Markets to Watch

Shanghai — Real estate acquisitions in 2009 increased 42 percent over the previous year, with 22 transactions totaling more than $3.6 billion, according to Jones Lang LaSalle. Office properties accounted for 79 percent of the deals. Domestic investors dominated the market with owner-occupiers accounting for half of the purchases.

Vancouver — While transaction volume in the first half of 2009 dipped to the lowest levels in seven years, two large office sales — $297 million and $84 million — helped the city’s investment profile, says Avison Young. Large institutional and private investors searching for trophy properties are now in a buying mode, as corporate tenants in one of North America’s tightest office markets are assessing their medium- and long-term needs.
