Atlanta – April 10, 2018 – Colliers International and LiquidSpace today announced the launch of their co-branded Flexible Office Solutions portal, to serve the short-term office needs of Colliers clients and professionals in Atlanta and across North America. The portal enables the efficient discovery and online transaction of flexible office space from coworking and serviced office spaces, private businesses with space to share and landlords, by the hour, day, month or year.
The partnership also entails a collaborative approach to flexible office solutions. Colliers is empowering their clients with a full range of flexible office space solutions from the LiquidSpace network, whether comparing office listings at coworking spaces, or furnishing a private suite from building owners, clients will have more options to take office space on flexible terms. For institutional owners working with Colliers, the portal will help owners turn structural vacancies in their properties into cash-flow, while incubating smaller tenants needing flexible space, into longer term tenants expanding within their property.
“LiquidSpace is joining forces with Colliers to bring the power of our platform and network to their clients and professionals,” said Mark Gilbreath CEO of LiquidSpace. “It’s a powerful combination, merging the Colliers expertise and relationships with the technology and flexibility of LiquidSpace.”
“Colliers has witnessed a shift in the market: tenants of every size are seeking greater flexibility in their portfolios and owners and landlords are looking for new ways to address this demand,” said Bob Mathews, President/CEO of Colliers International in Atlanta. “Technology is an integral part of maintaining our focus on providing our clients with the best service in the industry. Partnering with an innovative company like LiquidSpace is key to that mission.”Partnering with LiquidSpace empowers Colliers brokers in Atlanta with technology to better serve the end client, and sets a precedent for the future of flexible real estate.
Colliers has recently been making moves to establish the company as a thought leader in flexible office, including a partnership with Techstars to create a Proptech Accelerator. Of these partnerships, Marty Pupil, Colliers International President, U.S. Brokerage says: “We look at relationships with Techstars and LiquidSpace as enabling us to learn, adapt, invest and understand what tools and platforms can differentiate us as a company and ultimately service our clients better.”
The Colliers and LiquidSpace partnership will solve numerous flexible office needs, giving existing clients more options and flexibility in their real estate pursuits. Colliers tenants with too much space now have direct access to the LiquidSpace platform to list and monetize that space. Landlord clients will benefit immensely from the flexibility and speed of the LiquidSpace product suite, while maintaining their ongoing relationships with the Colliers team, providing a full-stack approach to flexible real estate. The goal is to expand the network of each company to meet flexible office demand in Atlanta. The portal is live now, here: www.ColliersFlexibleOfficeSpace.com.
