The growth in the coworking inventory has accelerated over the past years, with more than 5 million square feet of new space flooding into the market in each of the past three years (Cushman & Wakefield, 2018). In 2018, over 200 coworking companies that operated in the U.S. had at least one location larger than 5,000 square feet. As competition increases, coworking markets enter periods of “specialization” in spaces of various size, business plans and clientele (Brown, 2016; Diduch, 2018), however, the lack of analysis of these characteristics make it difficult to understand the current supply of coworking space on the market.
