Abu Dhabi: Sustainable Capital

Jones Lang LaSalle has recently released its latest Abu Dhabi City Profile which recognises that:

  • Abu Dhabi’s real estate markets remain under-supplied in most sectors with vacancies currently at very low levels. This situation will change shortly for the office market as more supply comes on stream. The residential market will generally remain under-supplied, particularly for lower to middle market segments while retail supply will remain more balanced relative to spending power;
  • Abu Dhabi has been impacted by the international economic slowdown over the last 18 months. This has resulted in a real estate market correction with suppressed demand, a significant adjustment to rental and pricing levels and delays of announced development projects;
  • The future prospects for the Abu Dhabi real estate market remain very strong, due to the combination of sovereign and private wealth, the government’s vision and its strategic investment initiatives. The key to unlocking this long-term success will be achieving greater transparency, improving the regulatory framework and the transition from the reliance on a short term speculative development model to a more stable investment horizon.
