Zakai: Real Estate Must Increase User Focus
2021 trends to include enhanced flexibility, shorter leases
Dan Zakai, CEO of MindSpace, has published a provocative post via the influential Real Estate Council within business media group Forbes. Extrapolating present trends, Zakai makes a strong case for shorter leases and sublets. But he also argues that real estate businesses who want to succeed in a post-COVID economy will need to provide their clients with "things they can't get at home, such as spaces to socialize and collaborate, lounges and cafes."
We'd add that delivering exciting, flexible workspaces, 2021-style, will involve making buildings smarter... and that ZiggyTec's metering and environmental monitoring should be one of the foundations of such efforts.
