What’s happening in the commercial reale estate market? This is an overall glance of the most important news around the world.
Parents and coworking spaces. What’s with this combo?
The real estate market is innovating to attract more tenants into coworking spaces due to its exponential increase. London, which remains the global capital for coworking spaces, with more than 2.5 million sq.ft is bringing new trends and perks to differentiate from the competition.
For instance, smaller coworking spaces are offering child-friendly workspaces or onsite nurseries. Amenities that were once cherished like ping-pong tables, coffee bars and happy hours are no longer enough to attract new tenants. Workplaces are now aiming to bring in more young, entrepreneurial parents with perks that permit them to easily manage both parental and professional duties in the same place.
Nevertheless, coworking spaces must evaluate the balance between flexible desks offered vs. private offices and, the amount of space dedicated to community rooms vs. meeting rooms. That last thing these workplaces want is to decrease their revenues because of operational, regulatory and logistical challenges these new perks may bring.
