These key decision drivers align well with the offerings of 315Work Avenue.”

The concept of workspaces and the way we perceive workspaces strategies have evolved significantly in recent years. The flexible space stock in India is expected to cross 80 million sq ft by 2025. The demand for coworking spaces is expected to grow at around 15-20 per cent over the next two to three years and if the macro fundamentals remain stable, the growth will be higher.
