Rethinking Real Estate – A Roadmap to Technology’s Impact on the World’s Largest Asset Class
Technology is revolutionizing the way real estate is designed, operated, and valued.
It is democratizing access to capital and information, changing the way tenants use space, and eroding the power of regulation. Billions of dollars are funding these new real estate technologies and operating models.
Value is shifting away from the assets themselves toward those who understand the needs of specific end-users and can use technology to deliver comprehensive, on-demand solutions.

Rethinking Real Estate answers that call. It explores the impact of technology on all asset types ― from retail projects, through lodging and residential properties, to office buildings and industrial facilities.

Whether you are an investor, developer, operator, broker, lender, facility manager, designer, planner, or technology entrepreneur, this book will help you navigate the exciting period ahead.
