Real Estate’s Flexible Future

October 16, 2018 | 10:45 - 11:30

Real Estate’s Flexible Future

Co-working has emerged from being something that was strictly reserved for startups and entrepreneurs into a serious conversation topic for the entire corporate real estate industry. Global landlords took notice and are now proactively integrating enterprise-grade flexible workspace solutions into traditional office buildings. This session will go beyond the surface-level headlines of co-working to explain the larger underlying "trend lines" that are driving change in corporate real estate, and the implications these changes will have on the future of real estate and workplace strategy. Discussion will explore how landlords are using services, amenities, and technology to compete for anchor occupiers.  Discover how the evolving needs of today's talent will pave the way for the emergence of a new type of workplace, the "empathetic" office building. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Describe how landlords like Brookfield, Blackstone, and One World Trade Center are making massive bets on flexible workspace to serve enterprises beyond the traditional lease. 
  • Explain how workplace strategies will evolve to incorporate flexible workspace solutions to reduce cost while improving experience for a company's most important asset - their people.
  • Explore the implications of smart building technology on tenant experience and workplace strategies, and what the emergence of the empathetic office building means for the future of work.
