ALM's Real Estate Forum Readers See China, India as Markets of the Coming Decade, as Magazine Celebrates 60th Anniversary.

NEW YORK -- Real Estate Forum(R) magazine's September issue, out today, celebrates 60 years of industry-leading reporting on commercial real estate with articles that examine highlights of the past six decades, and the results of a reader survey that looks to the industry's future. Responding readers overwhelming agree that China will be the hot commercial real estate market of the coming decade, followed by India. They also predict that mixed use development and senior housing will be the hottest property sectors, and that healthcare-related industries will produce the greatest demand for space in the next ten years, followed by professional services. Real Estate Forum is published by ALM's Real Estate Media Division.

Other survey highlights include the following:

--Reader/respondents believe that the Resolution Trust Corporation sell-off, the creation of the interstate highway system and the rise of real estate investment trusts were the most important events influencing commercial real estate over the past 60 years.

--The expansion of global markets for commercial real estate securities and the movement toward flexible, energy-efficient buildings will be the factors having the most influence on commercial real estate markets in the future.

Articles in the September 60th anniversary issue include a look at the pioneering deals in the real estate industry over the past six decades, profiles of the next generation of business leaders who will be moving to the C-suite and a graphical spotlight on transactions that have shaped the industry over the course of the magazine's existence.

"Real Estate Forum's growth has paralleled the rise of the industry we chronicle. Since our first issue in 1946, we've tracked the rise and fall of markets, companies and individuals across every aspect of commercial real estate," said Michael Desiato, group publisher and editorial director for the Real Estate Media Division. "Today, with the expansion of our related magazines and our ability to deliver information to our readers electronically and on the Web, we're entering a new, and even more exciting, period in our publication's history."

A reception in honor of the magazine's 60th anniversary will take place on October 10 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City, following the conclusion of the RealShare National Investor Forum.
