CBRE Group announced a new company division Oct. 31 that aims to pair property owners with businesses that need office space for a short time.

The downtown-based outfit, which bills itself as the world’s largest commercial real estate firm based on 2017 revenue, has created Hana, a wholly owned subsidiary, that will, “help institutional property owners meet the rapidly growing demand for flexible office space solutions,” according to a press release.

These offerings will include, “conference room and event space that can be rented on an hour, daily or weekly basis,” as well as, “traditional co-working space.”

The division will launch at the beginning of 2019 and be headed by Andrew Kupiec, who joined CBRE after he was chief operating officer for Zipcar.
