Land Securities looks to invest for the future

Property powerhouse Land Securities has today announced plans for an expansion of its property portfolio and a further assessment of two major developments in London's West End planned for next year, even though they had been put on ice as the recession continued to bite.

Slowly but surely we have seen interest in the UK commercial property market where prices have fallen by 44% since the peak back in 2007. A number of investors believe a 45% to 50% peak to trough cycle is most likely which would indicate that the bottom of the market may not be too far away. While finance for commercial property developments in the short to medium term may be difficult to obtain, companies such as Land Securities may well need to re-balanced their portfolios and reconsider some of their investments.

The company is adamant that London's West End will be one area of the UK commercial property market which bounces back quicker than the average, something which should slowly start to filter through to the rest of the UK commercial property market. It would be wrong to suggest that the whole commercial property market has turned positive on the short to medium term outlook but many believe that Land Securities will not be alone in looking at new investments over the coming months.
