Mobility cities are experiencing a boom in demand for office space as more companies move towards flexible work in the post-pandemic era.

Areas like Welwyn Garden City, Bromsgrove and St Albans – which were traditionally places for busy office workers to spend their evenings and weekends before rushing back to town – could become business hotspots, according to the shared office provider IWG.

The three cities saw demand for office space rise by more than 50 percent in the first three months of this year compared to the same period in 2020.

It comes as major city companies like Standard Chartered have announced plans to allow employees to work from shared offices near their homes.

“Companies are rapidly moving toward a hub, modeling and maintaining a central headquarters, but they are also working to empower employees with access to smaller co-working spaces, closer to their homes,” said Mark Dickson, CEO of IWG.
