CBRE is partnering with Uber to ferry tenants to the office and bring them lunch.
The world’s largest real estate services company’s global workplace experience service, CBRE Host, and Uber for Business will give tenants “enhanced access” to the Uber platform at select office properties across the US.
CBRE Host – which are offers “technology-enabled, concierge-quality workplace experiences, to landlords, tenants and occupiers” – said it will now be able to provide “innovative commuting solutions and flexible meal options, which will differentiate CBRE-managed properties and enhance the tenant experience.”
The new program will be rolled out initially at office buildings owned by funds sponsored by CBRE Global Investors as part of its Above and Beyond TM program in Chicago; Washington, D.C.; Atlanta; Dallas; Pasadena, CA; and Anaheim, CA. In addition, CBRE Host can offer the program at several corporate campuses and headquarters locations for occupier clients of CBRE’s Global Workplace Solutions business.
“Our goal is to facilitate a seamless workplace experience, which now includes making it easier and more efficient to get to and from the office,” said Alex Andel, Executive Managing Director of CBRE Host.
“By partnering with Uber for Business, we deepen the amenities we can offer to our clients in new and interesting ways—including more effective drop-off and pick-up locations, access to ride promotions and easy bundling of other Uber for Business services, such as food delivery.”
In conjunction with Uber, CBRE Host will offer complimentary designated pickup spots at select CBRE-managed buildings, increased access to ride promotions, and the ability to utilize Uber Central, a dashboard designed to facilitate a simplified and efficient rideshare experience.
“Mobility is increasingly important with office properties and can be a big differentiator in the tenant experience, influencing the way people interact with their surroundings,” said Leslie Bateman, Head of Real Estate, Uber for Business.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with CBRE Host to support more convenient transportation and commuting solutions, as well as food delivery options for tenants.”
