As the impact of COVID-19 on the real estate investments space continues to transpire, it is no surprise that we are seeing exponential demand within research. One of the big questions surrounds the fluctuations of office sector demand. 

Research conducted by The Townsend Group and Capital Economics concluded that global demand for offices is set to decrease by up to 10% by 2030 (more specifically, 9-12% in the US within the next five years). Given that offices typically constitute a significant proportion of institutional real estate portfolios, it is interesting to see where investors are diversifying and reallocating capital as a result of these shifts in demand.
