Offices 2020 –  
your clear vision to 
Asia Pacific’s 
office landscape

JLL’s Offices 2020 explores the changing trends of commercial real estate in major city centres providing ‘foresight with purpose’ into where Asia’s urban map is headed. We pin down growth fundamentals and deconstruct the office landscape from the outside-in, providing insight to maximize the opportunities. Find out how rapidly advancing technologies and a great shift in workplace goals have transformed the office landscape in the region. 

Disruption is driving change as we anticipate how the office and CBDs in our cities remain relevant in the face of scarcity in real estate, rapid proliferation of technologies and the shifting expectations of a young workforce. The future belongs to those who can understand, embrace and prepare to take charge of these disruptions.” 

– Jeremy Sheldon, Managing Director, Markets and IPS, Asia Pacific 

Smart building systems with interactive controls create a direct feedback loop between building occupants and the built environment, which is absent in legacy building systems. Offering employees the opportunity to leverage this feedback loop to optimize their comfort levels is an important step in creating a more productive workplace.
