Ways of making your home office more inviting, conducive to work

Does COVID-19 have you working remotely? Is your home also an office? You can still separate your work from home life. Here’s how Bay-Area interior designers are optimizing productivity in the home workspace.

– Keep it minimal – you won’t be as productive in clutter.

Heather Hillard, Owner of Heather Hillard Design, says,

“Try to keep the desk surface clear of papers and too many personal items. The goal is to limit distractions from work. I encourage having art and decorative accessories on other surfaces in the space, but keep your immediate workspace clean and relatively sparse.”

– Consider a standing desk.

Hillard says this is especially useful if you find you are more productive on the move.

– Work in a well-lit place.

“All desks should have a good task light in addition to overhead lighting so as not to strain your eyes,” Hillard said. “However, if you’re working

Desperate landlords offer renovation subsidies to lure tenants as Hong Kong’s vacant office space hits 21-year high

Hong Kong’s commercial landlords are offering incentives such as renovation subsidies to lure tenants, as the amount of office space lying empty reaches the highest level in 21 years, according to property services company CBRE.

Some landlords have begun offering a one-off subsidy to help new tenants fit out their office space, said Alan Lok, executive director of advisory and transaction services for offices at CBRE.

“In some cases, the landlord would offer a subsidy of about HK$100 (US$12.9) per square foot,” said Lok during a briefing on Wednesday.

The subsidy is attractive because relocation costs in Hong Kong are very expensive, he said. For a prime renovation costing HK$1,000 per sq ft, the relocation cost may add up to HK$1,200 per sq ft after including the price of returning the office

Susan Aitken, the leader of Glasgow city council, has written to the home secretary, Priti Patel, describing the move as “unconscionable” and saying: “The city stands ready to fight this.”

Three elected mayors, faith leaders from all the major religions and hundreds of NGOs coordinated by Naccom (No Accommodation Network), Asylum Matters and Migrants Rights Network have sent open letters to Patel calling for an immediate halt to the mass evictions plan.

After improvements, part of West Eleven office park heads to auction

About a year after the former Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan buildings in Southfield came under new ownership following a contentious court battle, part of what is now known as the West Eleven Office Park is heading to auction.

The auction for 27350 W. 11 Mile Rd. runs from 1 p.m. Nov. 16 to 1 p.m. Nov. 18 with a starting bid of $1.35 million for the 159,200-square-foot vacant building.

At one point, the building was “shuttered by debtors” and “unfit for occupancy,” court filings in Oakland County by Southfield-based brokerage house Farbman Group said last year.

The building is one of four that I wrote about in November stemming from a series of mind-boggling lawsuits between Canadian investors targeting each other in Oakland County and federal court, with allegations ranging from fraud to implications of one party in a double murder in Toronto.
