NEW YORK - JPMorgan Chase & Co is tearing down walls and moving its San Francisco investment bankers onto “hot desks,” a space-saving layout that has long been a fixture at tech companies, while redesigning offices in Dallas and other cities. A view of the exterior of the JP Morgan Chase & Co. corporate headquarters in New York City May 20, 2015.

Coworking spaces seem to be taking over the city. Right now, the largest private-sector occupier of office space in central London isn’t a tech firm or major bank. It’s WeWork, a leading provider of shared workspaces. And coworking is big business: WeWork was valued at £27bn in June, making it the world’s second most valuable startup after Uber; Regus offers coworking space in 3,000 business centres around the world; and Dutch brand Spaces has hundreds of locations across Europe, Asia, and Africa, including 10 in London. It’s easy to see why coworking spaces are so heavily in demand. Since the 2008 financial crisis and the subsequent recession, the number of self-employed people has skyrocketed by 34 per cent, according to research by IPSE, as companies shed workers and technology and the internet made it easier than ever to start your own business.
