WO/2015/026293 THE CREET MODEL||WO||26.02.2015|
||PCT/SG2014/000370||WU XIAOJUN, Allan||WU XIAOJUN, Allan|
Commercial energy defines the intensity of commercial activities in a city. Commercial Real Estate - Energy Theory (CREET) is a brand new theory to interpret the dynamics related to the aggregation, spillover and dilution of commercial energy in cities and the implications on commercial real estate. The CREET Model is created based on the theory to quantify the commercial energy level of each city through an index on a relative basis. The CREET Model comprises four major parts: • Commercial Activity Model • New Hierarchy Model of Cities • CREET Index Model •CREET Matrix The CREET Model is relevant to policy makers especially for their urban planning strategies to accommodate the future commercial activities through this quantified and structured methodology. The Model is also useful to investors and developers to enable their business decisions when it comes to the selection of cities for investment and asset allocation among different property sectors i.e. office, retail and hospitality etc.
