The number of apartments sold was reduced to 6,051 units, down 47% qoq and 29% yoy. This decline is mainly due to limited supply options due to the absence of a new offering. Medium-class flats accounted for 67% of total units sold in the quarter.
Average asking price of apartments reached $1,595 / sqm, up 6% q / q and 13% y / y. Offers increased by 7.9% in the high-end segment thanks to high-quality projects.

The retail market only welcomed two new projects in the first quarter of 2017: Sense Market 23-9 in District 1 and CBD Home Premium in District 2. Rental rates were recorded stable in most areas and type of business.
Grade A office space has no new supply this quarter. Grade A vacancy declined by 1.7 percentage points quarter-on-quarter and 1.9 percentage points over the same period.
