 Operational Update

To coincide with the event, British Land provides updates on a range of key operational statistics for the period since 1 April 2019.

Further strong progress on Campus Leasing

At 100 Liverpool Street, Bank of Montreal have committed to 60,000 sq ft. SMBCE have committed to a further 22,000 sq ft, taking their total occupation to 184,000 sq ft. Our committed development pipeline is now 85% let or under offer, securing £54m of future rent.

Including the near term pipeline of 866,000 sq ft, comprising 1-2 Broadgate and Norton Folgate, we expect our development pipeline to deliver future development profits of c.£300 million.

Continued good performance in a challenging Retail market 

Retail leasing activity for the 5 months to August 2019 has totalled 500,000 sq ft, generating headline rents of £7.2 million, maintaining high occupancy of 97%. On average, deals were 3% ahead of ERV and reflect a 2% premium to previous passing rents.

We have continued to outperform operational benchmarks for the quarter ended June 2019 with like-for-like retail sales up +1.1%, outperforming the benchmark by 520 bps, with footfall broadly stable at -0.2%, outperforming the benchmark by 420 bps.
