We were honored to host the BDB’s Commercial Real Estate Professionals Round Table on Tuesday, October 11th at Flagler Waterview in West Palm Beach. Flagler Waterview is located at 1515 N Flagler Drive and presents tenants a one-of-a-kind opportunity to enjoy Class-A office space with stunning Intracoastal views, complimentary valet parking, a free tenant parking garage, 24/7 security and an on-site Walgreens pharmacy.

The topic was “Trends in the Market Place” and featured panelists Rex Kirby (Verdex Construction), Tammy O’Rourke (Glidden Spina), and Ignacio Reyes (Leo A Daly Architects). Cheri Pavlik (Leo A Daly Architects) served as the panel moderator. Overall, the panelists agreed that new office space is trending towards more common areas like communal kitchens and employee lounges, enabling the SF per person to reduce as more employees work in these┬ácollaborative and common spaces vs. traditional individual offices. Another noted item was the increase in demand to repurpose industrial warehouses in urban areas for professional office and retail users. Ignacio Reyes noted that the increase in technological capabilities will shift how employers and employees work, especially with the boost in telecommuting and public transportation like Uber, which could eventually affect space needed for parking as fewer workers will be using their personal vehicles.

We look forward to seeing how these innovative and modern trends influence new workspaces locally and across the world.
