The article focuses on the return of forward funding to the logistics property sector in Great Britain in 2014. It mentions a projection of 30 proposals to forward-fund warehouse developments before the business closes for Christmas, the so-called first-mover advantage in speculative development and the apparent modest growth in speculative development driven by forward funding. It also discusses the potential of rental growth in encouraging forward-funders to support speculative development.
