The year in stories about coworking

More space, more desks, more people. Here's a look back at our coverage in 2016.

Thought they didn’t make it on our wrap-up post for 2016, we spent quite a bit of time this year writing about coworking in Philadelphia.

And going over the year’s top stories, the trend was easy to spot: Philly saw coworking spread even more throughout the city. More spaces and bigger ones popped up in town as well as across city limits. The trend, of course, is not proprietary to Philly. And hoo boy remember back in 2012 when we wondered if there was a shared office space bubble?

As Indy Hall’s Alex Hillman would quickly say, coworking is nothing without a community. We also saw a boost in events, programming culture and other apparent community-building efforts even from larger, more corporate coworking spaces like WeWork.

Here’s a quick look back at our coverage on coworking:

  • WeWork came hard for Philly: One of the nation’s largest coworking companies set up shop in NoLibs back in June, with a 30,000-square-foot flagship location. Expansion soon came by way of a 40,000-square-foot space on 1601 Market St. and a smaller spot at 1430 Walnut St.
  • Industrious raised that dough: With a $37 million series A, Brooklyn-based Industrious is planning a 12-city expansion but there’s no plan for a second Philly location just yet.
