Yes sorry, I should have written Consulate. Would a US Consulate be technically US soil, or does that only extend to Embassies?

Height restriction in Qianhai and Houhai means those areas might not get a single 400m+ building approved in near future

I know,sadly it seems like china resources will be just under 400m but there might still be hope for the Shenwan station towers and if that fails then the Caiwuwei and Futian megatalls can still be built free from height restrictions

This chart could be interesting for future skylines, because it is more likely that projects get realised if the prices rise, because it is more likely for the developer to profit. Futhermore rising prices imply that the demand grows too:

so India.. is actually slowing.. it's skyline will take longer to compete now..

and.. Singapore.. so it has finally cooled down. IMO, it really has peaked.. I don't expect anything exciting for Singapore in the medium term.



but HONGKONG?!!
wow.. can't imagine how people deal with real estate prices anymore...

RE: HK

probably house prices are fueled by inflation not by growth..
House prices isn't really directly proportional to growth.


In the case of the Philippines, there is real growth. Led mainly by office spaces due to growth of BPO offices.. 2nd are condo demands (also linked to BPO - increase in number of jobs/income).. third good growth in tourism.

Imo price doesnt really mean less projects because simply that price is expensive and developers still gaining profits. Unless price trend towards downside steeply then there will be less projects in the future.


In this case, korea and singapore has remain constructing many news projects that are exciting. In singapore it is only cooled down after NINE counter measures by government to calm the property price or else we would see singapore in the top 5 for being most ex. In fact its good to control property price to reduce inflation and remains affordable for every citizen.


I dunno how HK can be so high and yet growing at super high growth

Given the demand for Hong Kong properties, Hong Kong is building (relatively) very little projects. Also local opposition, environmental concerns and nimbyisum make an environment that is very anti-development. I guess that's where Shenzhen comes in to shore up supply. That's why Shenzhen's boom makes sense. It ran out of land like Hong Kong and is seeing a lot of demand spill over from Hong Kong.

I see but couldnt be HK government interfere on the rising price of housing?

They should follow Singapore as example, build more public housing and curb with more property measures such as higher Total Debt Service Ratio and Additional Buyer Stamp Duty.

AMAZING! Melbourne without doubt on the way to become the best skyline on Oceania and possibly on the southern hemisphere. It is also climbing fast on the world ranks! A good contender for Toronto in my opinion!

Melbourne has a very bright future. It seems as though just about every other day, a new 200 meter proposal surfaces.

There's no other city that reminds me of Toronto more than Melbourne. They're clones of each other and both rapidly ascendant.

They are still building tons of apartments, lots of +100m and +150m are U/C but very little higher profile projects. However land supply is still very tight because areas suitable land reclamation and sites for new towns are getting more and more difficult to find. In addition many housing and development projects have been hampered, scaled down and/or canceled due to environmental concerns and pressure from local residents. Infill development in urban areas have been met with fierce opposition from nimbys and issues of overdevelopment and overpopulation persist in those areas.
