As coworking spaces become more and more popular across the country, an increasing number of these remote-work locales have been popping up in the suburbs. The Seattle suburbs of Bellevue and Tacoma actually rank as some of those with the highest number of coworking spaces in the U.S.
According to CoworkingCafe, 44% of coworking spaces in the nation are located in the suburbs — this can partially be attributed to the population shift away from urban centers seen in the past several years. “Historically, the picket-fence lifestyle has always been the epitome of the American dream,” the site’s report stated. “During times when remote work has become more widely available, and Millenials have settled down to raise families, larger and more affordable spaces on a cul-de-sac make perfect sense.”
In Bellevue, remote workers have access to 15 coworking spaces; in Tacoma, they have access to 14. While these are some of the highest quantities of any suburbs in the country, that number pales in comparison to the amount of coworking spaces in the suburbs of Los Angeles. There are 91 coworking spaces in Irvine alone, with over 100 additional coworking locations spread throughout Long Beach, Beverly Hills, Pasadena and other suburbs.
