Business centers are office spaces open to an apartment's tenants that include the use of at least some desktop computers and usually access to printers, scanners and photocopiers. Some business centers are also equipped with mini-kitchens and complimentary coffee, tea and snacks.
As new apartment developments continue to add more amenities to their complexes, many are offering business centers in them to create added conveniences for their tenants.
Business centers are especially useful for residents who require a quiet place to work at home and not enough time or money in a budget to create an adequate home office space, or even for printing jobs that aren't common enough to justify owning their own printer.
Business centers are also great spaces to meet with a group of people. If your apartment complex doesn't offer a separate event space, it may be willing to schedule blocks of time for use as a meeting space.
If your apartment space likely won't have enough room for a home office but you need space to get work done, business centers can provide the perfect space for you to focus or take calls. Business centers are especially useful if they can be reserved ahead of time.
