Jones Lang LaSalle and Rio Negócios promote investor event in London
Jones Lang LaSalle, the international real estate consultancy, and Rio Negócios, the investment promotion agency of the city of Rio de Janeiro, have joined forces to bring potential investors some of the key business opportunities in the Brazilian real estate market, and in particular in Rio de Janeiro. The event will take place July 25th at the London offices of Jones Lang LaSalle.
During the event Fábio Maceira, CEO of Jones Lang LaSalle Brazil, and leasing directors André Costa and Mônica Barg, will provide investors with an overview of the Brazilian real estate market. Andrew Hume, who heads the urban renewal area of Jones Lang LaSalle in London, will share his experiences in advising various London Olympic agencies about projects related to the 2012 Games. And Marcelo Haddad, Executive Director of Rio Negócios, will describe the outlook for the real estate market in Rio de Janeiro, highlighting the great number of business opportunities the city offers to new investors.
“Rio de Janeiro is going through a unique moment, with major transformations that are repositioning the city in an exceptional manner as one of the most important investment destinations in the world,” Maceira said. “The alignment between the three levels of government and city’s strategies for prospecting new business, coupled with the strength of the oil and gas sector and the major sporting events that Rio will host, have all helped create an extremely favorable situation to leverage new business in various sectors. This is particularly true of the real estate sector.”
“Location is a key element in any corporate business plan. A city that is undergoing an unprecedented transformation like Rio, and which additionally has attracted a large volume of new businesses and investment, has an extremely favorable scenario for new real estate developments. Porto Maravilha project, for example, will provide a new supply of prime commercial spaces in the city center, relieving the tremendous pressure for new quality spaces. The new transport system, including express high-capacity bus lanes is integrating the city and making remote areas become more attractive. And the laws to encourage new hotel developments introduced in 2010 boosted the construction of 11,000 new hotel rooms that will be ready by 2015. I believe that Rio is in an exciting moment for the real estate sector”, says Marcelo Haddad, Executive Director of Rio Negócios.
