Miami is outpacing other major cities in returning to the office, a new report from Placer.ai shows.

  • In February, Miami and New York City led the post-COVID return-to-office trend, with in-person office visits down 9.4% and 14.5%, respectively, compared to February 2020.

Between the lines: The influx of new tech companies and businesses relocating their headquarters to South Florida could be driving the trend, the report suggests.

Yes, but: In some cities, extreme weather and winter storms left many employees stranded at home.

Caveat:
The study only looked at commercial office building data and buildings with retail on the first floor. It excluded mixed-use buildings.
