BuildingsNY Meeting Room

The spread of COVID-19, subsequent economic downturn and regulatory responses have all significantly impacted rental real estate. From past experience, we know that disruptive times call upon effective leaders to catalyze foundational changes to their businesses. Building owners and operators reacted quickly, shifting leasing, maintenance, remote working strategies and more to adapt to the initial shock. But which adaptations will stick? Join us for a presentation on what's here to stay in the industry and strategies resilient organizations are taking to emerge from this period in a position of strength. At the end of this session, participants will: 

· Understand the impact of remote work, not only on your operations, but its effect on communities, amenities, renovations, and construction

· Determine which investments are worthwhile and which will be obsolete due to a trend actually becoming a fad

· Develop a roadmap based on best practices to modernize your business and make it resilient to future external shocks
