“When the pandemic ends” has been a common refrain, but we cannot deny that some things will never go back to “normal.”
Among these is the work-from-home setup for many companies, as well as the rise ofh ome-based businesses.
For this, people have begun to seek places for their new-normal lifestyles.
Imagine your sleek corner office in a posh high-rise serving as a tranquil setting with a nature view. Then visualize yourself heading for a round or two in an exclusive golf course or sweating it out at a gym and then bonding with family and friends at a specialty restaurant.
All these just a brisk walk or short drive from your beautiful home where you’ve just wrapped up a productive workday. No traffic, no smog or pollution — just clean, crisp mountain air and a year-round cool breeze.
