Got tired of the whole "Covid=cities are over" narrative. Instead, it's the rise of the neighborhood center. Transportation systems are often designed for peak commuters. Let's focus on a travel pattern long neglected: the off-peak neighborhood trip. https://t.co/ZOiiBYCNGa

The way the world works is changing: safety is top of mind and flexibility is a must. How will we go from what isn’t working to what will? Teams need spaces that foster collaboration while prioritizing wellbeing. Companies need offices that flex to evolving demands in a variable world.
Editor’s note: Some of our covid-19 coverage is free for readers of The Economist Today, our daily newsletter. For more stories and our pandemic tracker, see our hub M OST PEOPLE associate the office with routine and conformity, but it is fast becoming a source of economic uncertainty and heated dispute.
Offices around the world were left empty during the pandemic, making business particularly tough for some flexible-space operators as occupiers reacted to economic upheaval. Now, some of the larger operators are looking to capitalize on challenges in the sector, pushing ahead with plans to expand In June, listed flex-space group IWG took over 30,000 square feet of office space in Hong Kong that had been leased previously by another flex operator.
Should she get reelected as Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo plans to turn the French capital into a myriad of neighborhoods where “you can find everything you need within 15 minutes from home.” But, preferably, not by car. Instead, the Socialist Party politician wants more Parisians to walk and cycle.
Typical coworking amenities include shared desks, community kitchens, foosball-ridden breakout rooms and more. But in the wake of the ongoing pandemic, shared workspaces are having to uproot these traditions in order to keep members safe. The uncertainty has caused companies, such as Regus, to file bankruptcy for 91 affiliates.
As 2020’s experiment with working from home turns into something more permanent, GitLab-the world’s largest all-remote company-offers a glimpse of what’s ahead, for better or worse.
COVID-19 has brought great uncertainty to the office market, between shelter-in-place orders, workers’ fears of being too close to others indoors, and the success for many of the forced working-from-home paradigm that the pandemic caused. All of this presents a unique opportunity for flex-space services, as Breather CEO Bryan Murphy shared with Commercial Observer reporter Nick Rizzi during a recent Commercial Observer Power Briefing.
The way people work is changing due to COVID-19, and, as a result, companies are adjusting their office space strategies to meet the current moment. Few companies understand the office market like WeWork, a flexible office space provider with more than 800 locations globally.
Coronavirus has rippled across the world, taking hundreds of thousands of lives and changing many millions more. One striking side-effect is that across many organisations, urgent necessity has become the mother of management invention. The pandemic has ignited new initiatives, refreshed old ones, and compelled managers to reassess an approach still often based on being close to their staff.
Some workers are slowly returning to the office, and with this comes increased responsibility for landlords and business leaders. The reality of a large second wave is still a major threat, leaving the real estate market anxiously waiting for the unknown.

Hey Dribbble, Unfold had the awesome opportunity of doing a brand refresh for 7Pace. Our goal was to evolve the logo and reimagine it in a bold new way. How did we do?
