The Deal Sheet; Creative Offices Include Doggie Daycare
What's more desirable than a downtown address in a high-rise tower? A collaborative space with more parking. And, believe it or not, doggie daycare. (Puppies are the key to the wallet.) Those are just a few of the things we learned this morning at Bisnow's Creative Office Summit at the Westin Galleria.
Cresa Dallas managing principal Susan Arledge (left, with panel moderator, Mary Miano of GL Seaman & Co) says she's never had a client (yet) tell her that money is no object. (Where's Howard Hughes when you need him?) Instead, tenants are seeking flexible spaces for collaborative working. And, in the case of one tenant, a doggie daycare. It was the driving factor in inking a deal with a developer: Doggie daycare or no deal, she says. We'll tell you more about the event in next week's Bisnow Dallas-Fort Worth. So, come on back Monday for more coverage!
