Better Spaces Leads the Way in Tenant Engagement Amidst a Rapidly Changing Commercial Real Estate Landscape
In a bustling hall in downtown Manhattan, Ms. Awosogba discussed the future of the workplace with prominent leaders in the commercial real estate industry, including David Falk from Newmark Knight Frank and Steve Durels from SL Green. The panel, titled “Development and Leasing: Keeping the City Market Strong,” touched on the major changes affecting the Commercial Real Estate industry today.
“Tenants today have more options than ever in terms of where they work,” says Ms. Awosogba. “From newer developments and co-working spaces to the increase in popularity of working remotely, traditional offices need to innovate in order to retain and attract tenants.”
She adds, “Better Spaces is pioneering a platform that activates community within existing office spaces and uses data to help property owners attract the tenants they want and retain the tenants they have.”
In addition to discussing current pain points, the panel focused on emerging trends in pre-built spaces and tenant customization, as well as predictions of what the workplace could look like 50 years from now.
Ms. Awosogba reflects, “The panelists each had a different perspective of what the future of leasing and development will look like, but they all agreed that data and machine learning will play a crucial part in understanding the tenant community.”
