Marron Researchers Study the Impact of Remote Work


The acceleration of remote and hybrid work, together with shifting attitudes about the nature of work and changing labor relations, marks a potential turning point for the spatial structure of cities. Director of Civic Analytics, Constantine Kontokosta, Director of Urban Expansion, Solly Angel, and Research Scientist Bartosz Bończak have received funding from the Land Economics Foundation for “The Demise of the Commercial Business District? Using Mobility Behavior Data and Machine Learning to Understand and Predict the Impact of Remote Work on the Built Environment.” This study will shed light on the demand for urban workspace and locational decisions and provide a foundation for future, data-driven research. How do shifts in the use of employment centers influence real-estate prices? What are the impacts of new mobility networks on infrastructure use and local needs? Which communities are most at-risk from new work and employment spatial patterns?
