Decentralised and demystified: JLL uncovers key trends shaping the future of Beijing’s office market/china/en-gb/news/592/beijing-office-report-enDecentralised and demystified: JLL uncovers key trends shaping the future of Beijing’s office market<p><span style="font-size:16px;">​<em>​Chinese multinationals will shift into overdrive as market continues to grow and mature</em></span></p><p><strong>BEIJING, April 6, 2017</strong> – A genuine decentralised office market – separate in form and function from the increasingly mature central areas – is imminently set to emerge, as Beijing continues along the path towards maturity to earn its place am​​​​​​​​ong the world's top office markets, according to new research from JLL (NYSE: JLL). The company's latest whitepaper '<strong>No Turning Back - Beijing's Office Market Set to Shine</strong>' highlights key trends as it explores the future of the Beijing office market from three aspects: geographical landscape, demand prospects, and office building features.</p><p><span style="text-align:justify;">"We have reached a key turnin​g point in the evolution of the <a href="" target="_blank">Beijing office market​</a>," says E</span><strong style="text-align:justify;">ric Hirsch, Head of Markets, JLL Beijing</strong><span style="text-align:justify;">. "As the market continues to mature, abundant new supply is coming online and domestic occupiers are dominating the market. Under intensifying competition, more companies are requiring better quality buildings, particularly as health and productivity take on new levels of urgency in the race for talent."</span></p><h3><strong>The new landscape – a bigger market for a growing city</strong></h3><p>Alongside the rise of new landmark developments in the CBD that are set to redefine the skyline in the central areas, Beijing will witness the rise of a decentralised market, driven by the development of Lize and Tongzhou.</p><p><span style="text-align:justify;">"With the second-highest Grade A office rents in Asia, major expansion in urban rail mass transit, and one of the tightest office market globally, the time for decentralisation in Beijing is upon us," says </span><strong style="text-align:justify;">Steven McCord, Head of Research for JLL North China</strong><span style="text-align:justify;">. "In turn, this is driving a re-categorisation of submarkets, in which the set of "core" areas will grow to include rapidly maturing areas such as Wangjing, as the central areas are separated from the new, decentralised market that will stand apart on its own."</span></p><p><span style="text-align:justify;"></span><span style="text-align:justify;">The report adds that underlying demand for decentralised office space will be further bolstered by the regional integration policy or "Jing-Jin-Ji", which is expected to fuel business activity outside of Beijing and lead companies to require faster access to peripheral locations.</span></p><h3><strong>The demand story – domestic firms start to dominate</strong></h3><p>Now accounting for 59% of the leasable Grade A space in the market, domestic firms have shown sharp growth in their share of occupied space across the city in the last year, according to the report which based findings on JLL's annual survey of 70 Grade A office buildings in Beijing. "As market maturation continues, we expect to see this trend deepen and domestic firms increasingly dominate the market, similar to how US firms make up the majority of the New York market," says Eric. "Key sources of future demand will come from the rise of the finance sector, the upgrade trajectory of IT firms, and in the internationalisation of China's burgeoning global companies."</p><p><span style="text-align:justify;">Additionally, China's 'One Belt, One Road' policy is set to put domestic companies into overdrive and contribute to demand for headquarters operations in Beijing. "As homegrown giants expand overseas and require more office space to oversee this activity from a dependable home base, the Chinese capital will have the most to gain as it is already home to a high-density of decision-makers, in both state-owned enterprises and private-sector firms," </span><strong style="text-align:justify;">McCord</strong><span style="text-align:justify;"> adds.</span></p><h3><strong>Building for the best – stepping up standards to meet global benchmarks like The Shard in London</strong></h3><p>New buildings continue to raise baseline standards in the market, and this has helped the quality of office buildings in Beijing make large strides in recent years. The most concrete standards having advanced the fastest, but better hardware is still needed, the report states, drawing from data collected at more than 200 buildings in the city. For example, 86% of buildings in Beijing have ceiling heights that are on par with global benchmarks, while only 27% of Grade A buildings in Beijing are filtering the air sufficiently to manage bad-air days.</p><p><span style="text-align:justify;">"As the business world continues to evolve, tenants need buildings with better infrastructure that allow for greater flexibility in layout and function," says </span><strong style="text-align:justify;">Hirsch</strong><span style="text-align:justify;">. "The amount of money required to develop a top-notch building over a low-specification building is increasingly dwarfed by the rising price of land, which is incentivizing developers to build quality as a boost to their long-term <a href="" target="_blank">investment</a>. This is a promising and necessary trend for the market."</span></p><p><span style="text-align:justify;"></span><span class="ms-rteThemeFontFace-1" style="text-align:justify;">By benchmarking existing and future buildings in Beijing against The Shard in London, one of the best-in-class globally, Beijing's position in the race to the top is clear. "Looking at some of the most visible features, the average building in Beijing compares favourably with The Shard," says </span><strong class="ms-rteThemeFontFace-1" style="text-align:justify;"><span lang="EN-GB" style="font-size:11pt;">McCord</span></strong><span lang="EN-GB" class="ms-rteThemeFontFace-1" style="text-align:justify;font-size:11pt;">.<span style="font-size:13px;"> “But as a market, Beijing is held back by its low provision of toilets and lifts relative to The Shard. However, with improved features, the next generation of buildings set to enter the Beijing CBD is destined to raise the overall level of sophistication for the Beijing market and narrow the gap in standards between Beijing buildings and The Shard.” </span></span><span class="ms-rteThemeFontFace-1" style="text-align:justify;font-size:13px;">​</span></p><p>Read more about <<a href="" target="_blank">No Turning Back – Beijing’s Office Market Set to Shine</a>​></p><p></p><p style="text-align:center;">​– ends –​​</p><p>​</p><em style="line-height:1.6;">>>>Read more about </em><em style="line-height:1.6;"><a href="" target="_blank">J​L​L Beijng​</a></em><br><p><em style="line-height:1.6;">>>>Read more about </em><em style="line-height:1.6;"><a target="_blank" href="" style="line-height:1.6;">JLL News</a><br></em><em style="line-height:1.6;">>>>Read more about​ </em><a target="_blank" href="" style="line-height:1.6;"><em>JLL Research</em></a></p><p>​​</p><span class="ms-rteFontSize-1 ms-rteThemeForeColor-5-0"><strong><em><br>About JLL</em></strong></span><p><span class="ms-rteFontSize-1">JLL (NYSE: JLL) is a professional services and investment management firm offering specialized real estate services to clients seeking increased value by owning, occupying and investing in real estate.

Weak sterling to draw surge of Asian investment to Britain post-Brexit/china/en-gb/news/591/jll-britain-real-estate-marketWeak sterling to draw surge of Asian investment to Britain post-Brexit<p>​<em style="font-size:16px;">JLL predicts ongoing interest from Asia Pacific and Middle East investors if sterling continues at a similar rate since referendum</em></p><p><em></em><strong>Shanghai, 30 March 2017 </strong>- As Theresa May triggers Article 50 to start the process of withdrawing from the EU, the depreciation of the pound has spurred increased investment in the UK from the Asia Pacific and Middle ​​​East regions, according to real estate firm JLL.</p><p><span style="text-align:justify;">The depreciation, coupled with a slight drop in capital values, has led UK commercial <a href="" target="_blank">real estate</a> to be discounted by 16 percent on average to overseas capital relative to pricing since the June 2016 vote, says JLL.</span></p><p><span style="text-align:justify;"></span><span style="text-align:justify;">Although currency movements have not had a strong historic correlation with overall international capital inflow into the UK, they are part of the reason why the market has experienced a recent surge in demand from buyers from the Asia Pacific region, headlined by Hong Kong and mainland China.</span></p><p><span style="text-align:justify;"></span><span style="text-align:justify;">"We continue to see the emergence of Chinese capital globally. Chinese investors now rank just behind US as the second largest source of global cross border capital and we expect them to have an increasing influence on the UK market," says </span><strong style="text-align:justify;">Alistair Meadows</strong><span style="text-align:justify;">, Head of UK Capital Markets at JLL. "Many investors from China and the wider Asia Pacific region are attracted to the depth, liquidity and familiarity of the UK market and come seeking diversification and safe haven forms of investment."</span></p><p><strong style="text-align:justify;">Stuart Crow</strong><span style="text-align:justify;">, Head of Asia Pacific Capital Markets, says: "Private investors have responded to the depreciation quickly and, as a result, they have become a more important driver of market sentiment and pricing. Despite the triggering of Article 50, as 2017 progresses we expect global funds and institutions to return their focus to the UK, in response to relatively attractive pricing and expected resilience among corporate occupiers. Speaking to our institutional clients in this region, many of them are actively looking for opportunities in London."</span></p><p><span style="text-align:justify;"></span><span style="text-align:justify;">Based on JLL forecasts and projections on currency by Oxford Economics, Chinese cross-border purchasers may enjoy total returns of five to 10 per cent in London office properties this year, after adjusting for expected currency movements. Singapore and Hong Kong investors will likely enjoy a similar rate of returns.</span></p><p><span style="text-align:justify;"></span><span style="text-align:justify;">Overall, overseas investors accounted for 48 per cent of transactional activity within the UK market in 2015 and a slightly higher 51 per cent in 2016, with the increase likely to be partly due to the currency movement. Asia Pacific and European (ex. UK) based investors recorded a surge of investment, with the Asia Pacific share rising from 17 per cent to 28 per cent, and Europe from 14 per cent to 23 per cent.</span></p><p><span style="text-align:justify;"></span><span style="text-align:justify;">In contrast, investment inflows from the Americas (primarily the US) fell from 32 per cent of total <a href="" target="_blank">overseas investment</a> into the UK to 17 per cent in 2016, with the share of global funds (where the ultimate source of capital is split across multiple countries) also falling. ​</span></p><p style="text-align:justify;">​</p><p style="text-align:center;">– ends –​​</p><p><br></p><div><p><em style="line-height:1.6;"><em style="line-height:1.6;">>>>Read more about</em><em style="line-height:1.6;"><a href="" target="_blank"> J​LL ​News</a><br></em>​<em style="line-height:1.6;">>>>Read more a​bout​ </em><a target="_blank" rel="nofollow" href="" style="line-height:1.6;"><em>JLL Research​​​</em></a></em></p><p><em style="line-height:1.6;"></em>​</p><span class="ms-rteFontSize-1 ms-rteThemeForeColor-5-0"><strong><em></em></strong></span><div><span class="ms-rteFontSize-1 ms-rteThemeForeColor-5-0"><strong><em>About JLL</em></strong></span><p>JLL (NYSE: JLL) is a leading professional services firm that specializes in real estate and investment management.
