Spaces – Commercial Real Estate News, Trend Insight and Research

0 CommentsBy

Welcome to Spaces, a Jones Lang LaSalle blog designed specifically for commercial real estate leaders throughout Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and neighboring states. Spaces offers insight, news and current research findings that impact the opportunities and challenges you face as you look to own, invest in, or occupy corporate space.

Spaces is written by a team of Jones Lang LaSalle commercial real estate professionals who understand the industry as well as the complexities involved in finding, negotiating and constructing the best physical environment for your business to thrive. Combined, our contributors have hundreds of years of hands-on experience in:

  • Commercial real estate leasing, negotiating and financing
  • Market economics and trends
  • Real estate investing
  • Construction and project management
  • Facilities and property management

Since lease renewal or relocation decisions are not made every day, we know how difficult it can be to understand the complexities once the process begins and the far-reaching impact these decisions have on your business, your employees, and your ability to compete and grow.

What’s in a Name?

You may wonder how we arrived at the name Spaces. It wasn’t easy, but we felt the name was broad enough to cover this vast industry as well as the individual employees that make up our office environments.

  • Spaces refers to a geographic area—addressing issues specific to this area of the country
  • Spaces refers to actual places—the cities, streets and buildings in which we invest, maintain and grow our businesses
  • Spaces also refers to the individual work space where we create, collaborate and discover new, more effective and efficient ways of doing business
