Edinburgh is home to a fast-growing flexible office space market, with well-established industry names such as WeWork and IWG offering space here and an increasing number of independent newcomers setting up shop. The city centre is a hub for financial business, with companies such as RBS and Standard life located here, and in the West of Edinburgh you’ll find a number of business parks in this region, which attract large corporates including HSBC and JP Morgan. Due to the popularity of these areas for businesses, it is unsurprising that there is a larger proportion of flexible office spaces in these areas of the city.
To the North East of the city centre is Leith, an up and coming port district, which has received significant commercial and residential development to drive more business to the area. As a result we are seeing flexible office spaces popping up in this location to accommodate the growing business market. Exchange is another area which has undergone change over recent years and is becoming a well-known business destination, popular with professional service companies and leisure facilities.
Edinburgh is a well-connected city, with an international airport and well-established railway network, making it a desirable location for businesses. A high volume of graduates come out of the four universities in the city, which is highly attractive for businesses looking to build a talented workforce. The City’s historic charm and wide open spaces make it an appealing location to work in, not to mention its vibrant social scene offering an array of restaurants and cultural festivals, such as the Edinburgh Fringe festival.
