WeWork, the world’s leading flexible office space provider, announced the expansion of its On Demand pilot to an additional 15 locations across New York City. The pilot service launched in August with locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn, and will now expand participating locations to Queens and new Manhattan neighborhoods.
WeWork On Demand allows individuals without a membership to book a workspace for only $29 per day or reserve meeting rooms starting at $10 per hour through the WeWork On Demand app. New participating locations include Astoria, Long Island City, Gramercy Park, Harlem, and more.
“We’re thrilled by the positive response from early On Demand users and are excited to expand the pilot to more neighborhoods and boroughs,” said Prabhdeep Singh, Global Head of Marketplace, WeWork. “The use cases for On Demand have varied from people looking to find a distraction-free environment to take important phone calls, to parents booking meeting space so their kids can work beside them during distance learning. People are looking for a safe, clean place to be productive near their home, and WeWork On Demand can provide that.”
Since launching the service last month, WeWork has seen 20% week over week growth in reservations. Many users continue to come back and book spaces, some coming in three times a week. Users appreciate the flexibility of easily and quickly securing space, with most users booking their reservation just the evening before heading in. WeWork expects this pattern to grow with the new locations in Brooklyn and Queens.
WeWork locations participating in the pilot have a number of amenities for visitors, including unlimited coffee, outdoor space, bike storage, a mother’s room, and more.
