This week, readers visited Brick Underground to read about how new developments are adapting to the Covid era. Some developers are redoing layouts to include home offices and foyers for decontamination. They're also focusing marketing materials on the amenities that appeal to buyers and renters now, like private outdoor spaces and in-unit washer/dryers rather than shared amenity spaces.
