We’re facing unprecedented challenges with tenant attraction, occupancy, and retention. To reestablish value for physical office spaces, CRE owners and developers are searching for ways to align their building strategy with today’s workforce. Office properties need to be in a location that offers real value to workers, which may mean converting buildings to new uses. Join us as our panel of experts discuss the future of office buildings, and address critical questions:

  • What are the new value drivers of commercial real estate office space?
  • How are companies handling changes affecting their office spaces? Amenitization, repurposing, knockdowns?
  • What office amenities are no longer optional?
  • What amenities contribute most to the employee experience?
  • Why is it important to leverage your workplace amenities and work environment to stay competitive?
