At BOMA’s recent Annual Convention in Seattle, Kingsley Associates’ Phil Mobley participated in an experimental new presentation called J.O.L.T. (Just Opportunities to Learn and Think). In this format, presenters speak for 5 minutes on a topic while slides advance automatically every 15 seconds. Thus, there’s a lot of information condensed into a very short amount of time. Check out the audio-visual presentation below to hear Phil’s presentation entitled “What are Tenants Thinking?”

Subscriptions to the latest BOMA Experience Exchange Report (EER) are now available. The EER is the real estate industry’s largest database of office building income and expense benchmarks. It is an invaluable tool for anyone wanting to build a property budget, evaluate vendor contracts or research a new market. This year’s EER has several new features:
- “Multiple-select” functionality that allows users to combine various markets and/or building demographics for a single analysis
- The ability to filter properties by building class (A, B or C)
- A new Premium Subscription allowing for access to multiple years of historic trend data
On July 10, Kingsley’s Phil Mobley and BOMA’s Tracy Glink led an online information and demonstration session designed to orient people to this year’s EER. To view this Webinar, click on the following: 2012 BOMA EER Demo
Note: Kingsley Associates has partnered with BOMA since 2009 to conduct the EER. All data collection and reporting now occur online at www.BOMAEER.com.
Kingsley Associates and BOMA have released the Autumn 2011 edition of the BOMA-Kingsley Report, a semiannual paper that takes an in-depth look at big topics in the office building industry. An analysis of data from the 2011 Experience Exchange Report (EER) forms the centerpiece of this issue, with a key finding being that office building owners and managers were able to hold costs relatively stable last year. In fact, utility expenses and property taxes both fell by substantial margins over the prior year – at least in terms of the national average.
The current issue also includes several other features:
- “The Numbers Tell the Story” analyzes some major expense line items across building types and major markets.
- A panel of leading industry figures look toward the future of performance measurement in “The Next Generation of Benchmarking.”
- In “Deconstructing Density,” BOMA’s Laura Horsley investigates the acceleration of tradition-challenging methods of using office space.
