MISPLACED SCHADENFREUDE? IMPLICATIONS OF CHANGING FLEXIBLE WORKSPACE FOR CRE

The flexible office sector—and coworking, in particular—has been the darling of the office market since the last recession. Its meteoric 45% compound annual growth rate in U.S. gateway markets from 2010-2018 has increasingly driven new leasing activity.

It is tricky, however, to reconcile these statistics with recent media coverage on the sector; gloomy predictions have been on the rise. In light of this, it is worthwhile to re-examine some fundamental assumptions regarding the flexible space office sector.
