Valuation of Flexible Workspace

With flexible workspace now considered a vital component of the workplace ecosystem, how should landlords successfully value a flexible workspace proposition?

Realising the Value of Flex

Flexible workspace has firmly cemented its place in the real estate market in recent years with record levels of take-up by flexible workspace operators.

COVID-19 has forced many companies and their employees to reconsider how they want to work in the future, with flexible workspace now considered an even more vital component of the workplace ecosystem.

Cushman & Wakefield is advising landlords how to successfully value a flexible workspace proposition.
