It seems more and more people are starting to work from home, at least during part of the work week, and if you find yourself in a somewhat similar situation, it’s important to consider not only your personal needs when looking for a new condo for sale in downtown Chicago, but also your professional needs as well.
A Forbes article from 2013 estimated 30 million Americans work from a home office at least once per week, with a study from Telework Research Network estimating that number is expected to increase by 63% in the next five years. New technologies like video conferencing are making travel and office expansion less necessary, which is just one contributing factor in the growing trend of working from home. Other benefits include cutting down on time spent commuting, as well as the added cost of gas in the car or paying for public transportation. So, while the need for more office space might be shrinking, the need for home office space is at an all-time high, making work-live spaces in Chicago a very hot commodity.
Many different factors can go into finding the right live-work space in Chicago, some of which may include the industry you work, how much privacy you need, and of course how much additional space you need. Artists and musicians, for example, may need lots of additional room to store their creative works or various instruments and equipment, while others may just need a small den that fits a desk and a computer.
Whatever your needs may be for a work-live condo, downtown Chicago certainly has some viable options that should fit all your needs and wants. In fact, many such listings are located in some of the city's hottest and trendiest neighborhoods like the West Loop, South Loop, and River North.
