Colliers. Flex Forward. The Flexible workspace Report 2020
The flexible workspace sector has not been immune to the effects of the pandemic but there are signs of positivity across EMEA, with some operators reporting solid performance and considering expansion opportunities. As enterprise occupiers evaluate their real estate decisions and adjust their strategies, we expect the flexible workspace sector to be at the forefront of many new solutions. Looking back at our predictions for the sector in January, the pandemic has accelerated many of these
forecasts. This report illustrates some of the strategies available to enterprise occupiers to manage the “new normal”. Asset owners across the region are increasingly interested in having exposure to the sector, not just for flexible workspace but also for the range of other services and amenities they can offer. This report evaluates different delivery mechanisms to integrate flexible workspace into assets and the implications on valuation. On the following pages we start with a deep dive into major markets across EMEA, analysing how the sector has performed over the last 18 months, before we guide you through occupier strategies, models and considerations for asset owners.
