As businesses are reopening soon, professionals have started to adapt to the new normal and no exceptions to the multifamily communities. The latest survey conducted by Colliers suggested 82% of employees hope to remain work from home at least once a week after the pandemic.

Coworking space has gradually become an amenity of choice for many multi-residential developers and the trend will only accelerate as a result of more remote work.  Ben Krasnow, Crescent Communities Managing Director, is optimistic that the size of coworking spaces likely increase within projects the design will be catered more to the digital nomads or people who can work remotely digitally and are not bound by any specific location.

According to Universe Holdings Chairman and CEO, Henry Manoucheri, aside from coworking space, Universe will look to change unit themselves, making them bigger to be very cognizant of creating an office or nice comfortable workspace inside their units. While Hord Coplan Macht principal Chris Harvey said he doesn’t see units getting bigger, except more efficient to more easily allow for remote work. Beyond indoor workspace options, Harvey said a property’s outdoor amenities will rise in significance if people are without daily trips to an office and the social interaction that experience brings. Harvey added that designing for wellness will continue to become more important. For instance, by lighting stair towers and making them more appealing, HCM and developer High Street Residential encouraged their use instead of elevators in a Pittsburgh project.
