Best Coworking Spaces in St. Petersburg Florida

By March 24, 2020April 16th, 2020No Comments

Whether you’re a remote worker, running a freelance business, or launching a startup, you might need a coworking space to get your creative juices running. 

Plus, there are several unexpected benefits that coworking spaces can bring to your life … cutting costs, a network of like-minded people, & productivity through collaboration.

The St. Petersburg area of Florida has several coworking spaces up and running with more being built every day! 

I have found that most offer:

  • “open floor co-working” areas (a temporary spot for those digital nomads) 
  • permanent desks (often with mailbox privileges for freelancers) 
  • private offices (for teams that need their own space)

So for the past few weeks I’ve been visiting various coworking spaces and coffee shops around St. Petersburg (and will continue to update this list as I check out more).

I’m evaluating each spot based on these factors:

  • work space accommodations (for the productivity aspect) 
  • Meeting options (phone booths, conference rooms, etc)
  • Volume level
  • Perks and overall “wow” factor
  • Parking 
  • Community (events / networking / meetups)
  • Price

Without further ado, here are my favorites!

Best Coworking Spots in St Pete:

Rising Tides Innovations Center

Rising Tides Innovations Center

This one is my top choice! Rising Tides is a prime, cutting-edge coworking space combining inspiring interiors with a dedicated support system. They believe bringing different people together fosters better productivity and increases work-life satisfaction. It’s also female-founded by the owners of Fletcher and Fischer law firm, with the purpose of encouraging the connection of small business owners and entrepreneurs in St. Pete.
