development disposals and acquisitions.
Before this I worked for Chesterton International Plc in London. After qualifying as a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors in 2001, I remained in the City office agency team.
