The coworking phenomenon is still growing, and that’s not just in Philadelphia.

There are nearly 800 coworking spaces in the U.S., up from just over 300 two years ago, according to a survey by DeskMag the New York Times reported..

One of Philly’s original coworking spaces, Old City-based Indy Hall, got front-page treatment as part of the Times’ feature.

The story highlighted Indy Hall’s community spirit:

No wonder some work spaces are playing up their party atmosphere. Link holds “Mad Men”-themed holiday soirees. [At] Indy Hall in Philadelphia, which opened six years ago, members organize after-hours jams and art shows in their mural-covered space, all in line with a quasi-communitarian dogma espoused by Alex Hillman, a founder of Indy Hall.

“People aren’t going back to the office for the office,” Mr. Hillman said. “They’re going back to the office to be around people again.”
