In a world of freelancers and remote workers, coworking spaces continue to rise in popularity.
The latest flexible, shared working enviornment comes from Regus, who has opened a new space in Robson Square, which was recently decided by the city to be developed into a social hub of downtown.
Located at 777 Hornby Street, the centre features a co-working space with an urban rustic design featuring exposed brick, wooden desks and modern art that caters to startups, entrepreneurs, and young professionals.
Research by Regus Canada found the most popular reasons people choose co-working is about working with like-minded people (77%) and the opportunity to network (78%). It also highlights how co-working is cost-effective (83%), especially compared to fixed-office leasing, and it is an ideal environment for startups to thrive (73%).
“Robson Square is an incredible location that will continue to serve an array of professionals in Vancouver,” said Wayne Berger, VP of Regus Canada. “Our customers are demanding more and more space throughout BC, and our newest design is superb, further creating an environment where like-minded BC companies can do the best work of their lives.”
Regus is the world’s largest provider of flexible workspace solutions, with a network of 2,800 locations across 106 countries and 977 cities, serving 2.3 million members.
