Commercial buildings aim to attract millennial tenants
"Smart office owners are thinking ahead," said Newman. "They may have a building today that is almost fully rented. However, leases eventually expire and owners are looking at ways to retain these tenants. It goes beyond simple upgrades to 'urbanizing' the suburban office building and bringing what's going on in New York to New Jersey. At Kimmerle Newman Architects, many of our corporate clients are asking for coffee and juice bars in the lobby space, open ceilings, fitness centers, polished concrete finishes, bike rooms, and rooftop decks and other expansive outdoor spaces. Everything we are doing is making these buildings cooler, hipper and designed with tenants' needs in mind for years to come."
