Future Gazing Series: Space filling: New thinking


Two hours CPD, one big discussion!

Changing trends in the work force and technologies are repurposing the way we want to work – by creating environments that promote a more collaborative, supportive approach, along with benefits of networking, well-being and a community feel, it’s no wonder flexible working spaces are an attractive option to a host of SMEs. And with this market shift, landlords can derive value out of previously disused or empty spaces and we are seeing convergence through new mixed use formats like never before. 

This session will discuss how real estate developers, investors and occupiers are responding to these evolving changes; the opportunities they present plus the critical components and new partnerships needed to deliver and ensure the financial success of mixed use formats.

Our panel will examine how real estate landlords can adapt leases to the office sharing model, the investment needed into creating a workable co-working space, particularly as competition grows; plus, how the retail offer can complement to create community and place.

  • How are changes in work and technology reshaping workplaces, homes and cities?
  • The opportunities for developers to capitalise on the added value that flexible working spaces bring to the tenure mix
  • How landlords, tenants and shared space end users can legally protect themselves
  • Lease structures for co-working spaces – including sub-occupancy models
  • Joint ventures – will we see more JV’s between landlord and co-working operators
  • The compatibility of the building to meet co-working space requirements including fit out requirements
