The Market for Short-Term Office Space

At Office Evolution®, there are a number of features that set us apart from other work centers in the United States. One prominent example is the option of renting short-term office space. While other office rentals still require a long-term, often multi-year commitment, we rent private, ready-for-use office space on flexible, month-to-month agreements.

In the past, it was almost impossible to find high-quality short-term office space. Now, thanks to workspaces like Office Evolution, that’s become less and less the case. This is big news for a number of local small business owners, independent professionals, and startups, who stand to benefit from the flexibility and functionality of temporary office rentals.

Rising Demand for Short-Term Office Space

Over the past few years, there has been a spike in local interest in short-term office space, as well as in other parts of the country. In fact, you would be hard-pressed to find a major metro area in the country where this isn’t the case.

So what’s driving this increased demand for short-term and temporary office space?

Digital technologies have played a key role in this trend. Cloud computing, in particular, has made it much more cost-effective to rent short-term office space. Without the need for paper files or onsite servers, it takes less time and less money to get a new office up and running or to scale down its operations.

New technologies are also incentivizing businesses toward flexibility. In the past, a business’s best practices could stay stable for ten or twenty years. Now, those practices are constantly evolving, forcing businesses to evolve along with them. In these circumstances, a multi-year lease can feel like an anchor, preventing your business from adapting to new opportunities and challenges.

A number of people also point to the coworking movement as the reason why short-term office space is suddenly in vogue. On a broader level, the coworking movement’s success has led businesses to rethink some of their most deep-set assumption and practices, including the wisdom of multi-year office leases. More specifically, coworking spaces are known for the option of month-to-month memberships. Professionals and startups can use these spaces with minimal upfront costs and zero long-term commitments.

In fact, many of the best short-term office rentals are currently found in coworking spaces. This is the model we use at Office Evolution. We offer the choice of a coworking plan, a business address, or a private office, with the option of a month-to-month or long-term agreement.
