Technology and new workplace cultures were reshaping the development of office space long before the coronavirus pandemic. But then remote working completely shook up the ways businesses are using – or not using – office space. In this discussion, we talked to experts about the outlook for office vacancies and how this might affect the larger business ecosystem, particularly in downtown. We talked about new amenities that are being designed, architecture trends, wellness within office development and more with real estate experts.
