Industrial & Logistics

Real estate intelligence for whatever the future holds.

Urban Intelligence is supporting a top-100 global investment manager with plans for a new urban logistics fund.

With demand ever-increasing for space to enable more sophisticated supply chains; from the factory or port of entry, to the distribution centre and the last mile, our client is in the process of establishing a new urban logistics fund to capitalise on this growing opportunity. Our analysis has informed our client’s business plan with intelligence on drive-time catchments, and market data, including age and incomes within prospective site proximities.

Additionally, UI is offering intelligence and modelling on locations of existing facilities including competitors and coverage gaps across the UK, highlighting opportunities and competitive risks. UI is also providing impact assessments; from the short term implications of COVID-19 and Brexit, to longer-term consumer trends.

Special Projects

Identifying sites for the most complex use cases.

Urban Intelligence is advising Leicester City Council on locations for a future waste recycling facility.

LCC has appointed Urban Intelligence to assist with the appraisal of new candidate locations for a waste recycling centre. By working with our client to identify a range of geospatial search criteria and requirements, we have been able to design an algorithm to analyse sites across the city.

The project involves considering individual site opportunities from an access and catchment perspective, and scores and weights potential constraints such as; air quality, noise, sustainability (including carbon impact), planning policy, existing ownership and much more.
