20-something UW research scientist is area's latest coworking operator

Alex Holland has the Eastside franchise for Office Evolution, which will soon open its first facility in Bellevue.

The country's largest coworking franchisor, Office Evolution, is entering the Puget Sound region, led by Alex Holland, a research scientist in a renal pathology lab at the University of Washington Medical Center.

Backed by his parents, Lisa and Frank Holland, he will soon open a Bellevue coworking office in a 12,750- square-foot space at Pacific Corporate Center (13555 SE 36th St.) near T-Mobile's headquarters. The Hollands have rights to two more Office Evolution centers.

Coworking is becoming a crowded field in the region with offices opening seemingly every week.

“Most of these other coworking spaces don’t cater to the type of clientele we cater to — older professionals lawyers, CPAs and other professionals who might currently be working from home," said the 24-year-old Holland, who looks at the Amazon-propelled wave of growth coming to the Eastside.

“In the next 10 years or so there are going to be huge, huge companies in the area and no room for the little guys,” he said. "That's what’s driving this project..."

The Louisville, Colorado-based company was founded in 2003 and began franchising in 2012. It has 64 locations open and nearly 80 in development, and is poised for growth, with nearly 30 percent of all office space projected become shared office space by 2030, according to a report by commercial real estate company JLL.
