State of the Market: What does the commercial real estate market look like today, and where will it go in a post-pandemic world?

Please join us on Tuesday, February 9, from noon-1 pm, for an insider look at the current and post-pandemic office, industrial and retail markets in the Bay Area. How has the pandemic affected current leasing activity? What do future market and space planning trends look like? Which trends are fleeting and which ones are here to stay?

Three leading brokers will discuss the current market dynamics in the office, industrial, and retail leasing markets, as well as their thoughts on how these markets will evolve in the post-pandemic world.

It's free to participate. Members may invite up to two guests.
