Quarterly Yangon Real Estate Review now released

Our first in-depth review of the Yangon real estate market is now available to purchase.

The Q2 Yangon Real Estate Review contains more than 175 pages of information, covering residential and commercial market analysis, developer profiles, data, legislation, maps, district-by-district profiles, and details of over 50 in-progress or prospective projects in Yangon.

Researched during the first half of 2014 by Frontier's local and international staff in Yangon, the report is an essential resource for companies involved in the real estate and construction sector, including developers, investors, banks, contractors, architects, project managers and more.

Key findings from the report include:

  • Yangon is one of the fastest-changing cities in south-east Asia, and has the potential to turn into a major regional commercial hub as Myanmar reintegrates into the global economy after a long period of isolation.
  • The city's real estate market is undergoing a rapid transition across all sectors, with a flurry of new residential, commercial, hotel and retail projects under construction or in the pipeline
  • Public sector-owned land continues to be put out to tender on Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) terms, with further sites expected to come available in 2014 and 2015
  • Residential prices have multiplied dramatically over the past five years, but a combination of new tax legislation and concerns about overheating mean that prices in many areas have flattened off in 2014
  • Demand for office space continues to far outstrip supply, as a wave of foreign companies enter the market and local private-sector groups expand. Despite the large amount of new space under construction, we expect total Grade A space in multi-tenant buildings to remain below one million sq m by 2017, which is far below other regional capitals.
  • Yangon's unique architectural heritage makes it a particularly exciting property market, with a number of heritage buildings in the Downtown area of the city set to be renovated in the coming years
  • The legislative environment remains a key factor for the market, with tax and investment laws in flux and several key new acts expected to be enacted in 2014 and 2015
  • Key risks to the market include rising construction costs, legislative changes, and the progress of Myanmar's broader political and economic transition over the coming 18 months
