We had a wonderful chat session with Dr Boaz Boon, Director of VestAsia and Founder & Principal of Thred, Singapore. Dr Boon was also ex-Capitaland, where he led the research, innovation and training teams at the Group. Hear what Dr Boon says about Design Thinking, how it originated, how has it been adopted in industries, and how it can be applied to the real estate market, for example in shopping malls, and even in our daily lives !
We recently caught up wih Mr Alan Cheong, Senior Director of Research & Consultancy, Savills Singapore. Join us as we discuss about Singapore property. For private residential, where are home prices headed, does Alan agree with the market consensus of a huge oversupply, and why new launches tend to be more resilient than resale market? For offices, how are offices navigating the downturn, and what is Alan’s forecasting model telling us about when rents could hit the trough ? For retail, what are the softer F&B activities telling us about local retail scene, and why is budget air travels competing away demand for local shopping?
