Revisions to the London plan have been released by Boris.

They estimated in 2011 that 322,000 houses were needed in London over the next 10 years.

It has now gone up to 424,000 houses minimum.

London built 18,000 new homes in 2013.
London is required to build 42,000 new homes per year.

These still won't meet targets due to London's unprecedented population boom.

New intensification areas have been included so further high rise hot spots. Old Kent Road has also been identified for min 2,500 homes. Close to Shard.

---

Anyway - end story. London is only going to be going up for a very long time.

'Foreign presence’ to alter London private housing market

The identity of London’s top 10 housebuilders will soon change as overseas investors look to “take a slice of London’s profitable housing market”, according to CBRE.

Barratt Homes, Bellway Homes and Berkeley Group currently contribute more than half of private home starts (53 per cent) in the capital.

But research by commercial property and investment firm CBRE shows Chinese, Singaporean, Malaysian and Qatari investors control land with planning consent for more than 33,000 residential units.

It said: “We expect the top 10 developers will change to reflect this foreign presence.”

CBRE said this diversity and alternative investment source will help to speed up the construction of new homes.

The £8bn Battersea Power Station residential development was among major projects to have recently received foreign investment, after Malaysian groups SP Setia and Sime Darby and Chinese firm Dalian Wanda formed a consortium for the project’s redevelopment.

More than 3,500 homes will be built on the site over the lifetime of the project.

CBRE expects more housing associations to take on the role of housebuilders, as housing grants and the need to subsidise the delivery of affordable housing are removed.

The report showed that the 15 largest housing associations, known as g15, accounted for a quarter of all new building in London and controlled more than 15,000 market units, either in planning stages or under construction.

Those just shows how much America was seen as stable ground during the recession. Now the UK is growing again London is streaking ahead. Paris is still in the duldrums though which isn't surprising considering their tax rates and everything else wrong with there parliament at the moment, not exactly enticing the mega rich to the country are they!!

I think it's more to do with the growing realization that there's less and less opportunity for return in the Chinese market (mostly due to the perception that those prices are not going to stay quite as high). The biggest change was the policies meant to get individuals to purchase one home, Beijing implemented to cool down the market. The unintended consequences were that money going out of the country.

Though, it isn't just Chinese buyers, but foreigners who, before 2010, would have been buying property in China.
Then again, I don't know much about who their clients are (that is, who they surveyed), so that may be playing into the data as well; individuals with very little Chinese properties in their portfolios - and little desire to add more due to perceptions of low appreciation - are a bit "self-selecting" in having low ratings of the market.

There is very little "premium" areas in China to sustain large asset values it would seem.

The UK's housing bubble burst at the end of 2009 which that graph perfectly illustrates.

Also American property values are still substantially lower than The UK and the rest of Europe which allows the asset to have significant capital appreciation long term.

It's always easier to doubel a £100k then a £1m.

Washington DC is booming at the moment actually. 13,000 new residents each year (half coming in with Master's degrees or other qualifications), new condos, new districts, redevelopments. The only reason why it's a surprise is because of the Height Limits. DC right now has 646,000 people. In 2010 it was barely about to pass 599,000. And the metro area now is 9,000,000 and growing 100,000 per year. That's 1,000,000 new residents per decade. Lots of real estate.

And yet that chart shows a spike in 2009 (quite possibly in the wake of Obama's election as President) and a marked decline in Washington's relative popularity with real estate investors ever since.

Strange. Maybe it's just that even more growth is taking place in other cities.

It's quite incredible to see Washington do so well in terms of real estate investment when unfortunately Birmingham comes nowhere near. :/

Not really. The Washington metro area has a much bigger population than Birmingham's. And Washington is the capital and political seat of power for the richest and most powerful nation on earth.

Anyway, neither of them are London so this is probably not the thread to be getting too deeply into this discussion!
