Rental Building News and Offers

420 Kent Avenue (ODA/Spitzer Enterprises) 420 Kent Avenue (ODA/Spitzer Enterprises)
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.

Below, CityRealty ranks the best rentals for working remotely.
1. 420 Kent Avenue
420 Kent Avenue designed by ODA New York
The latest to begin leasing, this ODA-designed creation in Williamsburg 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. For breaks, head on over to the billiards and gaming lounge, the piano room, or the catering kitchen. A 24/7 concierge is also available.
2. HOUSE39, 225 East 39th Street
(Rose Associates)
With a coffee bar, library, and workstations at House39, you'll never want to head back into the office. Your work-life balance will also be achieved with their other amenities, which include plenty of outdoor spaces with gorgeous city views and the convenience of a 24/7 concierge.
3. Jersey City Urby, 200 Greene Street
(Ironstate Development Company)
This Jersey City rental offers residents a 9 Bar Cafe in its lobby with a variety of seating and food options, a communal kitchen, a communal "living room" with workstations, a garden room for those zen breaks, and an outdoor patio with seating and BBQ grills.
4. The Chelsea, 160 West 24th Street
After undergoing a renovation, The Chelsea now offers hotel-inspired spaces perfect for working from home. Current amenities include an outdoor terrace lounge, a residents' lounge complete with complimentary WiFi, workstations, and a flat-screen television, and Hello Alfred, a personal assistant app that does everything you need – from groceries to pet care – with the help of a trusted home manager. Soon enough, the building will open even more amenities, including its own espresso bar.
5. Jackson Park, 28-40 Jackson Avenue
(Hill West Architects/Tishman Speyer)
An amenity haven, the Jackson Park complex is truly its own community in Long Island City with its private 1.6-acre park, a bocce court, tech lounge, private dining room, private conference room, sky lounge, 24/7 concierge, LIVunLtd virtual concierge, and of course, building-wide WiFi.
6. ALTA LIC, 29-22 Northern Boulevard
(Citi Habitats/Simon Baron Development)
Alta, another LIC development, is also fit for those days when trekking to the office is simply not an option. The Alta+ Cube second-floor amenity space is specifically tailored to your needs with several co-working spaces, an event space with Sonos Sound System and a massive screen, and a game hall with billiards.
7. The Eugene, 435 West 31st Street
(Brookfield Property Group)
NYC's tallest rental skyscraper has a ton of spaces for play, including a basketball court, arcade room, and piano lounge, but it's also fit for working. The Eugene has a sophisticated library lounge and a private dining room. Additionally, LIVunLtd concierge is there to take care of nearly everything you may need for your home.
8. The Frederick, 570 Saint Johns Place
The Frederick in Crown Heights launched leasing last month and while there aren't a ton of photos to check out the new space, which combines pre-war elegance with 21st-century conveniences, it does boast a lounge and collaborative workspace with a custom marble fireplace and concierge support through BuildingLink. Tenants can also relax and take in Prospect Park views from the landscaped roof deck.
9. Journal Squared, 615 Pavonia Avenue
(KRE Group)
A towering presence in Jersey City, Journal Squared features a 10,000-square-foot lounge set up with WiFi and workstations with NYC skyline views.
