1. Manifesto

 

the real estate industry is on the verge of being disrupted

 

by 2030, 20% more people will live in cities

  • Over 40 cities are projected to have >10 million residents in 2030
  • Younger people increasingly prefer to live in cities

Real estate owners lack data and insights

  • Website owners know more about their visitors than building owners do
  • Unknown visitors cannot receive personalized services or marketing
  • Buildings waste 50% of the energy they consume
 

leadership action will determine the long-term winners

 

tenants and consumers are changing their behavior

  • Premium on flexibility and personalized services
  • Unprecedented requests for responsible business practices
  • Emphasis on community and experience

shifting center of gravity

  • High structural vacancy (e.g. ~15% of office space in the U.S. is empty)
  • Increased competition and product commoditization
  • Costly capital investment with diminishing economic return
 

innovative solutions will unlock massive economic gains

 

$60 TRILLION OF REAL ESTATE AND INFRASTRUCTURE ASSETS

  • Modest operational improvements lead to large asset valuation gains
  • Sensors and data analytics enable cost-saving measures, predictive maintenance programs, and better capital investment decisions

new business models have growth potential

  • Inventive services can be built on top of data-analytics platforms
  • With new data streams, previously unattainable insights can be monetized
  • New construction techniques reduce capital investment and development time
