Why Coworking Offices are Better than a Traditional Rental Lease

Ditch the lease and go with coworking for an easier office rental experience, however long you need workspace for. Coworking is a better option in terms of growth, flexibility and less up-front cost. Learn more about how utilizing a coworking membership in lieu of a traditional office lease saves money and provides a better foundation for your work life.

More Affordability

Hot Desk membership is a great option for sole practitioners and remote workers. It’s less expensive as an employer to provide office space at Sprout CoWorking than to rent an office for all employees. One office membership at $200/month provides access to two Sprout Providence and Warren coworking locations, doubling your business presence and workspace options. Office members at any tier can use both Sprout CoWorking locations in Providence and Warren for 24/7 work and meeting space. Month-to-month memberships range from $200-$1750, or there is a $100/day rental option. Parking is free and free coffee is always available in the kitchen.

Members can start at the lowest monthly price and scale up as they grow. For example an individual may start as a Hot Desk member for $200/month, introduce team members and scale up to a $650/m Open Office any time. If you’re not sure how your business will grow in the future, the option is there to join at a lower membership price and switch to a larger room later on without changing locations. Plus, there’s no security deposit needed for any of our office memberships.

The on-site bike path in Providence is great for your lunch breaks and meeting for a walk. Personalize the office space and make it work for your needs.

Coworking office memberships work particularly well for companies downsizing or just making the switch to a partially remote workplace. Coworking is an option to consider if you’re looking for more affordable office space that may be canceled anytime on a month-to-month basis. Furniture, all utilities and internet setup are included, making it much smoother to move in or out. Everything you need to jump in and get down to work is ready before you join. The biggest difference from a lease is that membership doesn’t demand time commitment.
