The emergence of a co-working or shared office space is a relatively recent phenomenon in Australia. While co-working spaces began to appear around fifteen years ago, it has been over the past five years that the concept, both globally and locally, has really taken off. During this time, Australia has seen exponential growth in the number of sites offering shared office space, with plans in place for many more over the near term. For owners of commercial property, an opportunity may exist to take advantage of this growing demand for the co-work offering.
