Abstract: The purpose of this study is to identify the factors that affect building community and maintaining/enhancing sustainability in coworking spaces, based on an almost complete enumeration which could help us grasp a true measure of the phenomenon. Community and sustainability could be key issues on coworking spaces. However, even empirical research dealing with both issues as well as discussions on the management of them is not hardly found while studies focusing on the spaces have steadily been accumulated mainly from the viewpoint of community such as user interaction. Therefore, we analyze the data obtained from 168 out of 365 spaces that are nearly all the operating coworking spaces in Japan (as of July 2014). As a result of that, we showoverall influential relationships on community and sustainability of the spaces, and present three types of the factors influencing those issues, which are named as alternative-oriented, balance-oriented, and trade-off.
