Co-Working Or A Private Office? Have Both With Serendipity Labs

What’s the ideal work style for your business and employees? Maybe you envision a quiet, private office with minimal distractions. Or, perhaps a co-working space, with its community oriented focus, is more suited to your company’s culture. Preferred Office Network member, Serendipity Labs, recognizes the need for both options, and has developed a model to accommodate any work style, with a focus on hospitality. Featuring private offices, co-working space, meeting space, and space to host events or take a break, Serendipity Labs’ centers have it all.

Founded in 2013, with its first location in Rye, NY, Serendipity Labs has grown rapidly thanks in part to its franchise model. With over 100 locations in hot markets like Houston, TX and Chicago, IL currently under development, there will be no shortage of these hybrid spaces for companies to utilize. What sets Serendipity Labs apart from other coworking spaces is their upscale environment and ability to meet the needs of enterprise clients.

As members of Preferred Office Network, clients utilizing space in Serendipity Lab centers will enjoy all of the revolutionary benefits offered in other Preferred member centers, including a No-Term lease agreement.

Without a doubt, co-working will remain a strong force in 2017 and beyond. Recent JLL research into the shared office space market states the U.S. co-working industry represents 27 million and growing square feet of workspace. Below are a few takeaways,  and you can read the entire report here.

-The top 5 markets for co-working space in 2016: New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Boston

-The need for co-working space is somewhat Millenial-driven, but also the result of increasing freelancers, temporary employees, and start-ups. As these jobs continue to grow, so will the need for co-working space

-The price per square foot to rent shared space is higher than traditional office space, but with everything included in one package deal, there is long-term savings to be had by avoiding a lengthy lease and up front capital
