Rental Building News and Offers

These buildings are convenient for many offices, but the amenities may be too appealing to leave for work. These buildings are convenient for many offices, but the amenities may be too appealing to leave for work.
Nearly a month after the "stay at home order" was enacted in New York, people working in a wide variety of industries deemed non-essential have been doing their jobs from their homes with the help of technology. But for others, it was an extension of what they were already doing: In 2017, a Gallup State of the American Workplace study found that nearly half of all employees work remotely with some frequency. Those numbers have inched up in the few years since, especially in a city filled with freelancers and creative workers who might not have a permanent office space.

Forbes describes the current situation as an "unexpected global work-from home experiment" and predicts that by the time this is over, companies will offer employees greater flexibility for working wherever they can do their best, even if that's not in the office setting. And with amenity space to rival some of the ritziest co-working spaces, residents of the following buildings will certainly not feel inclined to leave home to go to work.

420-Kent-Avenue-01 420 Kent Avenue via Spitzer Enterprises
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 on hand. Personalized virtual appointments are available for this building, and all prices are net effective to indicate a rent concession.

Virtual leasing is available, and move-ins can be accommodated with adherence to enhanced cleaning and social distancing protocols. Prices are net effective to reflect an offer of four months free rent and one month OP on a 28-month lease.
