Fairly merely, the information that Density gives — information that hasn’t been out there till now — is altering the best way corporations, actual property leaders and workers take into consideration and measure these main belongings.

I’m excited to share a brief dialog with Andrew about right this moment’s information and the place the corporate goes, which you’ll be able to see here:
