Creative space has been in high demand the past few years. Historically, companies wanting to office in creative space would seek out historic buildings with exposed high ceilings, concrete floors, brick and timber. This usually meant old systems and very dated building infrastructure. As Portland's tech market matures, and tenants move into their growth phase, they have a need for higher levels of amenities and state of the art building infrastructure, along with the efficiencies that can be achieved in a larger floor plate - not usually found in historic buildings. These creative tenants started looking at more traditional buildings and landlords began to understand that they could capture the tenants if they were willing to do creative build-outs and make other types of concessions.  
 
Is this an indication that the move to creative space is here to stay? What impact do these businesses looking for “creative spaces” have on landlords, brokers, and contractors?
 
Patti Moller with First American Title, National Commercial Services will moderate a thoughtful discussion on this hot topic that includes views from the landlord, broker, tenant, and contractor.

  •      Building Owner/ Landlord: Unico Properties - Brian Pearce, Sr. Vice President, Property Management
