In the last 12 to 24 months, there has been a significant labor shortage in commercial real estate, much like many other industries. Commercial leaders are finding it difficult to attract the talent they need while also ensuring they retain their best people. In light of this, the topic of people development has become a high priority for the industry.

Coworking is nothing new. In fact, the first ever coworking space was built way back in 2005 but it took a while before really gaining traction. Today, coworking has been deemed a priority for anyone who owns or manages an office building - and it’s making its way to the suburbs. 

In this episode of The ChangeMakers in CRE, we chat to Sheree McIntyre, Founder & CEO of Coworking Counsel. Sheree has spent the last 20 ye...

It may be an intimidating evolution to some, but PropTech is here to stay - so much so that Edward Wagoner, CIO for Digital at JLL states that “If you don’t take this seriously, in 5 years we won't take you seriously as you're not going to be around.”

Adopting the right PropTech solutions can have incredible benefits for your business as the future becomes more digital for commercial real estate – yet many are put off by c...

The retail sector has been one of the hardest hit in commercial real estate in recent years. First, there was the rise of eCommerce as customers flocked to online stores. Then, when a global pandemic forced shops to close their doors, many started to believe the days of physical retail may be numbered. 

But Rebeca Guzman Vidal never bought into that narrative. Rebeca is the Group Head of Retail Strategy at Chelsfield, a leading inte...

Since the pandemic, there has been a high demand for improving the quality of all indoor environments, including commercial properties. People are more conscious of the health risks that poor air quality imposes, which has forced commercial landlords to be more proactive in optimizing their buildings. If landlords want to charge premium leases, attract and retain tenants, they can’t sit back and ignore the new demands for the indoo...

Great branding isn’t the first thing that springs to mind when you think of commercial real estate. For decades, the extent of a ‘brand’ would be a company name (typically a last name or multiple last names) and a bit of colour. But building a memorable brand not only helps you stand out from the (slightly outdated) crowd, it also has a tangible impact on your business.

What happens to older buildings that no longer serve the needs of their tenants? They sit vacant for a long time and become an underperforming asset in an owner’s portfolio. But these buildings also present opportunities to create a space for today’s tenant and customer needs without starting from scratch.

The customer experience has been a major talking point across all sectors of commercial real estate recently. As tenants look to move away from 20-year leases to shorter agreements, the onus is on landlords and owners to deliver a service that will keep tenants in their buildings.  

It’s a trend that has already become popular in the office sector, but Industrials REIT is bringing that focus to the industrial space and finding great...
