    China has emerged as a major player in American real estate, so it’s fitting that The Real Deal‘s U.S. Real Estate Showcase & Forum in Shanghai was the largest U.S.-focused real estate event ever held in the country. The industry’s leading developers, brokers, and foreign investment experts gathered to mingle, educate and learn from their Chinese counterparts, in an event that brought in around 4,500 attendees.

    Held at the Jing An Shangri-La in Shanghai’s premier business district, the forum, which ran from Sept. 10-12, brought in New York developers such as Eliot Spitzer, Steve Witkoff, Xinyuan Real Estate’s John Liang, the Naftali Group’s Miki Naftali, the Sapir Organization’s Alex Sapir and Rotem Rosen, and many others. They were joined by their counterparts from Miami, such as Stephen Owens of Swire Properties, and Los Angeles, where Greenland USA chief Ifei Chang is building a $1 billion project. [more]

    “The scale of wealth in this building is just unheard of,” appraiser Jonathan Miller told the New York Times of Gary Barnett’s rising One57 condominium tower.

Further, nine of 16 full-floor apartments have sold, and all the buyers are billionaires, according to the Extell Development president, and at least a few of them are “significant Forbes billionaires.”

    “Despite all the problems economically, you are seeing these people invest in real estate unlike in any period that has ever happened,” Miller said. [more]
