PHOENIX – Another coworking firm has opened its doors for business in Phoenix, joining a growing hub of collaborative shared-office spaces in the area.

Novel Coworking has set up in a high-rise on Central Avenue near Thomas Road. The Phoenix Business Journal reported Monday.

The private, Chicago, Illinois-based company offers shared spaces, suites, virtual and other work spaces and dedicated desks spread over two floors.

Tenants included on-demand food delivery DoorDash.

Just a couple of weeks ago, Galvanize in downtown Phoenix signed a big renter in Google cloud service as a tenant.

Phoenix is the 24th city for Novel, which has sites from Virginia to Washington state.

Rent includes access to an espresso bar, local beer on tap, furniture and 24/7 office availability.

A private office for up to two starts at $475 a month. Office suites for up to nine people runs $250 a month per person.

Novel rolls out the welcome mat ahead of global workspace veteran WeWork. That company announced plans in January to open in Phoenix later in the year at 25th Street and Camelback Road.

Phoenix-based Co+Hoots, which operates near Central Avenue and Indian School Road, was named a best coworking space by Inc. magazine in 2017.

According to the website, the company planned to expand to Mesa this year.
