Office politics

I don’t know about you, but I spend more time in my office than at home during the week. While I like my office well enough, I have to say that looking at renderings like the one Gensler gave us to run on the cover of this issue makes me sometimes wish my office had a go-kart track or floor-to-ceiling windows and a food truck ring by the lobby. You can see my office
wishlist on page 26.

Alternatively, offices are calling some unique obsolete and vacant buildings home. Read about Phoenix’s new wave of office product in our annual NAIOP section on page 49. Office is also paving the way for more retail development with the focus on work-live-play environments. Read about NAIOP’s plan to extend its previously industrial and office-focused organization’s
resources to retail developers on page 70.

The shifts in commercial real estate extend to the legal community, as reported in AZRE’s annual Real Estate Law Guide (begins on page 34). Regardless of where you read this issue — from the comfort of your house or work (your home-away-fromhome) — I hope you are able to appreciate the sense of community arising in the way all industries are approaching commercial real estate.
