THOUGHT LEADERSHIP

We are not about finding boxes where people can work. We are about generating more value from fewer square feet and making tenants insiders instead of outsiders. Occupy Different. Please let us know how we can help!

We have long been in the habit of reading, listening for and actively searching out valuable ideas and new perspectives in the commercial real estate sector that we can incorporate into our business practice and share with our clients. With the traditional play book thrown out in the aftermath of the COVID pandemic, watching for new industry trends is increasingly important as tenants look at what Return To Work models and Workplace Strategies are best suited for their specific needs.

The following posts touch on industry trends and potential paths that today’s leaders, disruptors and innovators are taking.
