Newsec Property Outlook

Spring 2019

(Co-)working 9 to 5 – is that the new way to make a living?

Spring 2019

The sharing economy continues to take the world by storm, and co-working in particular has undergone striking growth over the past few years. The Nordics are no exception, having seen a sharp increase in the amount of available co-working locations in the region. Both local and international co-working operators have chosen to establish and expand locations in a wide range of Nordic and Baltic cities. In the latest issue of the Newsec Property Outlook we analyze the co-working trend and look at how it will affect the property market.

Key insights

  • The total co-working stock in the Nordic and Baltic countries has grown by 36 percent from 2017 to 2018. Following this strong growth, the amount of co-working space will continue to increase by another 24 percent in 2019, up to 680,000 square meters.
  • Co-working as a share of the total office stock will continue to grow, from 1.5 percent in 2017 to about 2.5 percent in 2019.
