If the idea of office sharing is not something you’ve thought much about or investigated, your image of the spaces available may not be quite accurate. Oftentimes shared spaces are assumed to be bare “spare rooms” with the minimum essentials — an afterthought and a temporary solution at best.
That may have been the case in early days, but office sharing has evolved. Host companies are often growing companies that have leased more space than they currently need with an eye toward future growth. They’ve found a space with the location and style that’s ideal for their firm, and are offsetting costs by sharing excess space.
To demonstrate this idea, we’re profiling 3 of our PivotDesk postings in New York City that exemplify the modern workplace. With office sharing, young companies can move into excellent spaces likes these in the most desirable locations at a fraction of the cost (and risk) of a traditional lease.
