THIS OR THAT 

Lincoln Property Co. is leaning on virtual office tours offered through Swivel AgileView to ensure brokers and tenants can view commercial spaces before signing new leases and returning to the office.

The tech tool offers 3D virtual tours and allows Lincoln Property Co. to keep tours going even as potential tenants remain wary of returning to public worksites.
