Remote Work Round-Up

Nov. 30 2017

For the 1.7 million Canadians working remotely at least once a week, Andrew Tischler is about completely change the game for telecommuters in Toronto- and he's doing it from the ground up.

Tischler is building the first communal workspace condominium- featuring apartments with a built in communal workspace and all the bells and whistles anyone could ever want from an office.

"The 38-story, 541-unit condo development in Toronto's downtown core will offer a collaborative workspace that will be open 24 hours a day, included in the building's maintenance fees. It will provide users with access to tables, desks, office supplies, AV equipment and meeting spaces."

"The average condo unit in downtown Toronto doesn't offer a lot of work space," says Mr. Virani, with many units in the 500-to-600-square-foot range. He says having a communal office area where you live means owners who want to work remotely won't have to look for places like coffee shops or free space in the lobby of a condo building."

If you'd choose a condo with a communal workspace over a gym (although they have one of those too) you're not alone. The development is expected to be completed in two years, and is already sold out!!
