How Much Demand Exists for Coworking
& Creative Workspaces?
Tuesday, September 29, 4:00 PM
140 South Broad Street
Recently there has been a significant increase in coworking spaces and leases to smaller, creative firms for upper floors of older buildings that five years ago would have gone residential. How deep and sustainable is this demand?
CPDC is releasing a report, funded by the Knight Foundation, on the independent workers who have emerged as a growing sector alongside traditional wage and salaried employment. Based on surveys of independent proprietors, start-up entrepreneurs and occupants of coworking spaces in Center City, the report looks at the makeup of Philadelphia’s Independent Economy, the diverse occupants of coworking spaces and what impact they may have on commercial real estate and the growth of Center City’s office sector.
