Office and Retail Investment

May 2018

Limited supply in core office areas has shifted attention to decentralized markets with rents and prices in both segments firming up. Suburban retail also saw higher activity levels due to a lack of available stock in traditional districts.

The office sales and investment market remained active over the first quarter with values headed firmly up.

After the initial bulk sale, the potential strata sale of The Center may be delayed with the possibility of a footbridge linkage to Central Market enhancing its value.

Over in Kowloon East the market is moving at a brisk pace driven more by investors than owner-occupiers.

The investment focus of the retail market over the first three months of 2018 also shifted to suburban retail.

Looking ahead, both office and retail values should continue to rise given limited stock and strong local and PRC appetite.
