Working from home could be given a new meaning in London's Square Mile, as plans have been unveiled by the City Corporation to convert deserted office space into 1,500 new homes. The office exodus sparked by the coronavirus pandemic has left many companies wondering whether it is worth the cost of having a permanent footprint. Many have already reduced floorspace and others have laid out plans to uproot in the new era of flexible working. The Corporation report laid out a commitment to making the City an "outstanding environment" saying it would "explore new ways to use vacant space and aim for at least 1,500 new residential units by 2030." It also said it is looking to rapidly roll out 5G networks and slash emissions by improving infrastructure.
