From how we communicate to how we buy services and how, and where, we work. But lately, technology’s impact has hit closer to home, in our industry.

Monthly job growth has been choppy as of late, though recent months have been more heartening. And while we still expect an uptick in economic activity over the course of the year, GDP growth projections have generally been ratcheted downwards. This implies another year of slow, but hopefully steady, improvement in office fundamentals.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://nreionline.com/commentary/where-demand-office" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://nreionline.com/commentary/where-demand-office#comments Commentary News Office Research & Data Thu, 20 Aug 2015 08:40:00 +0000 1787991 at http://nreionline.com International Money Is Stretching Out the Recovery Cycle http://nreionline.com/commentary/international-money-stretching-out-recovery-cycle <div class="node-body article-body">Remember the phrase “follow the money”—meaning that understanding a complex deal requires examines where funds are heading?

Real estate fundamentals continue to improve. Balance sheets of most firms have been steadily strengthening, with increasing margins, profitability and top line growth.
