From WHYY: Can co-working work in Wilmington suburbs?


By Mark Eichman, WHYY

Coworking is a big trend in office real estate these days, with workers from different small business sharing space in a loft-style office, often with short-term leases.

Robert Herrera has had big success running a coworking space in downtown Wilmington called The Mill. He’s confident the idea will be just as popular in a more suburban setting.

“Plain and simple, I think there’s a lot of people in north Wilmington that aren’t interested in going through the traffic and leaving their home, their comfort level in that office,” Herrera said. “But this is so easy and convenient to get to, there’s football fields worth of parking.”

In addition to ample parking — something no urban center can boast of — the suburban campus will offer workers a chance to stretch their legs and maybe even join in a game of volleyball on their lunch hour. 

Even though The Mill Concord won’t be ready to open until 2020, it’s already 30% leased.
