Top 10 Rentals for Working Remotely

With the number of telecommuting workers increasing 115% in a decade (2005-2015), it seems fair to say that the work from home movement will only continue to rise now that millennials – who make up the largest portion of the workforce – are more likely to accept a position with a remote option. And while co-working and shared spaces are gaining momentum in the city, there's just no place like home, especially if you live in a building that provides amenities like cafes, workstations, libraries, and relaxing outdoor spaces.

#1 - 420 Kent Avenue

No fee rental in Williamsburg

The ODA-designed Williamsburg rental offers the very best in amenities. For remote workers, 420 Kent features a lobby coffee bar, a co-working lounge, indoor and outdoor seating, and a library/quiet room, which is a no-cell-phone space meant for you to decompress and reconnect. When you want to take a break, head on over to the billiards and gaming lounge, the piano room, or the catering kitchen. A 24/7 concierge is also available.
