Developers are even doing office-like fit outs to accommodate client requests.
For example, Krisumi Corp has come up with a two-bedroom plus work combination of flats at the first phase of its 65-acre township in Gurgaon.
“We have realised the need of the present times. We have converted the three-BHK configuration to a two-plus work, where we will do the fit out and provide the facility required to run a mini office,” Krisumi chief executive Akash Khurana said.
Experts said such configurations are also attracting corporates and they have been booking such flats in bulk.
“The developers are changing with the time and are offering as per the needs of the customer. In future, the government might consider giving some incentives to the developer if he is giving extra space to work from home and also (helping in) saving fuel,” said Vineet Nanda, an independent real estate consultant.
“There is definitely a demand for space within the house which can be used as an office. We are thinking of squeezing some space from rooms and the common hall to give our homebuyers a small room to work,” said Rohit Gera, managing director of Gera Developments.
Some luxury developers are planning to have bigger business centres in the upcoming projects realising the need for separate work spaces.
“In our upcoming project in Gurgaon, we will have a bigger business centre, which can function as a mini office for residents,” said Silverglades group CEO Anubhav Jain.
Developers are using clubhouses, usually reserved for leisure activities such as pool, indoor games or spas, to create a small working centre with workstations.
