  • Location– A location is one of the prime considerations while choosing a workspace. Needless to say, the coworking space you are planning to zero in should be in one of the best business districts in the city with great connectivity. It should be preferably in a mega-campus where there is the availability of facilities like great pantry/restaurant, onsite childcare, napping and dry cleaning facilities. The concerned coworking space should preferably promote the employees to stay on campus so that the productivity is not hampered under any circumstances. However, this is also to be taken into consideration that with great facilities, the cost package also increases considerably. So, keeping the cost factor in your mind is also very crucial.  
  • Knowing the community and culture– This is to be taken into consideration that the community in a coworking space matters a lot. This is obvious that the one-size does not fit all. So, you should necessarily have a fair idea of the community and the culture that prevails in that specific coworking space. This is a proven fact that one-size does not fit all the mentalities. There should preferably be creativity in the location, building, and workspace design in the concerned coworking space. The design, amenities, and feel of the chosen coworking space should be such that it would have the ability to accommodate the ultimate exquisite tastes in the best possible manner.
  • Well-organized parking facilities– Apart from accommodating the prevailing employees in the coworking space, there should be the bandwidth of more parking spaces for the visitors and also for the extra people in case you expand your team in the near future. In case your visitors do not get proper parking space and have to scramble for the street parking, especially if it is a bustling city like Mumbai, Delhi or Bangalore, then this leads to a worse ‘user experience’. So, you should make sure that you choose the coworking space with the best and adequate parking facilities.
  • Collaboration is the key– The millennials, GenXers and Gen Z- all have a tendency of swaying towards the shared office space layouts in order to encourage and facilitate accessibility and collaboration.
