The rental housing industry is evolving to meet post-pandemic demands of tenants as work-from-home opportunities spark a growing desire among many Americans for additional living space and innovative home features. Community managers for some rental companies are offering additional outdoor amenities like gyms, green spaces, fire pits, and pools, according to The Washington Post. 

Other rental properties are implementing designated co-working spaces that resemble a traditional office. Rather than logging onto work from their apartments every day, residents can test out new workspaces and can even initiate professional contacts with their neighbors.
