According to CBRE's Towards 2020: China Investment Strategy report, commercial property transactions in China will grow to RMB 260 billion ($39 billion USD) by 2020, a 45% increase from 2016.

Commercial property investors are allocating more capital to real estate worldwide, with Asian investors now accounting for five of the 10 biggest cross-border spenders.

Asia hotel investors during the first half of 2017 remained focused on gateway cities such as Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney and Melbourne, as they offer positive tourism and trading fundamentals.

CBRE is reporting that investors in Asia Pacific real estate in 2017 remain heavily focused on yield spreads when seeking assets as investment intentions, and are moving further away from capital appreciation strategies.

According to CBRE Research's latest annual Global Prime Office Occupancy Costs report, Hong Kong (Central) and London's West End topped the list of prime office occupancy costs again.
