Demand

Demand for spaces with 25+ desks continues to grow. In 2022, demand for spaces of this size accounted for 7% of total demand; in 2023, it accounts for 11%. Flexible workspace demand for spaces with 3-9 desks is also up, accounting for 41% of total demand in 2023 compared to 38% in 2022. Smaller requirements for 1-2 desks only account for 36% in 1H 2023, down from 41% in 2022.

Supply

Flexible workspace supply in Orlando has grown by just 2% in 2023 when compared to 2022. The city’s supply is predominantly hybrid workspaces, accounting for 56% of the total flexible workspace supply. Serviced offices comprise 40% of the supply, and coworking spaces make up just 4% of supply.

Rates

Achieved rates for workstations have increased 11% in 2023 year-to-date when compared to 2022 ($552 per desk per month vs. $495 per desk per month). However, in 2019, the cost per desk for flexible space in Orlando averaged $558 per desk per month.

Comparatively, the average desk rate per month for flexible workspace in Miami was $666 in 2023, according to The Instant Group’s recently released North America report, “Beyond the Traditional Office: Trends and Insights in North America’s Flexible Workspace Market.”

Industry Growth

Between the first half of 2022 and the first half of 2023, The Instant Group saw a 50% increase in demand from the healthcare industry; a 50% increase in demand from professional services; and a 100% increase in demand from entrepreneurs and freelancers.

“The cost-per-desk for flexible workspace in Orlando is relatively low compared to South Florida, so we see a lot of the new traffic price-shopping against other Florida markets,” said Max Brizer, senior digital solutions manager, The Instant Group. “Much of the interest we see is for spaces in the Central Business District and from the healthcare and life sciences industries; however, we also see some movement in the suburbs as people prefer to work closer to home and avoid traveling into city traffic and fighting rush hour.”
