Covid-19 likely to accelerate shift to decentralise CBD

In an article by the Straits Times published on 30 May 2020, industry analysts have observed that the Covid-19 pandemic will likely accelerate the shift to decentralise the Central Business District [“CBD”] by bringing workplaces closer to homes while increasing recreational and residential spaces in the city centre.

 

Experts say that companies will now re-evaluate the size and function of their office spaces and may even decentralise their office functions to reduce the need for long commutes by their employees to the CBD. As a result, downsizing of office spaces and re-designing of office design in the CBD may be on the cards.

 

Amidst the Covid-19 crisis, it has never been more important for professional services to be located nearer to people’s homes and further from the CBD so as to reduce the population density of the city centre.
