Small Tenants, Big Changes
Smaller tenants are driving entire buildings to change, says Honest Buildings CEO Riggs Kubiak (with Monday Properties' Hani Salama, also at the NYC Property Management Summit), as owners and managers rush to retrofit for tech tenants. Connectivity is the single-biggest building quality tech tenants look for, not to mention cell signal. Five or 10 years ago, it wasn't a big deal if your didn't work in a building, he says. (Back then, before Seamless, you also had to talk to a real person to order lunch—how barbaric).
