Remote workers and business owners who are keen on cutting their real estate expenses but who also want to maintain a sense of structure have long been turning to co-working spaces as a solution.
According to the Global Coworking Space Market Insight Report 2023, demand for co-working spaces continues to rise around the world. These spaces offer a place for remote and hybrid workers to collaborate and work free from distraction.
For New York City business owners, the upcoming launch of Upperhaus NYC will offer all the amenities of a co-working space in a prime Bryant Park location. The location provides workers with easy access to subway lines, restaurants, shopping, and the New York Public Library. With 11 floors of desks, conference rooms, and private offices, Upperhaus opens its doors to workers on April 17, 2023.
Upperhaus’s co-working spaces can accommodate small business owners, independent contractors, and large corporations. Flexible pricing plans mean that workers can select the space that meets their needs and budget. These spaces help businesses reduce their bottom line by cutting back on real estate expenses. Instead of paying for utilities and maintenance, business owners can pay one leasing fee.
If the post-pandemic work environment taught us anything it’s that co-working spaces increase opportunities for collaboration and connection. Despite the many advantages, research shows that remote work can also increase feelings of loneliness and disconnection, and organizations may find it difficult to keep remote workers connected with their coworkers. Enter co-working. Spaces like Upperhaus NYC have rooms to host company events, a lounge for members, and a coffee bar, which increase opportunities to meet new people, and boost overall morale.
But, Upperhaus provides more than just a space to socialize. This new co-working location offers all the amenities that employees expect. Workers can connect to their company’s network using the high-speed WiFi, while printing and scanning stations ensure that workers remain productive.
In developing this new location, Upperhaus studied the trends in the co-working market. Upperhaus CEO Alex Passler states, “With 60+ years working in the flexible workplace sector, our team is globally recognized as some of the most knowledgeable and respected leaders in the industry. With vast experience from the world’s leading flexspace operators such as Wework, IWG, Servcorp and Compass, we are applying decades worth of industry learning, deal transactions, operational knowhow and an understanding of today’s market dynamics to our platform.”
