#Asia Q1 outbound #CRE #investment strongest on record @cbreasia
Asian cross-border commercial real estate (CRE) investment in Q1 2015, at US$8.6 billion, constituted the strongest recorded Q1 outbound performance since major Asian outflows began. The first quarter of 2015 saw a departure from the historic trend, with CBRE Research reporting the US as the top destination for Asian outbound investment, with US$3.3 billion. Europe featured in second place, with US$2.5 billion. These include investment in standing assets only, while, beyond that, Asian investors are very actively perusing development opportunities – with at least $600 million known to have been invested in development in the Americas region in Q1 2015.
