Video: Inside South Florida’s Co-Working Craze

Co-working spaces have changed the way we network, the way businesses launch, and the way they scale up.

They’ve also reshaped the real estate landscape.

We’re seeing this first-hand in Miami, which is home to more co-working space per capita than any other city in the U.S., according to a new study.

The city’s urban core is home to the highest concentration of shared space, but new hotspots are popping up across South Florida, explains Schwartz Media Strategies president Tadd Schwartz in a recent Miami Herald article:

“While Brickell currently has the most shared office space, Tadd Schwartz, a public relations executive who represents several real estate clients, says the rise of business districts beyond downtown like Wynwood, Doral, and Dadeland have given co-working ventures a way to expand their footprints in the area.

‘Miami has become a multi-market destination when it comes to business planning,’ he said.”

To better understand how co-working is impacting the office market and why South Florida is a hotbed for this trend, Schwartz Media Strategies president Tadd Schwartz visited Pipeline Brickell, one of Miami’s first shared work spaces, to interview Pipeline Workspaces co-founder Philippe Houdard.

Since launching in 2012, Pipeline has expanded into new markets in Florida and beyond — all the while staying true to its focus on cultivating a diverse membership and offering rich programming. Pipeline’s newest locations will be in Tampa and Orlando, opening up new opportunities for entrepreneurs to network across the Sunshine State.

Philippe speaks to all of this and more in his on-camera interview with Tadd.
