Roundthorn Industrial Estate, which is located within Manchester Airport’s City Enterprise Zone, has been sold in a deal worth £6.8 million.

Foreign investors have helped boost the UK commercial property market, a new report from DTZ Research has indicated.

Commercial agent DTZ has been working in partnership with Burnley Council on a market demand study for an education and enterprise park adjacent to the £80m University of Central Lancashire and College campus.

DTZ, the global real estate adviser, has further expanded its regional media team in the UK with the appointment of Hannah Gurnham as Marketing and Communications Executive to raise the profile of the company’s work for its client base across the north of England.

DTZ’s flagship annual Money into Property report predicts that the worst of the property slump is over and forecasts that global invested stock will grow by 5 per cent in 2010. UK invested stock is expected to rise by 8 per cent this year as capital values continue their recovery.

Commercial agent DTZ estimates that £36 billion of capital will be available for investment in real estate in the UK in 2010. This is double the £18 billion of capital transacted in the last 12 months.
