It’s not just homes that are marketed with a ‘lifestyle’

For residential property the quality of life is a key factor and buyers will often be persuaded by the lifestyle that a home promises. The same is becoming more important for offices.

A new report from Colliers says that in Calgary high-profile suburban properties are tempting new occupants with the lure of a great lifestyle: proximity to quality residential neighbourhoods, retail outlets, health services and restaurants.

It’s perhaps not surprising given the amount of time we spend in our workplaces. And with a new wave of companies that allow a flexible approach to working, it’s not all about the 9 to 5.

As retaining the best employees becomes a tougher job for businesses this shift towards making sure the office is in a vibrant neighbourhood is becoming more vital.
