I’ve lived in Southern California for twenty years moving out from the Jersey Shore in the 1990’s and have been honored to call Venice my home these past seven years. And while much have Venice has seen overwhelming change in its long-storied history (see oil derricks on the beach), in many respects, it hasn’t changed a bit.
From the beginning of the corporate housing industry there have been two primary consumers of corporate housing, relocating executives and business consultants. But over the past decades, corporate housing has evolved into a major segment of temporary housing.
All too often I receive inquiries from a potential seller that wants to “get the highest price” for their property, but does not want to list it, or market the property. This seems counter intuitive, especially to the basic law of economics, supply and demand.
The retail market in Los Angeles is made up of many shopping destinations such as malls, lifestyle centers, and strip centers that total 192 million sq feet. During 2017, lifestyle centers gained popularity because of their open-air design and layout, which included hip and trendy restaurants, smaller sized retailers, apartments, offices, and entertainment options.
A small-box retailer operates their business very much the same as their larger counter parts but utilizes less square footage. This means that they don’t need as much space for their products and therefore have a lower rent and fewer staff to deal with which equals a lot less overhead.
I receive calls like this almost every week…. “Hello, my lease is expiring and I need a new office space” or “Hi, we’re moving our company to Los Angeles and we need new office space.”
Inevitably, when I inquire about their timing they say they’re in need of a new space in one or two months. Although that time frame is possible it brings difficulties. A big misunderstanding among first-time commercial lessees, as well as many experienced lessees is that a commercial space can be found, negotiated, and leased within a couple of weeks.
Gone are the days of sitting for hours behind a line of desks and in compartmentalized cubicles in front of bulky computers.
Workers want more natural light, interaction and collaboration with colleagues, to have the ability to work outside and have access to other amenities in or around the office building, panelists said at Bisnow's Los Angeles Office: Workplace of the Future event Wednesday at the Convene coworking space at the Wells Fargo Center in downtown Los Angeles.
