Brewing up trouble - Thwaites is the latest brewer to move to a new brewery. Carlsberg and Holstein have also moved in the Midlands. Breweries are choosing now to invest, but why? And how many more have yet to make a move?

In this feature we’ll look at the last year in the South West office market and look forward to what the next 12 months could hold in store. Who did the biggest deals, which are the hot sectors and areas?
What are the key trends to watch out for? Will we see more unloved and tired office converted to residential – and what will take the place of that old stock?
This feature will be a comprehensive review of what’s new on the market taking into account all of the region’s key centres
Comments and relevant contacts by 8th September, latest, please.

Welcome to 2014's golden trove of features. These three will all appear in the EG retail supplement on 15th February but will be written this week and next. So I'll need intelligent comment and useful contacts by 15th January at the absolute latest.
Opticians: A look at how the market is doing.
Store within a store: Costa is in Primark, Asda has McDonald’s and Subway, and Tescos has Harris + Hoole. How do they get the right fit? What kind of leases do they need? And what strange bedfellows could work together?
Comments and contacts by 15th January 2014, latest.

Deadline for useful comment or contacts is Wednesday am this week, 16th October.
* Manchester's commercial property market is back in action: according to Deloitte Real Estate hotels, housing and student flats are leading in the city centre. We look at the big developments in these sectors.
* Two wasted years. It looks like there will be no new office development completing in Manchester city centre in 2015 and 2016. We look at this yawning gap in supply - and ask with landlords, and which refurbishments, will fill try to fill it.
* Southern Fringe. With Airport City now beginning to feel like it's getting airborne, we look at the south Manchester business parks from Wimslow through Didsbury to Stockport and Cheadle. Who is scoring deals, and who is (cautiously) thinking of refurbishment or new developments.
* Could Manchester be on the brink of scoring major inward investment wins? Rumours about big corporations looking for office space in the city are circulating with increasing velocity - are they true? What kind of demand is there for Manchester office space?
* Life of leisure: Will the re-focusing of Spinningfield's towards leisure occupiers work? And what now for Great Northern now that it has changed hands in a £70m plus deal?
* Where there's a warehouse, there's a will. Demand for sheds has never been stronger - we look at the next wave of North West developments and deals, and ask when rents will begin to rise.
