Coworking spaces here in Seattle are increasing by the number to meet the demand for alternative workspaces. The city is home to many tech startups, entrepreneurs in the clean energy space, freelancers of all kinds, and small businesses. Many of these people either work from home, their local coffee shop, or the neighborhood coworking office.
However, not everyone has a comfortable home office like the lucky residents of Blueground’s furnished apartments. And not everyone enjoys working in a crowded coffee shop. With homes all over Seattle and the Puget Sound, the real estate tech company knows that sometimes the most productive days are the ones when you work in silence at home.
Other days, coworking spaces can be a great solution to help you get in the creative flow and stay productive. Seattle’s coworking spaces are more than just a desk and an internet connection. They serve as networking spaces, temporary offices for startups and off-site meeting rooms for others. Check out our top five coworking spaces in Seattle.
