Bookmarks: 5 Interesting Articles That May Help You This Week

April 30th, 2018

Each week, I select a few articles that rise above the fray and hopefully help you on your journey in the CRE world. They pull from one of four “corners:” corporate real estate, technology, management science and anything positive. I welcome your comments on these articles and the submissions of others (with credit to you if I post them). I wish you a terrific week!

How Humble Leadership Really Works
“Leaders often do not see the true value of their charges, especially “lower-level” workers. But when leaders are humble, show respect, and ask how they can serve employees as they improve the organization, the outcomes can be outstanding. And perhaps even more important than better company results, servant leaders get to act like better human beings.”  www.hbr.org

Loft Office: The Hidden Cost
Our projections suggest that tenants of these loft office conversions can expect an increase in occupancy costs of anywhere from $2-$4/sf based solely on an increased tax pass through from the landlord.  That is roughly a 10% percent increase and it is possible that loft office conversions located in up and coming areas (like those near the Beltline) will see multiple tax reassessments during the term of a tenant’s lease.” www.evolutioncre.com

Atlanta Office Is So Red-Hot, CRE ‘Is Pinching Itself To See If This Market Is Real’
Pleased to be quoted in the piece: ““Atlanta’s real estate industry is pinching itself to see if this market is real,” Cushman & Wakefield Executive Director Ken Ashley said in an email. “Velocity in Atlanta’s office market is at a torrid pace. There is robust demand for space by companies of all sizes and from a variety of industries. Expansions are as common as millennials noshing on avocado toast.” www.bisnow.com

Your success blesses others. I wish you a great a hugely impactful week!
