In 2021, commercial buildings continued to face obstacles in an altered landscape with tenants still working from home. However, this represents a great opportunity for buildings in Arlington County to rethink their office space and prepare for the return of their tenants in 2022.
With better days on the horizon, Arlington Transportation Partners’ Champions program can help buildings attract new tenants and retain existing ones. Champions is an annual, year-long initiative that recognizes and rewards Arlington businesses, multi-family communities, commercial properties, hotels, and schools for their commitment to transportation programs.
In 2021, more than 200 businesses and organization joined Champions, and 27 commercial properties in Arlington County stood out in providing sustainable transportation options to their tenants. These options included transportation benefits and amenities to make it easier for tenants to bike, walk, take public transit, and share the ride to and from their workplaces.
Champions recognizes properties in Arlington County that are on the forefront of creating places that work for their occupants and connecting residents and employees with transportation modes and resources around them. Become a leader in your community and sign up for Champions today.
As buildings prepare to welcome back tenants and re-double efforts to sign new leases, commuter benefits and amenities can make properties stand out and become more attractive. Employers are looking to offer their new generation of workers the best transportation amenities possible to ensure a flexible schedule and contribute to sustainability goals.
Improving Bike Facilities
More and more commuters are choosing active transportation for their commute. Increasing bike parking both on the exterior of the building as well as an indoor bike parking, holding bike tune-up events, and making minor updates to existing bike rooms will go a long way in encouraging tenants to bike or walk to the office. Arlington Transportation Partners can help you upgrade your bike amenities and assist you in your quest to provide the best service possible to your tenants.
Providing Real Time Transit Displays and Tech
Investing in a well-placed live transportation display is another way to stand out from the competition. Tenants will be able to see their transportation options at-a-glance on their way in and out of the building, and can plan their commutes accordingly. Transit Information Displays (TIDs) can be customized to include other building information and announcements as well. ATP can facilitate the process for your property to install a TID as well.
Look back at the Champions from 2021, and plan on adding your name to that list!
