About the Book

This unique forcast of the shape of the property market of the future includes 22 individual research contributions by leading private practice, institutional and academic research departments and by other expert commentators.

All the major components of the property mix - retail, commercial, industrial, residential and leisure - are considered in detail. Leading professionals also give their views on the investment strategies of the future, funding options, public sector involvement, property management and agency practice.

Although this research concentrates on London and the South East of England the trends it reveals and the options it suggests are relevant to all major conurbations. There are important lessons here for every property professional, wherever based.

This book was first published in 1986.
