Much has been written about the tremendous growth of some Asia Pacific cities over the last few decades. The knock on effect on real estate is often visualized by the famous pictures of the transformation of the Pudong district in Shanghai, where low-rise factories made place for a futuristic office district in the space of two decades. Looking ahead, which cities will see the greatest growth and what specific factors will drive or inhibit growth? More importantly, what does this mean for corporate occupiers looking to expand their footprint across Asia Pacific?
JLL’s Offices 2020 session at CoreNet will facilitate a deep dive into some of these questions. The Offices 2020 campaign paints a big-picture outlook for six major cities in Asia Pacific, tackling fundamental issues (identified by our clients themselves) that will shape the future of offices in the next decade. It examines, for example, what will drive growth, where tomorrow’s office hotspots will be and how sustainability will continue to climb the real estate and corporate agenda.
Essentially, Offices 2020 is about helping landlords and occupiers prepare for change by identifying key issues and starting the conversation now to outperform in the future.
