Change is Inevitable, Growth is Optional

Commercial real estate is changing. We’ve only just begun to witness the immense transformation that is coming at the helm of mass digitization, globalization, and an increasingly mobile workforce. How, when, and where we work is evolving. Business cycles are shorter. Innovation is at a premium. Space utilization and workplace strategy are in a constant state of flux. Talent has new demands to support work/life integration, and employers are being challenged to identify talent in specific geographies. All in all, CRE cannot sustain itself by working off the traditional brokerage model.

Thus, since 2010, flex office, co-working spaces, and PropTech have emerged as integral components to the 21st century CRE market, and it will undoubtedly continue to evolve in the wake of COVID-19. In the past few years alone, new products, services, and offerings have materialized, solidifying the intersection between our work environments with technology, hospitality, efficiency, and collaboration. The industry professionals that make up Avison Young’s FOS team understand the dynamics of this ever-evolving flexible workspace sector, and they will ensure you’re provided with the knowledge you need to make informed, forward-thinking decisions.
