Global real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield will present its proprietary report on co-living and its impact on the real estate investment market in Poland at a conference to be held in Warsaw’s Elektrownia Powiśle on 3 March 2020. During the event, dedicated mainly to developers, investors, banking institutions, and media, real estate experts will talk about the sharing economy, alternative real estate financing, and taxation in co-living investment in Poland.
The report centres on co-living where residents share living space and a set of interests and values in line with their financial capabilities. Co-living, which has already gained traction in the United States and Western Europe, is just beginning to emerge in Poland, thereby offering a huge growth potential.
“Demographic and cultural shifts, new technologies, the growing consumer environmental awareness, and financial motives have driven interest in co-living in Poland. This form of housing offers such advantages as flexibility, mobility, and freedom. Important also are the opportunity to build a mini-community, the feeling of being part of it, and lack of loneliness. Regardless of their respective target groups, co-living spaces have one feature in common: instead of freehold they offer leases of minimum residential space with ample shared spaces, amenities and other services,” says Małgorzata Dziubińska, Associate Director, Consulting & Research, Cushman & Wakefield.
The report touches upon diverse age groups of occupiers, including senior housing, student housing and co-living for young professionals. Meeting such a variety of client expectations resulting from generational differences poses a major challenge for the real estate market. Experts will address issues related, among other things, to co-living investment and financing, and growth prospects for this real estate sector in Poland.
The report will be presented by Małgorzata Dziubińska and Katarzyna Lipka-Nawrocka, Consulting & Research, Cushman & Wakefield. A panel on alternative real estate investments will be chaired by Mira Kantor-Pikus, Partner, Capital Markets Group, Cushman & Wakefield.
The official partners for the report and the event are ORPEA Polska, Vonder, and Golub GetHouse.
The conference will held in the Chillout Zone, the White Star Office, Elektrownia Powiśle, Warsaw, on 3 march 2020, 9am–1pm.
