There are now around 58 spaces operated by 40 companies in Central Ohio, with new ones being dreamed up or entering the market each year, as we examined in our in-depth July cover story. One, WeWork, is a global coworking company last valued at $47 billion that has 37 locations planned or built in the U.S., and locations in 38 countries. It just announced its entrance into the Short North at 800 N. High Street, where it will occupy all available office space.

Other spaces span Columbus from Downtown and the Short North, to Upper Arlington, Dublin, Westerville and more. 

Check out some good options below and see photos below. While not exhaustive, it should get you started on your quest to learn more about—or choose—a space where you can get work done.
