WeWork’s growth is in large part due to building owners not foreseeing how dramatic of shift there was in the needs of tenants.
As a result, real estate developers are now coming up with various strategies to partake in the upside of the flexible office trend.
Some of the strategies include:
• Launching their own coworking/flexible space brand• Joint venturing with operators (management agreements)• Having some component of flexible office in their portfolio• Avoiding co-working tenants all together.
In this session we hear from various real estate development and management firms on their approach to leasing up space in today’s dynamic and flexible office market.
