April Workspace News Round-Up

Yet again, we have looked at some of the recent developments in the world of workspace. We are bringing you several links to read during your next coffee break or to kick off your week.

We’ll start with an especially big one. It has been quite a big week for WeWork. Reportedly, IBM has become the first single corporation to take an entire WeWork space in New York. Also, WeWork has announced its new management service, which is set to open the floodgates to more corporate deals.

For most of us, this post might inspire a little bit of envy. Forbes listed the 5 most beautiful co-working spaces in the world. Check them out here to get your co-working lust going: https://www.forbes.com/sites/eustaciahuen/2017/03/31/5-most-beautiful-coworking-spaces-in-the-world/#7514efc65524

This one is really interesting – an alternative to WeWork and other “traditional” co-working spaces. Have you heard of a startup called Spacious.com? If not, read how they are transforming fine dining restaurants into co-working spaces during the day here: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-04-03/people-are-paying-to-work-from-bars-and-restaurants

Bonus link: if you liked the post about the most beautiful co-working spaces in the world, maybe this one could have been listed too, especially if you are a minimalist freak (like me). I’d have loved an opportunity to visit this place, for at least for a bit.

That’ll do it for this news roundup; let us know what you think. We’d also love to hear from you about other nice offices we should look into – perhaps even yours. Looking forward as always.
