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.
Many office employees are anticipating heading back to private office settings to benefit from the stimulation and social interaction it provides, not to mention distancing ourselves from our households and housework. While some others have settled into their work-from-home routines, not missing the hustle and bustle of commuting in and out of the office.

With vaccination efforts going strong (45% of New York State residents have received at least one dose) and the mayor has just announced the city will fully open on July 1, a much larger share of the white-collar workforce is expected to return to now-vacuous acres of Manhattan office space. On Monday, May 3, 80,000 city workers will begin returning to their desks, and announcements from private sector firms have trickled in as companies such as Google and JP Morgan have released their plans to return-to-office this summer.

However, remote work appears here to stay in some form for some employees. A Gallup State of the American Workplace study found that nearly half of all employees were already working remotely with some frequency, pre-pandemic. For those who will maintain the flexibility of working remotely, the best of both worlds may be found in buildings that provide comfortable communal workspaces outside of their apartments. Residents of the following buildings benefit from amenity spaces that offer ample workstations, plush furnishings, and inspiring views an elevator ride or stair climb from their apartments.
