WeWork’s cofounder Adam Neumann may be out as CEO, but he leaves behind a massive global empire of coworking spaces.

After a botched initial public offering and months of controversy, Japanese investor SoftBank will take control of WeWork. Neumann, who stepped down in September, will reportedly get $1.7 billion.

During his reign, Neumann expanded WeWork from its New York City headquarters to more than 110 cities across 29 countries. The company currently offers 604,000 workstations globally.

New York City has the most coworking spaces with 60 locations, but Shanghai and London each have over 35 spaces, according to UK-based gaming-supplies company Liberty Games. The company analyzed the number of WeWork offices around the world in a report on the best cities for coworking spaces. Per that research, renting an office can cost under $300 in Mexico City for a hotdesk (shared table space).
