Much like the natural cycle of awakening, spring brings a dash of energy, restlessness, and an increased desire to explore the world around us. For knowledge workers (particularly those working from home much of the winter), this is reflected in the desire to leave the home office and head to beautiful, inspiring, and unique workspaces.
We made a list of 10 unique flexible spaces you should consider this blossoming season - and just like Gable, they’re global.
The Spiral is a flexible workspace in New York City, located in the most architecturally daring and culturally significant new tower on Manhattan's West Side. The space offers light-filled workspaces and an outdoor area, enhancing the health and well-being of your workforce while being a walk away from Moynihan Train Hall, Penn Station, and the 7 subway train.
What makes it unique: The views are often stunning in Manhattan, but The Spiral brings it to a whole new level. Working here, overlooking the river, you’ll feel an intense sense of immersion into the city, its skyline, and the intense energy.

There’s no shortage of flex and coworking spaces in San Francisco and the entire Bay Area, but Mindspace has been a solid favorite for a number of reasons. Their “global mindset, local flavor” approach is felt throughout the space, as it’s unmistakably designed to reflect the energy of the world’s tech capital.
What makes it unique: Their coffee selection is superb, the work areas are varied and super-comfortable, and the interior design will make you feel cozy yet productive. Oh, and phone booths are available for those back-to-back Zoom calls.

The Cathedral is a church-turned-coworking space in Austin, converted into an inspiring and productive environment for Austin's diverse community. It boasts an intentional design, colorful art on every wall, and luscious greenery scattered around the space.
What makes it unique: Working from a space that once used to be a church is as unique of an experience as you can get, but it’s not where it ends: there’s the beautiful sanctuary that boasts 14ft ceilings, natural light throughout, a range of seating options, and the original 1930s architecture!
