Shanghai has been vigorously promoting the development of life science industry, and has been actively alluring enterprises in the field to settle and set up presence in the city. Considering the strict requirements on R&D, manufacturing and office space, demand on qualified life science business parks (“life science BPs”) has been relatively robust in recent years. Mature projects with EIA are generally fully occupied with strong rental growth.

Underpinned by the brilliant outlook of life science industry, investors’ sentiment toward life science BPs remains strong. The high clusters of industry leaders, R&D institutions, universities, and talents are also reasons behind the high popularity of Zhangjiang’s life science BP market. In recent years, Zhangjiang’s life science BP market has recorded a fair amount of en-bloc transactions, reflecting the continuous investment preference. In addition, as Zhangjiang Science City gradually expands its scale, emerging life science BP submarkets in the surrounding, such as Medical Valley and Medical Equipment Manufacturing Base, are expected to receive spill-over demand from the Zhangjiang Pharma Valley.

Since last year, financially-stressed domestic real estate enterprises are constantly divesting assets to retrieve funds. Between June to July 2022, CITIC Group took over four projects including Shenzhen Nanshan Dongjiaotou Project from a domestic real estate enterprise. AMCs, such as Huarong, Cinda and Great Wall, are also setting up rescue funds or platforms to actively participate in resolving real estate projects that are in risk. Presently, the residential real estate is facing headwinds, and is on a downward momentum. On the contrast, investors are keeping eyes on debt-stressed enterprises, targeting those who own quality projects in key cities and striving to seize opportunities in obtaining high-quality projects with ideal prices.
