Many landlords that would traditionally provide leasehold or leased office spaces to rent in Brooklyn are now also offering non-leased workspace options.

Tenants looking to sublet some of their excess office space can often provide short-term office space rental options.

We provide access to these flexible leasing options, too.

Why it Pays to Compare the Whole Brooklyn Flexible Office Space Market?

BK and BKLYN – ok, so, Brooklyn doesn’t have quite as many monikers as its fellow boroughs, however, when it was classed as a city in the past, it was actually known as the largest city on earth, so, there’s that.

It may not have the same number of nicknames but with over 2.5 million residents today, it is still the most populous of the Five Boroughs. And, incidentally, if it was classed as a city today, it would be the third most populous in the US.

It may not have the same number of shared office providers as its neighbor across the river, either, but with over forty, the number is significant.

And, Brooklyn is the home of workspace provider Green Desk – which was the precursor to WeWork – arguably the best known of all coworking and private office providers, globally.

Brooklyn is also the home of many high-profile office occupiers including Buzzer, Etsy, Huge, Kickstarter, and Vice Media, to name just a few.

Today, the demand for the type of office space that flexible workspace companies like WeWork and Green Desk create and provide is in growing demand.

It has been growing since the Great Recession, but its popularity has risen significantly since the Covid-19 pandemic.

Following the events at the end of the 2000s, companies started to increasingly seek out recession-proof office space options that had elements of future-proofing built-in.

Many businesses across a wide range of sectors had to make large numbers of redundancies, so found themselves with an excess of office space and those that were tied into leases would have to continue to pay office rent until they had a contractually agreed option to exit.

As soon as they were able to, many organizations looked for workplaces that were available on more flexible contracts with shorter terms.

Many looked for month-to-month workspace options or other agreements that were easier to exit.

These offices that were easier to exit also had the advantage that they were easy to enter, too, as they were furnished offices with most amenities rolled into the monthly fee – these offices that required lower levels of commitment and Capex increasingly grew in popularity.

Another by-product of the Great Recession was the increase in the number of workspace options available to freelancers in Brooklyn. The rise of the gig economy came from people wishing to take control of their own careers and destinies and so choose to work for themselves. This empowering choice, combined with lower barriers to entry in many sectors, meant that there was a new wave of workers looking for desk space for their business – armed with a laptop and their favorite coffee mug.

The demand from corporations seeking flexible business space plus freelancers seeking hot desks or dedicated desks led to something of a flexible space revolution in the 2010s – suddenly there was a growing range of desk space options, private office suites, open desk coworking options, private turn-key office space that is managed by an office provider, various forms of executive office suites and other forms of managed workspaces available throughout Brooklyn.

Of course, flexible office space had already been available for decades but with this increasing demand, and due to the rippling effects of large high-profile operators such as the aforementioned WeWork who focused on creating design-led spaces, the quality of these workspace options grew considerably.

Sometimes referred to as the ‘hotelification’ of office space or ‘workspitality’, there was somewhat of an increasing crossover of workspace and hospitality represented within these flexible business space properties. Occupiers of these spaces were finding that these business centers were now equipped with cafes, gyms, meditation rooms, there were networking events providing access to investors and many other ‘added extras’.

Many of these business centers were dog friendly, had bicycle storage, showers and locker rooms and with the full range of additional services created, these places of work increasingly supported enhanced work-life balance, particularly as many of these buildings provided 24/7 access.

Large corporations also found great value in these flexible office space options, too and terms such as Workspace as a Service (WaaS), Headquarters as a Service (HQaaS) and Space as a Service (SPaaS) started emerging within commercial real estate and corporate business lexicon.

The demand from different types of users meant that the market grew considerably and, once seen as great office space options for startups only, these flex space options were being used by the full spectrum of businesses from freelancers to SMBs and Fortune 500 multinational corporations.

Whilst the Great Recession was a major catalyst for the flexible space industry, the Global Covid pandemic that started in 2020, created another accelerant.

Most office users found, during lockdown periods, that they were unable to use their offices, however, the ‘cloud’ became a silver lining for many businesses – with cloud-based technology and applications such as Zoom and Teams, many businesses were able to continue to operate.

This lead to a largescale re-evaluation as to how to use the office post-pandemic – was the office needed longer-term?

It wasn’t until the office was taken away that businesses and employees, alike realized the value of face-to-face interaction, having a team base, and working in physical space that facilitated the osmosis of ideas – many spoke of the missed benefits of routine and the psychological benefits of separating home from work, some even spoke about the benefits of the actual commute to a place of work.

Working-from-home (WFH) worked for some, although this depended on the business, the department, the management style, the organizational structure and the type of work, as well as the living arrangements of team members, as well as other factors.

What this global remote working experiment led to was a re-evaluation of working culture as a whole.

What has been clear since this period is that many businesses are now seeking Covid-compliant, ultra-clean agile office space that has various elements of flexibility built-in, allowing them to remain resilient to future unexpected events, whatever they may be.

Many companies are experimenting with hybrid working whereby they utilize homeworking for remote distributed team members, collaborative creative workspaces for team meetings, project work, training and other tasks, and smaller repurposed headquarters offices, in some cases.

As the time and space requirements of a main or headquarters office decrease, for some, many are also looking to upgrade their office space. This flight to quality is motivated by employers wishing to create people-centric spaces that encourage their team members and clients to get as much as possible out of the office, and, of course, to feel safe and highly valued.

Businesses are increasingly making proactive choices with their workplaces that allow them to be efficiently reactive in the future.

Workspace that grows with them but can be scaled down if need be.

As this industry grows and, as many traditional office landlords that would normally only provide office space to rent in Brooklyn are now offering more flexible workplace products and non-leased office space, there is also increased crossover between traditional workplace products and flexible space arrangements.

This can make the office space market somewhat difficult to navigate at times.
