As many of us are currently working from home, and some of us are shifting to a permanent work from home environment, it is important to designate a specific space in your home to work. If you currently have a one-bedroom apartment and are feeling cramped, the Arena District and Grandview Yard offer many 1-bedroom options which include a den, perfect for transforming into a formal work space and lighter on the pocket than a full two-bedroom.
One-bedroom with a den available now:

The film’s mad dash through the Louvre and impromptu café dance sequence have been mimicked by filmmakers ever since. (97 mins, digital video) Learn more HERE.
