As the work-at-home population grows, so does the demand for productivity-boosting workspaces—and the Westchester suburbs deliver.
With more and more people working outside of the office, the demand for nontraditional workspaces has grown—and Westchester is more than keeping pace. Here, you’ll find lots of chic, sleek co-working spaces ideal for any budget and any business—all perfect for setting up shop and doing better business.
If you’re searching for an office—or, simply, a “hot desk” to boost your productivity, start here…
#1. Stark Office Suites (Rye Brook)
Stark Office Suites in Rye Brook is a professional building with upscale amenities and the latest technology, ensuring you’ll always have what you need when you want or need it.
Along with being located in one of the most beautiful buildings on Westchester Avenue, Stark Office Suites offers a handful of perks that will take your working experience to the next level. And—bonus—they cover parking for clients and guests, making meetings hassle-free. Also included? A car wash, dry cleaning services and a full-service bank with an ATM at your disposal.
#2. Regus (White Plains)
With locations all over New York, it’s hard to question Regus’ well-earned reputation as the original—and one of the best. With a popular White Plains workspace, as well as one in Hawthorne, it’s easy to swing by, plugin and build your business.
Regus is also ideal because it truly understands the modern worker—and works hard to ensure you don’t take on (or pay for) more than you need. At the same time, as your business grows, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to “upgrade” into bigger office spaces—always with both short- and long-term rental options. And in the meantime, should you need a conference room or event space just for the day, Regus has you covered.
#3. KOI Creative Space (White Plains)
Also in White Plains, New York KOI Creative Space lives up to its name. The creativity-boosting environment is the perfect place to collaborate and brainstorm with other innovative professionals, and develop ideas—and contacts—that will propel your start-up or freelance business.
Step inside KOI and you’ll feel like you’re in a modern Manhattan workspace—without the hefty Manhattan price tag. Dozens of windows ensure all-day natural light, and the minimalistic colors create a breathable workspace that’s ideal for developing your ideas.
While people work—and work hard—here, plenty find KOI the optimal space to mix, mingle and maximize your network (and jobs…), given the diverse nature of your new local “co-workers.” And, like Regus, KOI tends to be very flexible with members—whether you need to drop in for a day, set up full time or give a presentation in a conference room, KOI has membership plans that will fit your needs.
#4. Ground Floor Coworking (New Rochelle)
Ground Floor Coworking’s goal is to create a comfortable and affordable workspace for area workers—whether you’re a solo freelancer or a start-up company on a tight budget, there’s no doubt they have a space with your name on it. Whether you choose to settle into a private room or a conference area, the warm colors and lighting at Ground Floor Coworking create such a relaxing environment, you’ll hardly feel like you’re at work.
Here, members have tons of options when it comes to when, where and how to work. Choose a shared desk and meet someone new, rent your own desk and knock out your to-do list or snag an office space. Parking, coffee, internet and refrigerator access are included with your rent, so you’ll have all the amenities you need to power through your busy days.
#5. Serendipity Labs (Rye)
Unlike many other workspaces, Serendipity Labs offers opportunities to work in “ideation and visual studios,” bringing in resources like whiteboards and TV screens to heighten productivity for you or your team. That’s a huge draw—many people work-from-home because they don’t want to report to a ho-hum office day in and day out…so why commit to those kinds of spaces in the suburbs?
And if that’s not your speed? Opt for a “traditional” hot desks, offices and workspaces—and, either way, do it on your terms. Whether you need to drop in for a day, host a meeting, chat with a client or need an ongoing space to work, Serendipity Labs offers multiple membership options that are extremely adaptable to you and your business.
#6. HudCo (Dobbs Ferry)
If you’re looking to expand your network and connect with professionals in other industries, HudCo is the work space for you. With accountants, artists, journalists, stylists and everyone in between working from this Westchester hotspot, you’re sure to get the job done—and expand your professional network—immediately.
Another unique feature at HudCo? A commitment to total privacy. HudCo offers nursing rooms for moms, private conference rooms and plenty of places to pop in and make calls.
Granted, you can still hit up your local Starbucks, Panera or area cafes and attempt to crank through your work. However, if you work at home regularly, you know how tricky that can be…not to mention costly. Because while, yes, you’ll get a spot to work for free, at those cafes you’ll have to load up on $6 lattes just to keep your seat—and navigate everything from the lunch rush to noisy kids to figuring out if you can leave your laptop when you run to the restroom. Not ideal, especially if this becomes your Monday through Friday.
