For landlords & developers who want a higher revenue per square foot

You don’t believe in risky investments. Neither do we.
Let’s work together to get to the right decision.

Trust us. We’ve been doing this since 2001.

It’s the right time to invest in the flex office and coworking industry

“Every available piece of data suggests that a critical mass of tenants are reacting to their offices remaining less than half-full by taking less square footage per employee in more modern, lavish space. As a result, more than 70% of U.S. office buildings, accounting for 30% of the nation’s inventory and over $1.1T in estimated value, risk becoming functionally obsolete.”

The outlook on the continued growth of the global coworking market is very positive and expected to go from where it is now, $16.1B, to beyond $30B by 2026 with a compounded annual growth rate of 17% according to Business Research.

The sample occupancy stack shows how Coworking and Flexible office feeds the Spec Suite occupancy, feeding larger spaces for small businesses and then regional offices.

Advantages to the commercial landlord:

Management Agreements with Industry Experts

Similar to traditional property management, these agreements allow the landlord to benefit from all the upside revenue while management runs the space.

Continued Redevelopment

Outdated office and industrial buildings will continue to be redeveloped and be particularly attractive to coworking operators.

Short-Term Leases

For small- to medium-sized tenants, the typical term of a lease is likely to trend shorter, as flexible coworking spaces become a viable alternative to traditional office spaces.

Not sure if the flex office industry is the right move for you? Consider these points:

Vacancy rate for commercial space is at an all-time high. Flex office and coworking may be your best bet, delivering above-market rents compared to traditional office or retail.
