Abstract: The movement of much business activity into the Internet economy raises concerns about today’s office building market. Looking at demand elements that are relevant to the evaluation of the impact of the information revolution on this market, the author provides several conclusions about its long-term future. The first is that its future prospects are by no means bleak over the next several decades. After that, radical change becomes a real possibility. While office space will never whither away, what it is and where we will find it will probably be changing substantially by the second half of the 21st century.
