‘Co-working’ expected to boom in VancouverNovember 27, 2017 10:07 am
The New York-based co-working company WeWork is continuing to search for more space in Vancouver.
“We’re really excited about Vancouver and have been keeping an eye on it for some time,” said WeWork’s general manager for the Northwest region, Gina Phillips. “There is a movement toward the growth of the Vancouver tech ecosystem and emerging startup environment.”
WeWork’s efforts here will likely accelerate the transformation of swaths of Vancouver’s traditional office space into the short-term rentals popular with startups, freelancers and satellite branches of international tech firms, local experts say.
WeWork members from Seattle, Phillip’s home-base, and elsewhere have been asking about co-working space in Vancouver, she told Postmedia in a Nov. 10 interview.
