The coronavirus pandemic has transformed the way we live and work. The shift to remote working has put a question mark on the future of the office as we know it. As life gradually returns to normal, what will the office sector look like? Some companies want workers back to HQ, others are giving employees the choice. Is flexibility here to stay? Is the hybrid model likely to dominate, with workers only spending 2 or 3 days in the office? Will shiny offices in the CBD remain on companies' wish list, or will a more decentralised model emerge? Will employees' unwillingness to do long commutes lead to more local hubs? Will offices change shape, becoming more meeting points with conference rooms? Will bigger offices be needed as social distancing becomes the norm? What has the actual impact been on transactions and take-up so far? What's happened to vacancy rates? Which cities in Europe have been more resilient, and which have suffered the most? The pandemic has also shone a spotlight on sustainability and wellness. As employees demand clean air and healthy surroundings, how are landlords responding? What are the main challenges? Will environmental concerns lead to more repurposing of existing buildings, despite the cost and difficulties?
