Atlanta, one of the country’s fastest-growing cities, owes much of its expansion and economic upswing to the tech industry. According to Forbes, the number of tech companies based in Atlanta has increased nearly 50 percent since 2010, and as these companies continue to multiply and expand, the city welcomes more and more shared office buildings to accommodate remote workers, early startups, small but established businesses, and everything in between.
Consider these 5 excellent shared office spaces if you’re looking for a well-equipped and conveniently located Atlanta home for your work life.
Industrious, a growing force in the coworking industry, has five coworking spaces in the Atlanta metropolitan area, but their location in Ponce City Market stands out as particularly desirable. Industrious is a popular choice among remote workers, freelancers, and small business owners, thanks to its business model that combines hotel-quality hospitality with the efficiency of a traditional office. It costs $450+ per month for coworking and $995+ per month for private offices.
WeWork, like Industrious, chose to open multiple locations in the Atlanta area. Their newest, located in Buckhead’s upscale shopping and business district, has a polished interior spread across two towers, providing plenty of space for small businesses and freelancers alike.
The price is $220 per month for “hot desk” coworking, $350 per month for dedicated desks, and $510-9050 per month for private offices.
Alpharetta, an Atlanta suburb with a thriving (and steadily growing) population of young professionals, is an ideal location for a coworking space, and Thrive rises to the occasion. This space welcomes all types of freelancers, small businesses, startups, and digital nomads, and Thrive makes a concerted effort to connect its early-career members with experienced mentors to help them navigate their professional journeys. Thrive even has a partnership with IgniteHQ, allowing members of both spaces to benefit from the benefits of the other and expand their networking opportunities.
Open coworking costs $139-335/month, $345+/month for dedicated desks, and $625+/month for executive suites.
