Meeting's Overview

The UK office market continues to shine with sales at relatively optimistic pricing post COVID. However, with ESG, rising inflation and occupier work preferences changing, is the prime commercial office still the jewel in the crown for portfolios or are smart investors, owners, operators and developers  rethinking their game to reposition office assets and unlock value?

GRI Club UK members will come together for a collegial discussion on the future of the UK office market, designed for those with AUM and capital at risk in the UK, the conversation is designed to foster dealflow, engage with peers and meet new partners.

Discussion will touch on

Demand
  • London - Is the pricing right?
  • The Regions - Offering enough competitive returns?
  • WFH, Mixed Use, Flex, Tech & ESG -How is demand changing and how to remain competitive?
  • Tenant Experience & Preferences - How to create greater experiences for the users?
Values & Dealflow
  • Where to chase yields? Core, Core+ or Repositioning?
  • Pricing - Dangerous inflation, increase in construction costs and ESG regulatory restraints?
  • FDI Capital - Has there been a slowdown or never better?
  • Bid & Ask Gap - Are we back to pre COVID levels and for better or worse?
Portfolios & Asset Management
  • The strength of mixed use schemes and placemaking - Is the traditional office concept dead?
  • Sustainable Portfolios - New and core or repurpose is the new golden value add?
  • Are real estate players embracing more and more tech & innovation solutions to build and diversify office portfolios?
Disruptors & Innovation
  • The strength of mixed use schemes and placemaking - Is the traditional office concept dead?
  • Space & Digital Transformation - Are these transformations generating some of the fastest-growing smart and innovative office building management practices?
  • Tech Solutions - What are the most positive ones for creating better efficiency, sustainability & financial results?
