Govt Urged to Focus On Middle Level Housing Markets
Wagane Diouf Chief Executive Officer of pan African Real Estate Development Company Urbanis Africasays when it comes to providing housing, governments need to look at the middle market.
“When we talk about low income housing we try to build houses for Sh300,000. No one spends time building between Sh1.5 million and Sh2 million because there is demand in that market. We are always trying to solve the problem for the richest and the poorest, and not the middle” he said.
Speaking at the African Real Estate and Housing Finance Academy conference on Friday, Diouf added that African governments should borrow a leaf from the Telco business model that successfully penetrated the African market by appealing to the informal sector. Read More
Incoporate waste management systems in designs – Ano
Kweku Anno, a local entrepreneur, has challenged Ghanaian architects and real estate developers to consider developing new efficient ways of controlling sanitation and waste in their designs.
Mr Anno who is the inventor of the Biofil Digester, a unique waste treatment system, said that, current trends in the building industry call for new thinking when it comes to the design of buildings and communities.
He said while issues such as limited land, soil conditions and poor drainage systems affect design of housing developments in the country, sanitation and waste management must be equally given serious consideration in the current situation.
“Our population is increasing, especially in the urban areas, and even those who practice proper sanitation are not spared the effects of the generally poor waste management in the country,” Mr Anno said in a presentation to architects and real estate developers.
He said more than 2,000 Biofil Digesters had been installed in homes, office blocks and other commercial facilities in Ghana, Mali, South Africa and Liberia.
Also installed are Digesters to manage existing septic systems, which have problems such as overflowing.
The trickling filters are designed to treat the water and sludge generated in the septic tank and completely eliminates the need for contents to be pumped out by waste trucks.
Apart from toilet waste management, Mr Anno said the company had also been treating organic waste from the kitchen and household by dumping these materials into a customized Biofil Digester.
He said the application of the technology had cut by half the amount of rubbish generated in these households, while making it easier for waste to be sorted and recycled. Read More

Kenya: UAP Sets sight on Real Estate and REITs
UAP Insurance Group has announced plans to offer a new product for Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), which will be developed by an asset management firm it’s set to launch in quarter two 2012. The group comprises eight firms across the East Africa region with interests in insurance, property development and financial services and hopes to be among pioneers of REITs products in the country.
The Capital Markets Authority (CMA) is however yet to gazette the regulatory framework for operation of REITs although it had earlier indicated they would be ready by end of December 2011. “We are planning to launch the new asset management subsidiary and some products like REITs may take time to be operationalised but we just want to prepare and be ready to offer them when they are approved,” said UAP Group managing director James Muguiyi.
REITs enable splitting up ownership of single properties into units that can then be freely traded and pay out dividends to shareholders. An investor shares in a property or a mortgage that can be exchanged in a securities market like a stock. Presently, licensing and operation of REITs locally is inhibited by absence of regulations for the property investment vehicles.
The 2011 Finance Bill proposed tax incentives on this investment product to boost housing supply in urban areas and stem the cumulative housing deficit estimated to be well over two million units. Besides a REITs product, UAP Group is also developing three commercial properties across East Africa at an estimated cost of Sh7.2 billion.
In Kenya, it will build a 30-storey building in Nairobi dubbed UAP Tower, set for complete in June 2013; in Uganda, ongoing construction of the Nakawa Business Park comprising four towers of eight storeys each will be completed in October this year; while in Juba, South Sudan, the firm through a subsidiary property company is building the Equitoria Tower, a 12-storey building set for completion by August 2012. “We have also started a land bank plan to secure land for our future property developments and we are looking for strategic areas which generate much interest in the market,” said Muguiyi.

Chinese firms are looking to regain their growth momentum in Africa - by Bao Chang (China Daily)
BEIJING - The rising value of new contracts signed by Chinese companies in Africa is aiding therecovery of
Chinese offshore construction contractors. Many suffered large losses in the politicalturbulence that
affected North Africa and the Middle East last year.
Africa has long been a major overseas destination for Chinese construction contractors. That has been
reflected in increases of more than 30 percent every year since 2006 in both the value ofcontracts
and revenues of Chinese companies operating on the continent.
The uncertain geopolitical scenarios in North Africa and the Middle East at the beginning of 2011 resulted in business stagnating for many Chinese enterprises in those regions.
According to the China International Contractors Association, the value of newly signed contracts in
Africa in the first half of 2011 declined 22 percent year-on-year to $15.28 billion.
However, some Chinese construction companies have reported positive performances in those African markets that experienced political turbulence, but are still offering new opportunities.
“We witnessed annual business growth of between 10 and 20 percent in the African market in 2011, although some contracts in North Africa were postponed because of political instability in the first half of last year,” said Wang Xiaoguang, director-general at the overseas department of China Communications Construction Co Ltd, on Tuesday. Wang added that the company will maintain its growth momentum in Africa this year.
As one of the largest State owned infrastructure enterprises by revenue, China Communications Construction has undertaken more than 150 projects in 25 African countries since it first entered the market more than 30 years ago. Wang said the next plan is to expand the scale of business in theregion.
“The move by Chinese construction contractors to develop in their established markets such as Africa will not stop in the coming years. And reconstruction efforts in the wake of civil unrest will definitely provide Chinese companies with more business opportunities,” said Zhang Xiang, a spokeswoman for the contractors association.
“This year, the businesses of Chinese contractors in Africa will grow rapidly, with transportation and real estate projects continuing to be the market high points,” Zhang added.
The value of contracts signed in the African markets reached $45.77 billion in 2011, a year-on-year increase of 19 percent, fueled by the booming markets in Angola and Algeria, according to the association’s data.
CITIC Construction Co Ltd, which focuses on the Angolan and Algerian markets, registered revenue growth of between 5 and 10 percent in Africa last year.
Ma Chuanfu, the vice-president, said the company will continue to expand its business in real-estate and agriculture in those countries this year.
According to the contractors association, Chinese companies signed construction contracts worth $4.4 billion in Angola and $6.4 billion in Algeria last year. The Angolan market accounted for 10 percent of the total value of the contracts, while business in Algeria generated 14 percent.
Ma added that CITIC Construction will also promote the safety awareness of employees and alleviate risks when developing in unstable markets in the future.
The contractors association said it will take some time for Chinese companies’ business to fully recover in markets that experienced political turmoil last year. Risk control has now become the most important factor for companies eager to submit successful bids in these markets.
“Meanwhile, Chinese companies will accelerate the localization of both operations and human resources in Africa in a move to promote management efficiency and reduce risks,” said Zhang.
West-African Railways Rebuilt with $25Billion from Iron-Ore Boom – Story by Jana Marais
An iron-ore boom in West Africa, which may have deposits to rival Australia’s ore-rich Pilbara region, is motivating African Minerals, as well as miners Rio Tinto Plc (RIO) and ArcelorMittal, to spend $25 billion on 3,170 miles of new and rebuilt railways and 11 new ports in West Africa, according to JPMorgan Chase & Co.
African Minerals is already benefiting, with its stock gaining 25 percent this year. More is to come: Nations including Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Republic of Congo may supply 250 million tons, or 9 percent of global iron ore output, by 2020, according to mining researcher Raw Materials Group.
“The standout development is African Minerals,” according to Matt Fernley, an analyst at GMP Securities Ltd. in London who said the stock is his “top pick in the sector. If you’re in Africa in iron ore, you want a world-class deposit and you want control over your own infrastructure. They have both.”
Most of Sierra Leone’s transport network was destroyed or left to ruin during the civil war that ended in 2002. Only 8.9 percent of the West African nation’s 11,555 kilometers (7,200 miles) of roads is paved and the main port, Pepel, has an annual capacity of just 16 million tons.
Sierra Leone was ranked third-lowest of 155 countries on the World Bank’s 2010 logistics performance index, a measure of the quality, cost and efficiency of transport networks. …Read the Full Story at Bloomberg

Egypt : Activity Returning To Cairo’s real Estate Market But Challenges Remain (by BI-ME)
Jones Lang LaSalle, the world’s leading real estate investment and advisory firm, has today published its latest Cairo Real Estate Overview, which suggests that, following the country’s difficulties in 2011, the future looks more positive.
It believes that there is evidence of more clarity and increased activity, with confidence returning twelve months after Egypt’s revolution.
Indicators that 2012 should see a potential improvement in the Cairo real estate market include:
• Current and active demand for between 5,000 and 15,000 sq m of office space from a number of international FMCG and petrochemical occupiers.
• Retailers continue to open new stores with recent examples including American Eagle and Pinkberry opening their first stores in Egypt at CityStars and LC Waikiki (a Turkish retailer) opening their first store in December 2011 at Sun City Mall in Heliopolis.
• Some Real estate projects will continue towards completion in 2012. Cairo Festival City will deliver its first office phase in mid-2012 and Damac is looking to open its retail and office project opposite Dandy Mall before the end of the year. The market is witnessing a revival of other mixed use projects driven mainly by UAE and Qatari developers.
Ayman Sami concluded: “For the longer term investor, Egypt will always be an attractive market with considerable potential. There is opportunity in the many challenges that need to be addressed, such as more affordable housing, but the sector needs stability to be able to do this.”- Read More for Sector Summaries
China: How Real Estate, Reserve Requirements, Yuan and U.S. Treasuries Interact
Real estate in China, which accounts for 13% of the Chinese economy, has been bottoming out since the beginning of 2012. China has been actively manipulating the bank reserve requirements and deposit rates for many years. What China is doing is not to be underestimated and I’ll prove this by giving some numbers.
As said earlier, real estate accounts for 13% of total Chinese GDP ($US 6 trillion) and equals $US 780 billion. So the People’s Bank of China needs to have firepower in the order of several billions to make a difference. And this firepower is actively being used by China.
Since 2010, China has been increasing reserve ratios almost every month for banks. To the point where it increased reserve ratios from 7% up to 21.5% in July 2011. Technically, China even increased reserve ratios to 22.8% in September 2011 because of the inclusion of margin deposits in the reserve requirement. So China has been saving a lot of money in its banks….Read More
Real Estate Boom Turns To Gloom in Greece, Romania, Bulgaria
The ongoing economic slump, rising unemployment rates, diminishing purchasing power, newly imposed property taxes and banks’ conservative or no-loan policies have taken a massive bite out of the Southern Europe property market, which has screeched to a virtual standstill.
“It is a take it or leave it game,” said Emil Biclea, who has been trying to sell his flat in Bucharest for two years. He started out asking about 50,000 euros and never got an offer over 40,000. “The buyers take advantage of the unfavourable economic situation and ask for a much lower price. I, in return, don’t want to sell it for nothing because I invested in it. Therefore, all I can do is wait for better times to get the most of this sale”, he told SETimes. …Read More

The value of new building plans approved within Nairobi in the fourth quarter of last year declined by 11 per cent compared to the third quarter, showing initial signs of a slowing growth in the property market and a shift to the city outskirts.
Building plans worth Sh54.8 billion were approved in the last three months of 2011, which was 11 per cent lower than the third quarter but ahead of the Sh40 billion in the corresponding quarter in 2010.
The suspected slow-down in the property market is also attributed to rising costs of borrowing.
