SoHo is a trendy Manhattan neighborhood that ambitious professionals are drawn to no matter what stage they’re at in their career. Known for its designer boutiques, high-end chain stores, and premium art galleries, the area is especially conducive to those in creative industries—inspiration is around every corner.

But an in-demand neighborhood can mean a lack of available office space, and what is there usually comes with astronomical prices. Coworking spaces are rapidly solving this dilemma. With best-in-class amenities and a sense of community within, these buildings with shared office spaces are appealing to professionals of all backgrounds. WeWork’s coworking spaces are strategically situated in SoHo, providing affordability and convenience without the worries of long-term leases and steep startup costs.
