New York a Top Contender for Flexible Offices

Nearly half the total flexible workspace in New York City is listed as co-working space, showing the quick evolution from the executive suites of old to a new hybrid model that blends shared and private office space. This is a strong indicator of a healthy market – with robust demand – and an appetite among developers and operators of space to increase the supply of centres to meet demand.

According to Michelle Bodick, VP of Sales and Marketing for the US atThe Instant Group:

“From our experience in New York’s market, SMEs and corporates are both taking a keen interest in the type of “curated space” that co-working operators provide so well. With these spaces providing a variety of amenities, while being creative in their provision of networking events and working hard to engage with their occupier base, it’s of little surprise co-working spaces in New York has grown to over 47% of the flexible office space market.”
