Investment in Tokyo property is expected to accelerate in the second half of 2018, as Japanese and overseas property buyers take advantage of strong house price growth ahead of the government's consumption tax increase, expected in October 2019.

Data from the Real Estate Economic Institute predicts a positive outlook for the city’s residential markets through the rest of 2018. The supply of new condominiums is set to grow by 4.4 percent or more, year-on-year, in the greater Tokyo area, even as average sale prices approach historic peak levels.

Sale prices are expected to remain strong in Tokyo's central wards in particular, where major redevelopment projects and booming tech and creative industries are attracting talent from the wider area and overseas. This is increasing demand for all types of housing, including larger homes with amenities to support a healthy, family living.

Shinagawa is one of the areas experiencing strong price appreciation, driven by a rapidly growing population in need of convenient housing. Located close to one of Tokyo's major transport hubs, new condominium projects opening their doors in Shinagawa's affluent neighborhoods offer excellent opportunities to residents and investors alike.

Shinagawa Station area

One of Tokyo's busiest stations, Shinagawa Station is connected to all corners of the city and beyond via six rail lines, including the busy Yamanote Line, the Shinkansen bullet train, and direct connections to nearby Haneda and Narita Airports. The surrounding area has long been a favorite with developers, and regeneration is underway to capitalize on strong demand for apartments, offices, restaurants and retail premises close to the station.

The area around the Konan Exit to the east of the station has already undergone extensive redevelopment, including the rise of the gleaming skyscrapers of the Shinagawa Grand Commons and Intercity commercial complexes as well as the World City Towers condominiums.

The Takanawa Exit to the west is surrounded by hotels and shopping malls, including the Shinagawa Prince Hotel complex that is home to a cinema, bowling alley and aquarium. As part of Shinagawa Station's redevelopment, an elevated pedestrian deck will offer direct access to the Prince Hotel, which is being converted to offer business facilities including offices and meeting rooms by 2027.

Shirokane and Takanawa

Homes in prime residential districts close to Shinagawa Station are in high demand from Tokyo’s professionals and investors following the announcement that a new station will be opened nearby by 2024 to improve access to Haneda Airport.

Shirokane and Takanawa are two of Tokyo's plushest neighborhoods and are within walking distance of the stations to their west. Shirokane ('platinum' in Japanese) is the closer of the two to the new JR station and is known for its gourmet restaurants and traditional cafes, while Takanawa is closer to Shinagawa Station.

New high-rise developments in Shirokane include The Parkhouse Shirokane Nichome Tower, a collection of 172 luxury apartments by Mitsubishi Jisho Residence opening in August 2018. This 27-story residential tower has the latest seismic isolation systems to protect from earthquake damage and is in a remarkably green area, given that it is only a five-minute walk from Shirokanedai subway station.

Shinagawa Seaside area

South of Shinagawa Station, the Shinagawa Seaside area is another favorite with Tokyo’s commuters, combining scenic views over Tokyo Bay and access to the Shinagawa Seaside Forest, with convenient transport connections to the airport  and the major commercial hubs of Shinagawa, Ebisu, Shibuya and Shinjuku.

Since Shinagawa Seaside Station opened in 2002, alongside amenities such as hotels and shopping malls, properties in the area have seen higher rental increases than most central Tokyo districts, making it a popular with landlords.

Prime Parks Shinagawa Seaside The Tower is a major residential project that will offer 817 residences in the natural surroundings of Shinagawa Seaside Forest. A collaboration between five developers, this collection of two-, three- and four-bedroom apartments also has a roof garden and children's play area and is scheduled to open in late March 2019.

Long overshadowed by London and Paris, Berlin has steadily risen to prominence over the past decade as the most attractive European capital city for commercial and residential property investment.

Germany's political and cultural center was named the most desirable city by investors for the fourth year running in PwC's Emerging Trends in Real Estate Europe 2018 survey, which saw German cities taking four of the top six places. Generating €9 billion in property deals in the first three quarters of 2017 according to Real Capital Analytics, Berlin is now Europe's second most active market after London.

While house prices and rents are increasing in all major European cities, Berlin's rapid growth is perceived to be more sustainable. That’s because the city's rising population and a restricted housing supply is maintaining a high level of demand. With a limited number of permits being granted each year, new builds in prime city center locations offer profitable prospects to overseas buyers looking for investment or buy-to-let properties.

 

Why Berlin?

Berlin appeals to people from all walks of life – from students and young people drawn by its vibrant culture and nightlife to families seeking a higher quality of life and businesspeople tapping into one of Europe's largest economies. In a time of global uncertainty, Germany has remained relatively stable economically and politically, earning its capital a reputation as a safe haven for investment.

 

Last year saw Berlin's GDP grow by 2.2 percent, its strongest performance in six years, following significant growth of 48 percent between 2005 and 2016. As well as being home to the headquarters of Germany's largest companies, from Axel Springer to Zalando, Berlin is also a growing technology hub with a thriving start-up scene, aided by funding initiatives such as Google's Factory Berlin.

With 47 universities and technical colleges in the area, there's no shortage of talented workers or students in need of accommodation in a city where renting, not buying, is the norm. Only 14 percent of Berlin residents own their homes, which combined with a low vacancy rate of 1.5 percent makes the city a perfect fit for landlords.

 

High demand, low supply

Limited housing has been driving up prices and rents in Berlin for a decade, but the market became even more tightly squeezed during the refugee crisis, when population growth peaked at 61,000 new arrivals in 2016. Growth has been slowing since, but the population is still predicted to increase by an average of 3 percent each year to 2030 as Berlin continues to be an appealing destination for migrants from elsewhere in Europe and further afield.

Berlin's strict housing policy is contributing to the supply shortage, with the city only issuing a limited number of permits for new-build constructions each year. A record 22,000 permits were issued in 2017, increasing construction activity across the city over the next few years, but further increases are unlikely owing to a shortage of available land and high land prices. This will keep the supply of new apartments in Berlin significantly below the level of demand forecast in the coming years, fueling the rise in rents and property prices.

Rents in Berlin grew by 9.1 percent in 2017 to €11.10 per square meter per month. Rents are highest in the central districts of Mitte, Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf and Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, with Mitte having the highest median rent at €13.95/sqm/month for existing apartments and €16.75 for new builds. Mitte also has the most expensive house prices, with condominiums selling for an average of €4,990/sqm (€6,560/sqm for new builds).

 

Berlin's fastest growing district, Mitte, is a major focus of development activity with more residential projects and completions than any other part of the city. These include the new residential quarter Luisenpark Berlin-Mitte by Instone Real Estate Development.

The Tokyo 2020 Olympics have accelerated regeneration efforts in Japan's high-tech capital, with the country preparing to welcome a record 33 million foreign visitors that year, but these 'once-in-a-century' redevelopment projects will also bring about longer term gains.

Already one of the most urbanized nations on Earth, Japan's urban population continues to rise with an estimated 94.3% of people living in cities in 2018, according to the World Factbook. This centralization is evident in Tokyo itself, as the megacity draws more and more people from surrounding cities every year and its residents cluster around its bustling central business districts.

These sub-metropolitan ‘cities-in-the-city’ each have defining characteristics that appeal to different demographics. Now, an unprecedented level of public and private investment in transport infrastructure, commercial facilities, and public amenities is enhancing these attributes to make Tokyo's CBDs even more appealing.

 

Shinjuku & Shibuya: home of youth, fashion and creative industry

Two of the capital's largest urban centers (or fukutoshin), Shinjuku and Shibuya are neighboring districts in Western Tokyo that have a lot in common, including being home to Tokyo's two busiest train stations. However, those who spend any time exploring their neon streets and hangouts will quickly learn to spot the difference.

Shinjuku is the larger and louder of the two. Tokyo's answer to Manhattan's Greenwich Village, Shinjuku is the city's most fashionable night spot and boasts the largest concentration of skyscrapers in Tokyo, including legendary architect Kenzo Tange's imposing Tokyo Metropolitan Government building and Shinjuku Park Tower.

Shinjuku Station is one of the busiest in the world, with more than 3.5 million passengers passing through its 200 gates in an orderly fashion every weekday. Many of Japan's biggest companies have their headquarters close to Shinjuku Station, including electronics giants Olympus and Seiko Epson, auto manufacturer Subaru, and game developer Square Enix.

Shibuya is no less lively, especially of the area outside Shibuya Station where up to 2,500 pedestrians cross its famous five-way scramble crossing every time the traffic lights change. Shibuya has a youthful and creative personality; it’s been a major technology hub since the 1990s and is home to many start-ups today, with facilities to support both foreign and domestic creative content industries.

The Shibuya Station area redevelopment is one of the largest regeneration projects currently underway in Tokyo. This 15-year masterplan will streamline transport links, create new public plazas, and add approximately 9.5 million square feet of commercial and retail space in earthquake-resistant skyscrapers by 2027.

Both districts have long been sought-after addresses in Tokyo, and new residential projects are addressing this high demand. Scheduled to open its doors in December, The ParkOne's Shibuya Honmachi by leading developer Mitsubishi Jisho Residence will offer 118 family-friendly apartments with convenient access to both CBDs, just 4 minutes from Shinjuku and 10 minutes from Shibuya.

 

Ginza: high-end shopping, fine dining and fine art

Ginza's high street and luxury department stores are quieter than Shinjuku's or Shibuya's, their more expensive price tags attracting a more select and mature clientele. Popular with Tokyo's wealthy for more than a century, and more recently a favorite of Asian tourists, Ginza is the go-to destination for prestigious global brands like Apple, Cartier, and Rolex, as well as premium local boutiques selling the finest Japanese wines and delicacies.

Beyond retail therapy, Ginza has plenty to offer foodies and culture vultures, with 43 Michelin-starred restaurants, more private art galleries than any other part of Tokyo, and the city's most famous kabuki theater, Kabuki-za. Its commercial district is home to blue chip companies such as local airline ANA and tech giants Fujitsu and Panasonic.

What Ginza has traditionally lacked is residential properties, with only 1.22% of condominiums built in the wider Chuo-ku ward since 2008 having a Ginza address. This is slowly changing as projects such as the sophisticated PIAS Ginza 8-chome residence by high-end developer Morimoto come onto the market, located close to metro stations, amenities and schools.

 

Omotesando: cultural treasures, peaceful parks and inspiring architecture

Passing through Shibuya ward, but a world away from its crowds and sensory overload, tree-lined Omotesando road in Tokyo's cultural quarter Aoyama is a peaceful alternative for shopping and dining that's easier on the wallet than Ginza's high street.

Branching into youth fashion district Harajuku and traditional Cat Street along the way, Omotesando has something for everyone, even if you're just enjoying the fresh air and admiring the distinctive prize-winning architecture of its flagship Dior, Louis Vuitton, and Prada stores that come to life when illuminated at night.

Away from the skyscrapers of the bustling CBDs, apartments in Omotesando tend to be low-rise. The Parkhouse Urbance Omotesando is a new collection of compact studios and two-bedroom apartments within 10 minutes' walk of 5 metro and JR lines. Expecting its first residents in April next year, units are ideal for simple, contemporary living and already available for overseas property buyers and investors.

Tokyo's successful bid to host the 2020 Summer Olympics and Paralympics has accelerated the pace of urban regeneration in Japan's high-tech capital. As well as the new sports venues, hotels and transport upgrades catering to international visitors during the events, the Japanese government and Tokyo Metropolitan Government are also investing heavily in long-term improvements within the city's rapidly growing CBDs.

Japan's population is becoming increasingly urbanized, with Tokyo in particular drawing an influx of workers, entrepreneurs and students from surrounding regions to its thriving central wards. The international population is also on the rise, with global companies being tempted by lower corporate taxes and relaxed visa rules in Tokyo's Special Economic Zones. Overseas property buyers can also benefit from cheaper stamp duties and a lower price index compared to other major world cities such as Hong Kong, London and Shanghai.

The most high-profile redevelopments are primarily located in Shibuya, the trendy heart of the capital that has also been a major hub of tech and creative industries since the 1990s. The Shibuya Station area is currently in the midst of a “once-in-a-century” regeneration which is aiming to establish the district as a world-leading business and entertainment center to rival the likes of London, Paris and New York.

 

Shibuya regeneration

Tokyo's answer to Times Square, the Shibuya Station area is the iconic image of Tokyo. Home of the world's busiest train station, the famous scramble crossing and the statue of loyal dog Hachiko, this popular meeting place is also a haven for startups and international headquarters, for example, Mixi, online Japanese social media company like Facebook, its headquarter is located in Shibuya.

The Shibuya regeneration is adding to these landmarks to make the area even more appealing to businesses and investors, with an extensive development plan involving over nine million square feet of new buildings and infrastructure. These include:

 

    Shibuya Hikarie – this 183-meter skyscraper was the first phase of the redevelopment and was completed in 2012. It houses offices and conference facilities, restaurants, shops and the Tokyu Theatre Orb, which hosts Broadway musicals and other entertainment.

    Shibuya Station Building  – a new 230-meter skyscraper adjacent to the rebuilt station and scheduled for completion in 2019. Its rooftop observation deck will offer panoramic views over the city that stretch as far as Mount Fuji.

    Shibuya Station South – another 180-meter skyscraper will be constructed on the former site of the redirected Tokyu Toyoko Line railway, housing office space, a hotel and services for creative startups.

 •   Dogenzaka – a new commercial and office building will be erected near the existing Shibuya Mark City complex.

 •   Sakuragaoka – this area south of the station will be home to a new 180-meter office tower and 150-meter condominium targeted at foreign buyers.

 •   Shibuya River – this overlooked waterway running through the district will be turned into an attractive pedestrian plaza that is expected to open later this year.

Further commercial buildings of various sizes will follow in the second phase of the redevelopment which will carry through to 2027 and is expected to unlock even more of Shibuya's potential.

Solving the housing shortage

With more local and international talent being drawn to the district, the already high demand for accommodation in Shibuya is skyrocketing, especially for larger family homes. Only 20 percent of condominiums in Shibuya currently have two or three bedrooms, compared to the 50 percent average for other central Tokyo wards. New residential developments are addressing this shortfall.

It may be the world's most powerful financial center and have a huge appeal for tourists, but there's a less showy side to London that makes the UK capital a timelessly appealing place to live. Look beyond the shimmering skyline and you'll find a world of red brick Victorian mansions, tranquil waterways, and sprawling Royal Parks.

The impending launch of the new Crossrail service by year's end is making certain areas of London even more attractive to residents and investors alike, with our research forecasting house price growth of 16 percent above the Greater London average by 2020.

Among the best connected stations on the new line will be Paddington, which lies within walking distance of leafy residential neighborhood Maida Vale. Combining classic red-brick charm with this convenient Crossrail connection, the affluent W2 district offers more affordable house prices than nearby St. John’s Wood, Notting Hill or Mayfair. Garrett Mansions is a new property in Maida Vale by leading developer Berkeley Homes that updates the traditional mansion square for the 21st century.

 

Serenity in the city

Renowned for its peace and quiet and the canal side cafes of ‘Little Venice,’ Maida Vale offers the experience of close-knit village living while still being enviably close to London's top sights and destinations, from Harrods to Buckingham Palace. Home to the BBC's Maida Vale Studios, the area has long attracted musical talent, some notable residents including singers Björk, Jarvis Cocker and Noel Gallagher.

Garrett Mansions is less than 15 minutes' walk from two of London's most famous parks—Hyde Park to the south and Regent's Park to the north-east—totaling a combined 760 acres of green space. The boutiques of Marylebone High Street are less than 20 minutes on foot, and it's not much further to the cultural charms of SoHo and fine dining in Mayfair.

Families with children will also be spoiled for choice when it comes to exceptional education options. Local St. Saviour's primary school is rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, and notable universities including the University of Westminster, Regent's University London and London School of Economics are all within easy reach.

For getting around the city and beyond, the district is as well-connected as you'd expect for prime Zone 1 London. Edgware station offers access to four Underground lines just a minute's walk from Garrett Mansions and it's also a short walk to Paddington station and Crossrail, taking you to Heathrow Airport in 21 minutes.

 

Classic style with modern amenities

Garrett Mansions is part of the larger West End Gate development that's reimagining the London mansion block for the modern age. Architects Squire and Partners designed the red brick buildings to blend sympathetically with their period surroundings, overlooking a serene private garden.

This classically-inspired design continues inside the apartments, which are characterized by warm bronze and heritage tones, and feature engineered timber flooring, integrated appliances, and bespoke fittings. Residents can also access exclusive amenities at the development's Westmark building, including a swimming pool, fully-equipped gym and spa, private lounge, dining and cinema rooms, and a 24-hour concierge.

Berkeley Homes Sales and Marketing Director, Simon Howard, says the West End Gate development offers an excellent opportunity to overseas property buyers. “With great design, amenities and location, the mid-range pricing opens up room for investment growth,” he explains.

“With the current and predicted lack of supply, it's a safe option for an investor. With the area’s new transport connections, the opening of Crossrail, and the prestigious, established locations all around, I see it as a very good opportunity.”

“Sales to date have been successful and we look forward to welcoming first residents in Summer 2022. Thanks to the Northern Line Extension, and local development contributions – where we are providing an abundance of green spaces, including a new park – we are already seeing the area dramatically taking shape as it transforms into London’s coolest riverside neighbourhoods.”

Dickie Wong, Deputy Chairman and Executive Director of C C Land, said: “Together with R&F, we’re delighted that Thames City is already set to launch its second building, as its development pipeline continues to be delivered at strength and pace.

“We look forward to welcoming residents next year, and look forward to many upcoming announcements – across residential, commercial and public realm – over the next few months, as Thames City is transformed into prime Central London’s most in demand 15 minute neighbourhood.”

Nick Whitten, Head of UK Residential & Living Research at JLL, said: Elevating London luxury living, Thames City provides a unique and unparalleled opportunity south of the river. Rivalling many traditional and prestigious neighbourhoods, many buyers and investors look to prosperous Zone One locations – such as Nine Elms – where there is both opportunity and investment potential.

“The London property market is witnessing an increase in rental demand, following pent up activity as a result of the pandemic. Building No.9 Thames City, which welcomes first residents next year, presents a unique and central riverside opportunity in the early stages of growing interest and demand in the area. Furthermore, excellent new transport connections, such as the recent opening of the Northern Line Extension station, are highlighting the area’s potential as a Prime district.”

Placing wellness and open space at the heart of this Zone One London location, a Great Lawn, network of walkways, cycle paths and intimate green spaces along the river will provide residents and the public a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Prices for Building No.9 Thames City start from: £799,000 (about HKD 8.37 million) and is on the market with international agents JLL.
