The Future of Work’s Impact on Real Estate | Nine Four Ventures

‘It’s not hard to see that the ecosystem of employment and work is changing rapidly, and will continue to do so. The rise of the gig economy (from Uber and AirBnb to freelance programming), job automation through advances in AI and robotics, and increasing demand for flexible work arrangements (remote work, distributed talent) are all emergent trends with massive impacts on the Future of Work, particularly in advanced industrial economies.’

Pay Attention: Co-Living Will Not Disappear into the Night | Michael Beckerman via CRETech

‘Given the vast opportunities unfolding within coliving, we will see the rise of a new real estate asset class for the first time in a very long time. Coliving is not a passing fad, but rather a trend with real staying power and massive room for growth.

‘The We Company and smart landlords are increasingly aware that real estate is just a platform—a blank slate that needs to be programmed. Forever, landlords would take on tenants based on whoever was willing to pay the most. But priorities have shifted. People wants to live and work in places with all of their favorite things.

The value a commercial tenant brings to a space is now as important as the price they’re willing to pay.’
