The new location features more than 2,900 sqm of leasable office space and is a joint venture between Spaces and the landlord of the Phahon 19 building under a new partnership model.
Strategically located near MRT Phaholyothin, the soon-to-open Spaces Phahon 19 is targeting a new market segment that covers Lat Phrao, Chatuchak, Bang Khen and Ratchayothin. It is surrounded by an abundance of office buildings, shopping malls and communal areas and is just a few minutes away from Central Plaza Lat Phrao.
The space boasts a modern, light and airy European design, great coffee, with banks of floor-to-ceiling windows on the second floor of Phahon 19. The building comes with its own secure basement garage, which makes travelling easy by both car and public transportation.
“Bangkok is one the most vibrant cities in the world with growing business hubs and an entrepreneurial spirit. Our decision to expand in this part of town is based on our wish to extend our reach to Bangkokians in the Northern part of the city by providing them with a place to work and meet with like-minded professionals who believe in the power of collaboration. Our contemporary design and warm and genuine hospitality allows our customers to achieve an optimal work-life balance, a ley driver for productivity, employee retention and overall job satisfaction,” said Lars Wittig, country manager of Spaces, which is part of the International Workplace Group (IWG) covering South Korea, Philippines, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand.
“In addition, our partnership with the landlord for Spaces Phahon 19 is a testament to the growing demand and interest in the flexible workspace industry. Thailand, as the transportation, business and industry hub of Asean, has a strong demand for quality workspace from both local and international investors, corporates, SMEs, startups and entrepreneurs. By allowing the landlord to invest in our business, we are adding value to development by fostering a community of energetic and driven professionals. At the same time, our expertise in the co-working business offers the landlord agility and a slice of the flexible workspace sector, without the risk of running his own operation,” Wittig added.
The new location at Phahon 19 will consist of 87 co-working desks, private offices, 4 meeting rooms, 6 dedicated desks, as well as meetings rooms, a pantry and a large Business Club. After a hard day at work, members can also choose to step out and enjoy a meal at nearby Rod Fai Park or visit the Thai Bank Museum.
In line with the Spaces brand concept, Spaces Phahon 19 will offer a regular flow of networking events, lunches and communal activities, allowing members to engage, network and venture into new possibilities. Members also have the convenience to access any Spaces co-working location in Bangkok, located at Summer Hill, Chamchuri Square and Empire Tower, and more than 250 Spaces locations worldwide.
Spaces was established in 2006 in Amsterdam and its first branch in Thailand opened at Summer Hill community mall in 2017. Spaces Phahon 19 is expected to be completed by October 2019.
