Join us in August for our Workplace of the Future 2018 event to deep dive into Houston's mega office market! We'll be talking about investment activity, red-hot developments, and how co-working is penetrating and disrupting the office landscape.
Over a fifth of Houston office space sits empty - which is the highest rate among the nation's 20 biggest cities. On top of that, Colliers recorded a negative absorption of 1.5 million SF of office space in Houston. These are hard facts to face, but the good news is, Houston will be hitting an upswing - it's just a matter of time. Investors sure are recognizing the inherent value. Edward Griffin, President of Griffin Partners, joins us to talk about the 3-building office complex acquired Uptown.
With competition high, co-working, and creative spaces on the rise, landlords have to be more diligent - and 2017 showed just that. It was a tenant year: low rent, freebies, and high IT allowances put the ball in the tenant's court. But, with the office market potential looking up, how can we WIN BIG in 2018? We're honored to welcome Skanska's Matthew Damborsky who will be talking tech, modernization, and sustainable workplaces.
We'll also be diving deep into disruptive tech and design trends, market forecasts, the co-working boom, and new developments revolutionizing office space across Houston.
Join us at another top-notch Bisnow event. As always, we'll have breakfast, fresh coffee, and plenty of time for networking. You won't want to miss this!
