Real Estate is a slow-moving asset class, and the real estate industry is highly conservative. However, Real estate has been changing rapidly in the last decade under the pressure of Sustainability regulations and the emergence of a large number of innovative Proptech solutions, and the COVID-19 pandemic has only accelerated those changes. The drivers of Real Estate change have been identified through climate change, requirements for immune / healthy buildings and accelerated digitalization. Will the new priorities of investors in Real Estate and occupants requirements lead to partial or complete loss of value in certain types of real estate due to inflexible space and lack of possibility of easy and cost-effective change of use? Smart buildings with flexible uses, “self-sufficient” in the sense that they produce the necessary energy and process wastewater themselves, equipped with touchless technology and an intelligent air quality monitoring system, attract attention and become an investor’s priority. Application of the “big data” platforms changes the way buildings are constructed and

maintained as well as the way buildings are managed. How do these changes affect the work of Real Estate professionals?


To whom it is intended:

The expert discussion is primarily intended for real estate professionals and all persons dealing with real estate, whether in the legal or financial domain.
