Malaysia Chapter hears insights from real estate agents The Ma- laysia Chapter of CoreNet Global kicked off 2019 with its "Property Outlook 2019" program in February in Kuala Lumpur. For the first time, the group invited four leaders of Malaysia's top real estate agencies to share their insights on corporate real estate. The four distinguished panelists, shown here, were, left to right, Datuk Christopher Boyd, executive chairman of Savills Malaysia; Foo Gee Jen, managing director of CBRE-WTW; Y.Y. Lau, managing director of JLL Malaysia; and Sarkunan Subramaniam, managing director of Knight Frank Malaysia. Moderator for the event, right, was Khoo Hsu Chuang, co-host of BFM's Radio Morning Run and contributing editor at The Edge Media Group. Middle e ast Chapter ponders longevity of flex space Is flex space here for good, or just the latest real estate fashion? That was the question posed to those attending the CoreNet Global Middle East Chapter's event, "Disruption or Distraction," in March. The group discussed the growth of flexible office space, which has reshaped global office markets over the past few years, with adoption increasing by 30 percent in key global cities in 2018. Noting that Dubai is currently lagging behind other major global markets, JLL suggests the stock of flex space will continue to grow rapidly over the next five years. This session explored the reasons for the growth in demand for flex space and examined how the Dubai market is likely to be affected by these trends.
