Office trends: Flexibility and a shift to suburban markets

Jonny Rosenblatt, co-CEO, Spacemade

There was already a structural shift towards flexible office space, offering flexibility to tenants and a variety of amenities, Jonny Rosenblatt, co-CEO, Spacemade tells the Real Asset Day, but the health crisis has accelerated these trends.

‘Workers and employees want full flexibility over where they work, the times they work, how they work and how they collaborate with their team,’ says Rosenblatt.

He also sees an increased shift towards suburban markets: ‘We’ve just launched a space in a really strong London suburb, Queens Park, and we’ve seen an enormous uptake, bigger than any of our other spaces.’

Rosenblatt sees a trend of working closer to home: ‘People don’t want to be commuting into central London every day. They want to have that flexibility of where they can work’
