10 Beautiful Telecommuter-Friendly Apartments

29 January 2018

“These residential buildings cater to busy professionals by making it easy to work from home.”

A recent report highlighting the growth of telecommuting in the U.S. suggests that more Americans will be working from home in the future. The 2017 State of Telecommuting in the U.S. Employee Workforce Report found that 3.9 million U.S. employees, or 2.9% of the country’s total workforce, work from home at least half of the time, up from 1.8 million in 2005 (a 115% increase since that year).

Obviously, living in a building that’s well-equipped for working remotely is becoming more important to residents, especially during times of disaster: Hurricanes Irma and Jose forced millions to work remotely, and developers across the U.S. are taking stock.

Below are 10 examples of residential developments nationwide that go above and beyond to create beautiful professional environments within a residential setting.
