Product description

This is a thorough exploration of the evolution of the commercial property investment and development markets from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day and will explain how the current investment scene emerged. It will be written to fill an important gap in the literature on the property market, to replace Oliver Mariott's widely acclaimed - but w very out of date (and considered too anecdotal), The Property Boom. The author draws on private business records of institutional investors, major retailers, chartered surveyors and property developers and uses extensive case study material to focus on: factors influencing the growth of institution investment in property; evolution of commercial and industrial property markets; influence of the property investment market on the property development industry and the wider ecomy; factors influencing the physical development of office and shopping centres; the political ecomy of the property development industry. The book will also contain a statistical section which outlines the assembly of long-run historical series covering most aspects of the property investment market; a glossary of acronyms, abbreviations and technical terms; and a full further reading section.
