Like Atlanta and Dallas, the capital city of Phoenix, Arizona finds itself transforming due to a wave of new residents drawn to the town’s steadily-growing tech industry presence. Sometimes referred to as “Silicon Valley South West,” the Phoenix serves as a stronghold for top tech companies like Intel, while also hosting satellite operation centers for brands like Apple, Yelp, and Weebly.
With these major players putting down roots in Phoenix, the city needed to adapt to accommodate a flood of new tech-savvy denizens and burgeoning startups. As a result, Downtown Phoenix, the adjacent Warehouse District, Midtown, and even smaller cities within commuting distance like Scottsdale now host coworking spaces designed to provide functional, comfortable, and accessible space for remote workers and freelancers.
These 10 spots represent some of the finest coworking bastions available in the metropolitan Phoenix area.
