  • Flex operators are increasingly managing space on behalf of landlords under management agreements
  • Real estate is asking itself ‘How do I curate this space and what’s the best way to go about it’
  • There is a huge change happening in how employers engage with their workforces and asking themselves ‘what is the point of the office,’ this will lead to significant amounts of testing and adapting space
