AES President, Sunny Ghataurah, joins a panel of speakers discussing the topic of:
RAISING THE ROOF: REPOSITIONING VACANT SPACE AND CREATING ACCESSIBLE, ATTRACTIVE AMENITIES
Conversations around key assets and neighbourhoods regarding revitalization and repositioning space are paramount in asset management discourse as of late. What underlying forces are re-shaping older assets and creating creative leasing opportunities? This panel will showcase practices in fostering growth and providing new life to established communities and assets. It has been noted that in order to revitalize older properties, improve lease rates, tenant satisfaction and overall wellness, owners and managers need to regionalize, repurpose or restructure. Looking towards amenities, it’s no doubt that offering an array of different amenities can separate one building from another in a competitive market. Whether it be close proximity to transit, or full service cafeterias and fitness centers, amenities can boost the perceived value for a tenant and can make or break a tenant’s decision to lease. How can landlords ensure that amenity spaces address the needs of the modern-day occupant? This panel will explore the above and share insights into this important area of value creation.
