Insiders: New Jersey has only scratched the surface in co-working, flex office space sector

The country’s largest cluster of co-working and flexible office space is only just across the Hudson River, but the fast-growing industry is still largely absent from New Jersey. Experts say that is due to change — and it’s only a matter of time.

Hoping for growth

New Jersey has only scratched the surface in the co-working and shared office space sector, despite the fact that it is experiencing rapid growth in New York City and other major markets. Fortunately, we’re hearing that the Garden State is poised to grow its share. The industry’s biggest name, WeWork, has ramped up its search for space in New Jersey over the past year, which means its competitors may not be far behind. The requirements have the potential to further strengthen top submarkets such as the Hudson waterfront, while providing a needed boost in areas where vacancy remains high.
