CHICAGO—Co-working has become of the true engines of the Chicago region’s office market, and all signs point toward robust growth for the foreseeable future. According to Colliers International, which just issued a new report on co-working, at the beginning of 2014 providers occupied 788,898 square feet of office space across thirty-eight locations throughout the CBD and its surrounding neighborhoods. And of that space, long-standing provider Regus had 425,007 square feet, or about 54% of the market. Since then, an array of co-working companies entered the city’s market, which now consists of 2,577,471 square feet of office space dispersed amongst 99 locations, leaving Regus with a market share of approximately 15.3%.
