Converging needs are leading to more dialogue and transparency than ever before
Investors are wary about the economy. Companies are trying to attract people back to the office. Both camps are working toward their sustainability goals.
This all makes high-quality real estate – buildings that meet green specifications, or spaces that companies want to lease and where employees want to work – what everyone wants right now.
The convergence on quality is bringing about a major shift in the industry. The relationship between investors and occupiers has long been largely transactional, and at times even adversarial. But it’s increasingly becoming one of cooperation and partnership.
Beverley Kilbride, European COO of LaSalle Investment Management, and Andy Poppink, CEO of JLL EMEA Markets discuss the drivers behind this changing dynamic – and the state of real estate in general – on JLL’s website.
