With rapidly changing financial technology and ever-increasing on-demand services come new opportunities to redevelop and reuse commercial and industrial spaces. Will driverless vehicles reduce the need for central warehouses? Will restaurants need more kitchen space to accommodate increasing takeout orders? How will existing retail, office, parking and industrial spaces be repurposed to meet these changing needs, and what are the mid- and long-term implications for housing in your markets? Finally, how will deregulation and revisions to the tax code impact every one of those questions?
