Event Summary

Central London's investments accounted

£2.5B

in Q1
, a

44%

drop on the same period in 2017. While overall activity has decreased, we are seeing a lot of new entrants in the London market: U.K.

buyers are increasingly forming JV’s with overseas investors to target assets for redevelopment, South Korean and

South African

investors are moving from continental Europe to London,

and Hong Kong is still retaining a presence in London.

As we move into the second half of the year, who will be buying in London and what areas and assets will they target?

The biggest letting deal

thus far

was a

212K SF transaction

in White City — will we see similar areas

being favored? Will

investment volume in London

beat last year’s figures or will we continue

to see a downward trend?

And how will

the projected downturn in 2019/2020

affect lending activities?



Join us in September for our London Office Update 2018, a deep dive into the city's mega office market! We'll be talking about investment activity, red-hot developments, and how letting demand and the current economic environment are

penetrating and disrupting the office landscape.
