October 29, 2020: Office Real Estate Opportunities

Many nonprofits spend a considerable portion of their budget on office occupancy costs. The current pandemic has created both challenges and opportunities in the real estate market. How can nonprofit organizations strategically manage real estate options during this time? Join Rick Lowe and Elizabeth Geary as they present an overview of the current Boston real estate market and anticipated trends over the next few years. Rick and Elizabeth will also discuss options for tenants with leases expiring in the next few years, those with excess space or who wish to terminate leases, and those who were forced out of the Boston market over the last several years but are looking to return.
