(overbuilding????)

This is why 10 Chinese cities were among the top 20 listed in the CBRE Group's report, which focused on malls with floor area of at least 20,000 square meters. Those 10 cities built 2.5 million square meters of new mall space, accounting for 44 percent of the world's total.

It was quickly proven correct. Chengdu's vacancy rate for office buildings reached 40.8 percent in the first quarter of this year, up from 35.9 percent at the end of last year, reported Jones Lang LaSalle, a real estate service and investment company based in Chicago.

Oversupply also caused monthly rents to fall to 97.1 yuan per square meter, down 3.2 percent from the first quarter of last year.

Retail sales fall as rents are reduced

Total retail sales in July and August slumped 4.2 percent from a year earlier while watch and jewelry sales tumbled 7 percent in the same period, a report from CBRE Hong Kong said.

The weak retail sentiment is expected to continue, hitting prime areas such as Causeway Bay the hardest, according to CBRE.

CBRE said many tenants in core shopping districts have seen their rents reduced when extending their leases, but some businesses have chosen to close.

Meanwhile, another report by Credit Suisse said store rents have fallen at least 30 percent since January and they are unlikely to rebound this year.

But CBRE said medium-end retailers who rely on locals, not mainlanders, will provide support for the rental market.

Several of these mid-range retailers, such as fitness clubs and sports brands, are also expanding their logistics networks.

However this meant warehouse occupancy and rents rose in the third quarter.

Meanwhile, overall office vacancies fell to 3.2 percent from 3.6 percent in the third quarter.

In Central, office vacancies fell to 1 percent from 1.7 percent.

Industrial Properties

The development of logistics properties in China faces obvious constraints despite the central government's vow to speed up construction.

By the end of June, the total area of modern warehouses for nine major logistics operators on the mainland was just 20 million square metres, compared with 370 million square metres in the United States, data from property consultants CBRE shows.
