Coworking Adds Flexible Office Space to Transit-Rich Locations

A recent trend in office space, known as coworking, could potentially help transit-oriented developments increase diversity of uses among their mixed-use structures.

These shared spaces provide the comforts of a modern office environment to many employees who work independently or remotely. In addition to providing high quality business services, coworking provides spaces where workers can collaborate and interact face-to-face with fellow workers, clients, and others. The communal nature of coworking locations, and the opportunities for partnership that they create, are often as important as the facilities they provide.
