Growth of start-ups and new ventures combined with skyrocketing real-estate pricing has been a significant factor in the recent increase in demand for co-working spaces in Mumbai. A cosmopolitan city with posh locations, corporate networking and all excellent facilities, Mumbai has always been ideal for budding flexible culture.

With the change in the perception of work culture in young individuals, the so-called millennial, along with the availability of ultra-modern facilities and a non-traditional office set up, the demand for flexible workspaces have risen. And this change in culture is not just amongst start-up ventures but can also be seen in the conglomerates and MNCs who are moving out of their traditional office setups embracing co-working culture.

According to the FICCI report, Mumbai had the highest proportion (14%) of co-working space to total office leasing in 2018 and is forecasted to further grow exponentially in the coming years. Cumulative space leased by co-working operators has more than doubled from 1.9 Mn. sq.ft in 2017 to 3.9 Mn. sq.ft in 2018 and is expected to exhibit a remarkable increase in 2019.

With a captive target of over a million people, Mumbai offers the highest business potential in this space.

Coworking spaces based on the plug-and-play model offers all benefits of a fully serviced or managed workspaces covering not only the infrastructural needs but also the recreational requirements of the millennial, thus providing a pocket-friendly perfect work-life balance.
