Launch date for shared office space Industrious pushed back again

Expect it in early spring. Also, plans for a second location are now on hold.

Industrious, the shared office space we told you about last summer, won’t open its first Philadelphia location until early spring, according to its website and confirmed by cofounder¬†Jamie Hodari.
It’s the second time the opening has been pushed back: the¬†two-floor, 20,000-square-foot spot on South Broad Street was originally slated to open late last fall but got pushed back to December.
“It’s just normal construction stuff (from the building’s end, not ours),” Hodari wrote in an email.
Industrious’s flagship is in Chicago and its founders are based in New York City. The company originally planned to launch a second Philly location, in Old City, shortly after the first location’s launch but Hodari said that the team now plans to gauge interest in the first one before moving forward with the second.
“We’re full with a waiting list in our other markets, but Philly is a unique town, so we’d rather understand peoples’ desires here a bit more before expanding,” he wrote.
