washington post live interview with mihir shah

Commercial real estate (CRE) is experiencing a seismic shift, and intelligent real estate is playing a vital role. JLL Technologies Co-CEO Mihir Shah sat down with Fortune’s Leadership Editor Ruth Umoh on a recent episode of Washington Post Live to discuss how data and technology are driving better outcomes for the entire industry.

One of the biggest trends taking shape is the need for organizations to evolve to meet the demand of hybrid work. This is where real estate technology shines.

“In the last few years, we’ve seen prolific growth in the adoption of real estate technology,” said Shah. “Forrester did a survey last year of top CRE decision-makers, and 80% of them said that they were going to spend more on real estate technology.”

Real estate owners and tenants are adopting more technologies to make the transition to the hybrid workplace easier and more effective. To be successful, they need to address three things:

  1. Space utilization
  2. Logistics and employee experience
  3. Healthy, sustainable environment

Enter intelligent real estate. It’s the dawn of a new era—and companies need to adopt it to be prepared for the future. It includes intelligent buildings, intelligent spaces, and intelligent advice.

Intelligent buildings:

Intelligent spaces:

  • Desk-booking
  • Space utilization
  • Comfort and energy efficiency

Intelligent advice:

Together, this is the future of real estate, and it’s a great opportunity to make lasting change in the industry.

“As we like to say at JLL, it’s really about shaping the future of real estate for a better world,” added Shah.
