    RESEARCH REPORT: Commercial real estate under the spotlight – six months on from returning to the office, what has changed?

    By Christine Li Head of Research, Knight Frank Asia-Pacific

    Throughout the pandemic, the attitudes and relationship we have with the workplace has continued to evolve. Expectations of the demise of offices is now grossly misplaced while the emergence of a hub-and-spoke model has not panned out. Now, the rhetoric has shifted towards hybrid working – a large grey area that spans the spectrum between the extremes of office and remote work, which can be further complicated by cultural tendencies. For occupiers, it is a tug-of-war – between maintaining productivity and sustaining a corporate identity on one end and retaining and attracting talent at the other – the outcome of which will have massive implications for landlords and investors. 

    • What does the current performance of the region’s office markets say about the adoption of hybrid working? 
    • What are the emerging occupier trends and how will leasing demand evolve in the new environment? 
    • What are the changing tenant needs/expectations of a hybrid workplace? 
    • Contrasting Grade, A with Grade B properties and the opportunities created in value-add/repurposing strategies
