It’s no secret that the way people work is changing. Equally not a secret is the growing population of Portland. So it only stands to reason that there are any number of coworking spaces popping up and thriving around these parts. And news that a new provider was opening a Portland space inspired me to take a quick look at what was out there.
I just took a quick swath. But here’s a far from exhaustive list of existing and potential coworking options in town:
We are forging the creative co-working experience. There are many visionaries who make up the creative ecosystem — makers, artists, creative strategists, graphic designers, photographers, stylists, logistics experts, the untitled founders and trailblazers. We are creating an environment where all of the above — and more — can make, form, and collaborate as one community.

CENTRL Office (3 locations, one coming soon)
We created CENTRL Office to inspire people to do the best work of their lives. We wanted to make a creative productive workspace that was comfortable like a pair of blue jeans. One with the social feeling of a coffee house, the efficiency of a factory, and the service of a hotel. A coworking space where people can do great good work. We call it CENTRL Office.
