In this issue of Insights, we examine changing landscapes in commercial real estate. Our cover story on coworking highlights the variety of workplace environments available to occupiers in this evolving office niche, and explores the underlying strategies landlords and coworking operators are using to bring the shared workplace experience to their properties.
Our article on industrial development discusses the increasing complexity of these projects. We show how e-commerce has shifted much of the nation’s industrial demand to urban neighborhoods for faster last-mile delivery to consumers. Then, we touch on infill construction’s numerous challenges, from increased competition for sites, to the nuances of demolition and environmental remediation, and how those factors contribute to rising rental rates.
We also offer up recent Transwestern office relocations and a new technology tool as examples of Transwestern’s collaborative approach to client service. Our case studies demonstrate how subject-matter experts in offices across the country join forces to forge real estate solutions to client challenges.
Finally, our research consulting affiliate, Delta Associates, predicts how the major property types are likely to perform in the event of an economic downturn.
