Considered one of the fastest-growing cities in the country, Atlanta owes much of its expansion and economic upswing to the tech industry. Forbes claims that tech companies based in Atlanta have increased almost 50% since 2010, and as these businesses continue to multiply and expand, the city welcomes more and more shared office buildings to accommodate remote workers, early startups, small but established companies, and everything in between.
