Beyond simple transactions

The lines between professional and private spheres are becoming increasingly blurred, and greater flexibility is emerging as a key factor in value creation. It is clear that buildings should maximise occupiers’ performance and well-being. As such, tailoring and organising a building to how users will best work and thrive—primarily through mixed-use building ecosystems—has become an important consideration for real estate portfolio strategies.

Human-centric design and flexibility

Anticipation of market trends is a critical part of developing a real estate portfolio strategy. The value of your assets is ultimately tied to your ability to ensure they accurately match your occupiers’ way-of-life.

Investors in real estate need to understand the constant evolution in how we work and how we use the spaces around us. New working methods are freeing employees from the conventional, individually-allocated desk in favour of the most suitable spaces for precise moments or projects. For example, “flexible office” spaces favour employees’ various activities throughout the day, from individual work to team meetings and relaxation. Buildings are tailored to make employees feel comfortable and embody the company’s full scope of values. These mixed, user-friendly spaces help attract the best talent by balancing personal and professional life through à la carte services like gyms, dry cleaning, massage, childcare and more.
