Event Summary

"The office landscape in Washington, DC is clearly favoring tenants over landlords due to the increase in supply, a trend that is expected to continue for at least another year and a half as new construction comes online, organic demand remains stagnant, and landlords look to stay competitive."

According to Cushman & Wakefield,

despite overall vacancy rates in the District of Columbia

declining from the fourth quarter of 2018 to the first quarter of 2019 —vacancy rates should begin rising again as early as the second quarter of this year. More than ever before, tenants are looking for a live/work/play experience within the workplace — a means to socialize, yet be productive; to interact with colleagues, but to have the ability to sequester themselves for a conference call if need be.

It seems office developers have nailed down the psyche of the millennial tenant. But what will happen when Gen-Z takes their place?
