The current research project explores the role of urban planning regulations and the regulations of investments on the real estate market in attracting financial investments to Tokyo, a global city that plays an important role in the economy of Japan and the world. The approach to building and land-use regulations as a form of societal control had constrained the investor's capacity to choose the spatial location of its investment, as well as reducing the investor's degree of freedom to build and use the real estate asset the way it best served the investor's interests. The current research project attempts to reveal to what extent this approach is still the basis of local regulations, if and how regulations play a role in attracting investments by contemporary global real estate investors, since the profit-driven global real estate investor can find the most attractive investment property market in different local settings around the world (the study is concerned with where the investors choose to invest in property and not where they choose to locate their own office premises). Exploring the interaction between the financial market and the real estate market can also be instrumental in guiding and informing the responsiveness of city planners and administrators to the ever expanding needs of financing the development of a global city.
