A common question we get concerns the number of executive suites or business suites that seem to be crowding the market as well as the vertical on Google and Bing, etc. Frequently we are asked if this affects a law firm's chances of renting offices to another attorney.
The short answer is "It could - unless you choose the correct venue to source inquiries about your offices".
This is because the majority of full time individual office users will gravitate towards legal office space or a legal office suite, before they will relocate to a general executive business center. Now, I won't say that we don't rent offices in Executive Centers to attorneys, because we do - however the bulk of the demand on our site seems to be aimed at offices offered for sublease in law firms for attorneys looking for shared legal office space with shared use of the conference room(s), reception, phone system, copy/scan/fax and kitchen.
In New York City and throughout the country in both major metropolitan areas and suburban locations, there has been a tremendous increase in the number of Executive Suites and CoWorking Centers, in the past 2 years. The increase in capacity has been monumental - in NYC alone, WeWork has, according to The Real Deal a year ago they were one of the largest lessees of office space in Manhattan. They currently lease in approximately 1.5 million square feet of office space in Manhattan - and they seem to be growing exponentially on a regular basis.
Many Executive Suites and CoWorking entities are well financed and have a deep pocketed advertising budget. Accordingly they spend oodles of cash on venues like Adwords, where words we paid $2.00 per click for just 2 years ago have been bid up to $20 - $25 per click. That's what happens when many similar firms crowd into a vertical market and start competing with each other.
