That’s going to take some time and different people will react differently.”
Others anticipate businesses will adopt a “work-from-anywhere” model, where they will continue to have an office presence to utilize downtown Ann Arbor’s amenities, such as easily grabbing a bite to eat or meeting with others, while also maintaining a productive schedule outside of a formal space.
