    How will flex space be part of next-gen office buildings?

    As tenants call for increased flexibility to meet the demand of dispersed teams and hybrid environments, flexible space can help make an asset more competitive in the market. What started as a sweet deal for startups and smaller companies looking for malleable lease terms, co-working has accelerated to a multibillion-dollar industry in demand from every sector. This is why JLL has predicted that 30% of office space will be flexible by 2030.  
    So, how can you be sure you’re serving up what your tenants need and ensuring your assets have the right mix of space amid this changing environment? Find out in this special live episode of Building Places, where host James Cook interviews JLL’s trifecta of flex expertise, including Jacob Bates, Head of Americas Flex by JLL, Anastacia Anderson, Vice President of Investor Partnerships, and Kez Anderson, Senior Vice President of Sales.  
    James Cook is the director of retail research in the Americas for JLL.

    Chicago's Old Post Office was once the largest post office in the world. Now it's home to 2.5 million square feet of office space, a food hall, a tenant lounge and more. But to make a place more than just real estate, it has to be activated with experiences.
    Tom Larance, Head of Experience Management at JLL, and Jamie Sowski, who manages marketing and events at the Old Post Office, explain how they made that happen.

How can building owners and occupiers work alongside cities to tackle emissions within their assets and across their portfolios?
