In our popular annual editorial series, Propmodo Metatrends, we explore how the pandemic has upended the real estate industry. As part of this conversation, we will be presenting a special webinar event where we will take a closer look at the impact on building ownership and asset management, specifically around the office asset class. While corporate occupiers and property managers have suffered some of the most obvious consequences of a prolonged work-from-home mandate, additional challenges and unknowns remain for owners.
For this webinar, Propmodo’s editors and writers will be joined by several guest speakers to dig deeper into the macroeconomic forces, sociocultural changes, and technological advancements that are reshaping the office market and how building owners and asset managers can organize their strategy around them. The problems heaped upon office building owners over the past year are big and include some of the real estate industry’s greatest challenges—and opportunities.
Will occupiers require less space and more flexible options long term or will work-from-home be less of a factor once vaccines become ubiquitous? Will rent-rolls bounce back and will we see increased demand for space as we work our way out of this recession? Will tenants demand shorter lease terms and better protections from future displacement? What will that mean for valuations? What health and wellness best practices will become a permanent part of the office environment and how will these investments affect budgets and marketability?
The pandemic-driven shutdowns have forced owners to better understand the vulnerability of their investments and the importance of contingency planning. The thoughtful adoption of new behaviors and technologies are more important now than ever before, but we have a lot to learn. Join us for a fast-paced conversation and some lively debate. Our experts won’t just explain the problems, we will explore the strategies and solutions that building owners can adopt to maximize their property value, achieve a speedy recovery and differentiate their building from the competition.
