Why Floored is Awesome, and Not Just for the Real Estate Industry

This is going to be BIG.

The other day, I looked at some real estate space on behalf of one of my portfolio companies. The owner sent me this. Maybe I just don''t have enough imagination or lack of the requisite architecture degree. At least it''s better than showing an actual picture of what the office looks like now, after the last tenant trashed the place on their way out. Or, if they didn''t trash it, they subdivided it for a colony of bees and painted it what can best be described as neon beige.

Some Thoughts On New Tax Revenues

While this is always hard and has a real toll on people who might lose their jobs or have to pay more in taxes, it is also an opportunity to do things that have been hard to do until now. This happens all the time in real estate and also with stock gains. This will also have the benefit of reducing the rampant speculation in real estate that has been making real estate so unaffordable for so many.

UrbanTech News Roundup

Dream It

On Real Estate Tech Zillow rolled out a 3D home touring feature across all of North America that allows agents to use iPhones or more advanced cameras to create a more robust listing. Some investors question whether WeWork can survive a downturn in the commercial real estate market and wonder why IWG, a company with about 100k more work stations than WeWork, is valued at ~$40 billion less than the coworking startup.

Thoughts on WeWork

This is going to be BIG.

Real estate was previously a huge headache for small businesses before WeWork made co-working mainstream. If all real estate goes the way of server infrastructure, with no one ever signing a commercial lease except for larger campuses like Google and Apple, then WeWork hasn’t even scratched the surface of its potential. I’m convinced WeWork is part of a sea change in how business think about real estate, and from great disruption comes great economic opportunity.

NYC Is Dead, Long Live NYC

A VC: Musings of a VC in NYC

Real estate tax revenues (which provide much of NYC’s income) will decline creating an even more difficult fiscal situation for NYC. There is a lot of negativity around NYC right now. Bloggers writing sensational headlines. That sort of thing. It makes me want to go out and buy a ton of NYC stock right now.

The Achilles Heel of Startup Ecosystems

This is going to be BIG.

At some point, a real seed round needs to get raised—and it needs to get led by someone. Not only that, but for many in the real estate world, their economic upside is already tied to innovation. Across the world, various economic development organizations, government agencies, and non-profits are putting in admirable and well-intentioned efforts to develop startup ecosystems.
