Following JustCo’s aggressive expansion and foray into new markets across Asia Pacific, the home-grown flexible workspace provider has secured a new space in Singapore, located at Manulife Centre. Targeted to launch in Q4 2019, JustCo at Manulife Centre will spread across more than 50,000 square feet and occupy two levels of the building.
The centre in which the new space of the flexible workspace provider is located, Bras Basah’s Art and Heritage district, has direct access to Bras Basah MRT and is expected to house more than 1,000 members.
This new opening brings JustCo’s portfolio to a total of 33 centres across eight key cities in Asia, including Singapore, Bangkok, Shanghai, Jakarta, Seoul, Sydney, Melbourne and Taipei. According to Instant’s APAC Flexible Workspace 2018 report, the growing demand from clients has seen the supply of space increase by 16% across Asia-Pacific over one year, with an estimated 8,600 centres now offering flexible office solutions across the region. Between 2017 and 2018, the supply of flexible space has also increased by more than 50% in many local markets across Asia-Pacific.
Commenting on its expansion to Manulife Centre, the founder and CEO of Just Co, Mr Kong Wan Sing, said: “As the only Asian co-working space provider with presence in multiple key cities in Asia, the positive response from our existing and new members, many of whom are fast growing companies, has allowed us to grow much faster than we planned.”
The flexible workspace provider added: “By the end of 2019, we expect to have more than 50 centre locations spanning across more than 2 million square feet. This is more than doubling the network of locations from a year ago. While Singapore remains the strongest market for JustCo, our continued expansion in Asia and use of workspace technology will allow our members to harness even greater value from our large regional community.”
Over the recent years, many large corporate clients including Fortune 500 companies have moved out from traditional offices and into co-working spaces like JustCo, in order to meet the evolving workplace culture of their employees – especially millennials.
Housed within a culturally rich and charming neighbourhood, JustCo at Manulife Centre will be a breeding ground for corporates to establish meaningful business connections, while enabling employee engagement where staff can thrive in a wider community that has a shared purpose.
Highlights of the centre include a spacious hot- desking area, showcase corner for members to display their company products, games area where members can bond over table tennis and board games, a cosy wellness room with hammocks, and a breakout space with monkey bars and punch bags, which also doubles up as a space for casual discussions. Members can also expect a well-stocked pantry, phone booths and quiet pods where they can clear headspace, and a thoughtful nursing room for mothers.
In addition, a large and well-furnished events space is specially designed to hold up to 180 guests. This event space will allow members to seek networking opportunities through the wide spectrum of professional and lifestyle events organised at JustCo. There is also a multipurpose room made up of two meeting rooms, where its collapsible doors and partitions can be removed to fit up to 50 guests.
Stepping into JustCo at Manulife Centre, members will be greeted by a workspace that features neutral tones, concrete black frames along with ample wood flooring and furnishing. The aesthetics of the space will take influence from Bras Basah’s arts and heritage district, which is surrounded by several historical museums and monuments that boast neoclassical and palladian architectural styles.
