Barcelona Consolidates its Position as the Fourth European City with the Highest Share of Flexible Spaces

30 April, 2024

In the dynamic business landscape of Barcelona, recent data from the real estate consultancy CBRE reveals a promising trend: the Catalan capital is positioned as the fourth European city with the highest share of flexible offices, reaching a weight of 3.5% by the end of the first quarter of this year.

This trend translates into a significant increase of over 200 new flexible positions in the last quarter, thus maintaining the city’s flexible stock rate at a solid 3.5%. Barcelona is therefore established as one of the main European markets in terms of penetration of flexible offices.

Comparing the data with the same period of the previous year, Barcelona has experienced an 8% increase in the transaction of flexible positions, reaching a total of 2,303 hired positions. At a European level, although cities like London (10.1%), Amsterdam (4.8%), and Rotterdam (3.6%) lead in terms of market penetration, Barcelona closely follows in fourth position, surpassing important capitals such as Brussels (3.4%), Warsaw (3.2%), and Prague (3%).

City of Innovation and Creativity

In addition to its prominent position in the European panorama regarding flexible offices, Barcelona offers an economic environment and coworking spaces that are very attractive for professionals from various industries. The mild climate, access to technology, and Mediterranean lifestyle of the city act as magnets for those who seek a high quality of life while working. This conducive environment for balancing work and social and cultural life has made Barcelona a destination of choice for remote workers and digital nomads from around the world.

On the other hand, its attractive entrepreneurial ecosystem has significantly contributed to its reputation as a city of innovation and creativity. With a solid positioning in the birth and stabilization of startups, Barcelona has proven to be a nursery for new companies in various sectors.
