Q: Sticking with office leasing, are you still seeing ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, such as tenants looking for less space than pre-pandemic or seeking different sorts of amenities and/or floor plans?
A: Yes, we are. Many tenants still have not made a physical return to the office. In my clients’ buildings, we’ve seen actual physical occupancy at approximately 35% of tenants working in the office on a daily basis at the beginning of the first quarter of 2022. My firm is a good example. We recently signed a lease to move into a new and smaller space that better fits our needs, even though we are in growth mode. With not everyone in the office daily, we plan to have shared office space and other programming. We are also planning collaborative work areas. People have become used to the conveniences of working from home. Creating a cool and comfortable work environment is even more important than before.
