You’ve seen trendy shared workspaces popping up around NYC as the gig economy continues to grow and more employers consolidate company space. But what if you could access such a workspace — one that takes you away from the distractions of home, while also keeping you as close to home as possible — without ever leaving your building?

“We noticed a growing number of our residents working from home, and we responded to that trend in 2017, with the opening of our first rental building in Brooklyn. The result was TFC HomeWork: cutting edge co-working spaces integrated within common areas,” explains Zoe Elghanayan, VP and Principal at TF Cornerstone.

Space: The Final Frontier

“Now, you can find TFC HomeWork spaces in a number of beautiful buildings. They are designed to be sleek, sophisticated and — most importantly — functional,” she says.

“For example, the HomeWork space at 33 Bond Street includes phone booths, conference rooms, super cute booth seatings, communal worktables with built-in power, and even a terrace with its own solar powered worktable. HomeWork at 33 Bond Street has been a huge success, and gets a ton of use from residents working from home, students or those simply looking for a quiet place to plug-in and focus,” says Elghanayan.

Existing buildings also got a dose of HomeWork – in part by adding greater access to power. “In the lobby of 2 Gold Street€ in the Financial District,” Elghanayan explains, “we added outlets to the base of a banquette running across the wall. On the third floor, we added chairs with built-in USB power and a retractable desk table.”

Other buildings featuring HomeWork amenities include 4610, 4720 and 4545 Center Boulevard in Long Island City, 505 W. 37th St. in the Hudson Yards neighborhood, and The Max | 606 W 57th Street in Hell’s Kitchen. The latter incorporates space for group and individual work throughout common areas — including the fitness center. Learn by visiting TF Cornerstone at tfc.com.
