The 230-room InterContinental One Thousand Island Lake Resort, in Qiandaohu Lake, China, designed by WATG for the Wanxiang Group. WATG, headquartered in Hawaii, did 96% of its work outside the U.S. and Canada in 2011, much of it in China. “We are witnessing a surge in demand for luxury hotel brands and boutique offerings throughout Asia,” says Raj Chandnani, the firm’s Strategy Director.

High-end hotels in the U.S. have been having a good 2012 and can expect to do even better next year, with average daily room rates expected to be up 5.3% in 2013 compared to 4.7% this year and the 2.8% long-term average, according to PKF Hospitality Research. That bodes well for firms doing hotel design and construction.

On the retail side, the ULI Center for Capital Markets and Real Estate forecasts vacancy rates to begin to turn around this year, down to 12.5% in 2013. Retail rentals should be up 2.0% next year, says the ULI. +
