With the flexible workspace industry showing no signs of slowing down, new investment opportunities are approaching the booming sector.
Now, the sector is large enough to accommodate traditional income seeking institutions which could lead flexible offices to mimic other successful property sectors. In this case, flexible spaces would skyrocket and become a distinct asset class.
While many coworking firms have established their place in the industry, some traditional property owners such as the Brown Estate and Landsec have launched their own flexible platforms in order to keep up with the evolving workforce.
In order to attract income seeking investors, the sector must emulate the two distinct asset classes within the commercial property sector: student accommodation and hotels. Their strong performance has left investors searching for other property assets that show promise, and named the flexible office market as the next potential are of growth.
