“What we know as coworking or flexible workspace…we see representing about 1%, globally over $3 trillion commercial real estate market.”  

“Looking seven to eight years ahead, what we know today as flexible coworking, we see growing fivefold.”

“In terms of the lifecycle of the industry in North America, we think it’s probably slightly behind where what we see in Europe…in terms of the volume of space compared to the wider traditional real estate market. So if we’re talking about a five fold increase globally, in the US, we could easily be talking 7 to 8% in terms of multiples.”

“If we talk about utilization of space, when companies were just starting to think about getting employees back to the office, the objective was to have 100% attendance. We’re starting to see employers now understand employers 100% was never actually something that was achievable when you take into account holidays, sickness, people not being at the office with clients traveling. The best that was probably ever achieved was 65 to 70%.”

“36% of landlords are not only planning to have flexible workspace in their buildings by 2025, but also plan to create their own brand and create their own products”
