Tech, catering and
design companies are rushing to sell employers on fever scanners, box
lunches and office floor-planning apps for social distancing. But it’s
too soon to tell if they will work.
Truework, an income verification start-up, recently introduced software to help employers keep track of their workers’ health status.
Gensler, an architecture and design firm, has a workplace floor-planning app that generates social-distancing layouts for desks and other office furniture.
Hospitality and tourism has been shaken by the shutdowns caused by
COVID-19. 2020 was poised to be the ‘Year of Milwaukee’ as a result of
hosting the DNC, Bucks inevitable championship run and dozens of other
conventions and events. These events bring visitors to our City and
fill our Hotels. Hotels with hundreds of rooms were under construction
in advance of welcoming guests for the DNC when ‘Safer at Home’ orders
were issued. Now, hotels are beginning to reopen and…

enclosed spaces are petri dishes for the coronavirus. But in urban
office buildings, elevators are a necessity, so companies are wrestling
with how to make them safer.
Change is coming to the daily vertical commute, as workers begin to return to tall office buildings in New York and other cities. The elevator ride, a previously unremarkable 90 or so seconds, has become a daunting puzzler in the calculus of how to bring people back to work safely after the coronavirus pandemic kept them home for months.
Employers and building managers are drafting strict rules for going up: severe limits on the number of riders (four seems to be the new magic number), designated standing spots to maximize social distance, mandatory masks, required forward-facing positions — and no talking.
How will social and public behaviors be impacted? How will physical spaces have to adapt? Can we look to technology to provide any transitional assistance until a new normal is achieved? And how will spaces that have traditionally been communal, high-touch, very tactile settings – think retail and high-end luxury experiences – be forced to morph as the world adjusts to new norms?
A logical candidate to address these issues is David Schwarz..
Potentially thousands of vacant hotel
rooms are ripe for conversion into permanent residences, deputy mayor,
housing groups and hotel owners agree.
City officials are looking to capitalize on a distressed
tourism industry by converting commercial hotels into affordable housing
— including creating single room occupancy units known as SROs.
The exploration of cheaper alternatives for affordable
housing and supportive housing — offering health care and social
services for people with mental illness or substance abuse disorders —
comes as the city struggles to overcome a fiscal crisis prompted by the coronavirus pandemic.
Ken Notes: done right this could work. Units sub 50K could be “sold” to homeless using a stipend/credit system for good behavior and unit maintenance. Of course in government hands this will be a mess. We should give all the bankrupt hotels to Habitat for Humanities and let them run the entire program.
Richard Laermer has some advice for all the companies rushing pell-mell into this remote future: Don’t be an idiot.
A few years ago, Mr. Laermer let the employees of RLM Public Relations work from home on Fridays. This small step toward telecommuting proved a disaster, he said. He often couldn’t find people when he needed them. Projects languished…
Ken Notes: I can, and the dogs definitely talk back. There will be successes and failures in the work from home market. And just a note from my consulting days, the problems will often be in how employees are “managed” not how they preform. Also you must do a personality survey on every employee to see in which environment they will preform best…
work for millions of Americans has put a new premium on a quiet and
comfortable place to work from home.
A third of respondents in a
recent Zillow survey report working from a home office currently, with
the rest forced to repurpose another area of their home such as a living
room, dining room or bedroom into an office space. Working out of a
shared space that`s not designed to support long hours in front of a
computer can bring distractions and other frustrations — especially as
open concept layouts have soared in popularity in the past few years —
suddenly putting a premium on a quiet, separated workspace.
Ken Notes: What a great opportunity for an office supply company to do some staging in new home sales. Visualize this…
6000 square feet total with approximately 2000 square feet of
office including a 15` x 20` conference room. 4000 square foot
warehouse a dock and drive-in loading door.
Should they opt to let workers keeping logging in from home, urban areas will have to great creative to fill skyscraper vacancies, just as New York City did in the 1990s, said Rudin Management CEO and co-chairman Bill Rudin.
“Downtown was a ghost town,” Rudin told FOX Business` Maria Bartiromo on Friday, referring to lower Manhattan after decades of budget shortfalls and rising crime. “There were 30 million square feet of vacant space, and what we did was we came together, the business community, [the] government, and we created the downtown plan, which allowed conversion of older office buildings to residential.”…
the COVID-19 pandemic, including government shutdown orders for
non-essential businesses and shelter-in-place rules that have virtually
stopped all in-person shopping. Even as these restrictions are finally
being relaxed to a limited degree, the dramatic effects of the pandemic
will long be felt in the retail industry. This alert addresses just one
of the consequences in the wake of COVID-19: the expected rise in
bankruptcy filings by commercial landlords and, as a corollary, what
retail tenants should do to protect their rights and seek available
remedies when faced with a landlord’s bankruptcy… …more

The struggling, 85-year-old vitamin and supplement retailer said it has reached an agreement with the majority of its secured lenders and key shareholders to pursue a dual-path restructuring process that will allow the company to emerge as a standalone business or for it be sold as a going concern. The plan allows GNC to restructure its balance sheet and accelerate its store optimization strategy. Last July, GNC, which is saddled with nearly $1 billion of debt, announced plans to shutter approximately 900 stores. As of March 2020, GNC had 7,300 locations globally, including 5,200 in the U.S…

A new survey released June 24 by the American Hotel & Lodging Association
found that just 18 percent of respondents had taken an overnight trip
since March, a good indicator of how the COVID-19 pandemic has
devastated the hospitality industry.
The survey of 2,200 adults, conducted by Morning Consult from June 16
through 19, also asked respondents whether they planned to take at
least one vacation or overnight trip not related to business during the
rest of 2020. The results? Not many Americans are planning pleasure
trips this year…

Office workers can
officially return to their buildings, according to state officials. But
many employers have no such plans ahead
Some think it’s because a post-pandemic world will never exist, and workers must be protected from health threats. Others say it’s more to do with business accounting, as saving money on rent is wise for any company in a shaky economy. …
