The Pandemic Real Estate Restructuring: Excessive Demand for “Good” Homes and Communities

GWI was the first to measure and analyze the global wellness real estate and community market in its groundbreaking Build Well To Live Well report $ 134 billion (The GWI also has a new initiative for this sector.) To say the momentum has increased since then is an understatement: COVID-19 has added value to homes, spaces and places where safety, health and wellness were important, radically accelerates the center.

“A revolution in rethinking real estate, communities and the built environment based on wellness principles spread before the pandemic, but this long crisis created a whole new way of thinking: The health of our homes and communities – where we live and how ‘well’ – has become a critical issue, “said Susie Ellis, GWI Chairman and CEO. “We felt that there was an urgent need to bring together the big players, thinkers, investors and innovators in a full-day, think-and-do-tank-like event to bring the latest insights and directions in this crucial, evolving environment Room.”

On the agenda are experts who deal with the latest topics in wellness properties and communities, such as:

  • What is the current US and global landscape like? Which markets are heating up?
  • What are the trends in technology and “hardware” design to create smart, healthy homes and communities?
  • What are consumers asking for most – and what are the latest developments – in wellness programs, whether it be communities with nature, human connection, green and regenerative living or medical wellness as the focus?
  • How will a work-from-home future lead to new developments that blur the lines between home, work and wellness and new goals and concepts?
  • How do hotel and wellness resort groups use a mixed hospitality-wellness-residence model?
  • How are wellness concepts being redesigned in a world that is aging like never before?
  • Given a decline in retail and office space, how could cities get a “good” rethink; What does the future of urban wellness developments look like?
  • Is a new wave of more affordable and inclusive wellness communities coming, driven by forward-thinking governments, policymakers, and developers?
  • What are best practices and innovations in funding, developing and operating projects? What kind of ROI do projects see?

During the day, new research results will be presented: Senior Research Fellows of the GWI Katherine Johnston and Ophelia Yeung will present the unprecedented 2020 market figures and discuss the impact of various global forces on the sector in the context of the evolving wellness economy and new public health and policy talks. In addition, Joanna Frank, President and CEO of the Center for Active Design, will present the results of the largest health and wellness study ever among real estate investors.

“While the term ‘wellness property’ first appeared a few years ago, COVID-19 has suddenly awakened a sudden awareness in all of us – the simple understanding that what surrounds us matters,” said Paul Scialla, Founder and CEO of Delos and Founder of the International WELL Building Institute. “We are excited to continue Delos’ eight years of research on this topic and to work together across industries to share new data, insights and technology, and ultimately improve the health and wellbeing of people around the world.” Scialla will be keynote speaker at the symposium.
