Armano Real Estate is helping tenants to leverage market conditions to maximize economic value and to help meet their hybrid workspace plan and vision. We most recently have been achieving annual occupancy cost savings in the 35% to 65% range through negotiating rent reductions and implementing space optimization plans. We also have been achieving huge landlord concessions in the form of tenant improvements and free rent.
