Workforce and consumer preferences are changing - the real estate industry now has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to regenerate the built environment in a sustainable and responsible manner.
The pandemic has had an enduring impact on our urban environment and changed the way we live, work and play. ‘Real Estate Generation’ will require taking inspiration from fresh thinking and developing innovative plans that have a positive impact – adding sustainable value for ‘cities’, businesses and wider community stakeholders.
At the asset level, Re-Generation will entail sustainable transformation of assets with agility and innovation to deliver financial and social value.
For the people that occupy and use the built environment, Re-Generation will mean delivering a renewed sense of place with strong sustainability credentials and one that offers users a positive experience wherever they live, work and play.
This creates the need to repurpose the built environment in sustainable and responsible ways and requires a shift in the criteria for assessing return on invested capital to include ‘environmental’ as well as ‘social’ impact.
