Flexible Office: The Next Frontier for Commercial Real Estate
How to tackle the shift from traditional to flexible office models in today’s market.
Pre-Covid trends are accelerating, and the office workspace industry is experiencing rapid change, predominately driven by quickly evolving occupier requirements.
