Real Estate consultancy company JLL has successfully provided space for 2 new branches of the international provider of coworking offices - Spaces. In November this year, Spaces open in the low-energy building Nile House in Karlín, where they will occupy more than 3,500 m2. One month later, they will take over 3,300 m2 in the SmíchOFF office building in Prague 5.
“In the case of flexible spaces, the most important factor is the location and range of services in the neighborhood. In addition to the most popular Prague 1, where Spaces will open its first branch soon, Prague 5 and 8 are also very attractive thanks to the excellent accessibility and range of services in the area. Therefore, opening new branches in this part of the city is a logical choice,” said Marta Kadlecová from JLL Tenant Representation department.
Spaces provider, International Workplace Group (IWG), brings revolutionary changes to Prague regarding professional coworking spaces. It is thanks to their nearly thirty-years of experience in the field. After Romania and Poland, the Czech Republic is now the third country within the CEE region where Spaces will open its branch. More than 3,000 office centres are now operating in 120 countries worldwide making it the world's largest operator of this kind of service.
"Thanks to opening new premises in the Nile House and SmíchOFF, altogether, Spaces will offer 4 centers in Prague. Together with Albatros and Parkview branches, Spaces will offer 15,000 square meters to all those looking for an inspiring work environment. We confirm the market leader position not only worldwide, but also within the Czech Republic and we will continue to expand. Thanks to the enormous interest in shared offices and coworking, at least one flexible workspace center from the IWG Group opens on average every day somewhere in the world. Over the past few years, we have succesfully built a network of nearly 3,500 centers for the use of our clients.," said Karel Pelán, Country Manager IWG for Czech and Slovak Republic.
The opening of 2 new Spaces in the Czech Republic proves the growing interest in this type of offices. The flex space trend is increasingly affecting the Prague office market, what JLL also confirmed in its latest research on this topic. In 2019, JLL expects a 67% increase in the number of flexible offices in Prague compared to the previous year.
