International creative workspace provider Spaces has announced the opening of a new centre in Manchester.
A workspace created for corporate shakers, burgeoning businesses, freelancers and energetic entrepreneurs, Spaces provides a tailored business community for its members that brings creative minds together in one place.
Set to open in May 2018, the new Spaces will be a light-filled energy efficient workspace, spanning 10 floors of Peter House, Oxford Street. Occupying over 7,940 sq. m. in the heart of the city, its proximity to Manchester Piccadilly Station and cultural attractions like the historic Museum of Science and Industry makes it an ideal location for businesses seeking flexible workspace.
A recent report by the Centre for Cities thinktank ranked Manchester as having the fastest growing population and job creation rate of any other city in the UK. An urban renaissance has seen businesses flooding to Manchester and in need of a base for their operations. With an unforgettably grand entrance hall, and combination of comfortable private offices, light-filled coworking spaces, and hot-desking options, the new Spaces is expertly designed to provide a dynamic, forward-thinking workspace.
Richard Morris, UK CEO of Spaces, says: “Demand for flexible office space is growing rapidly – our research shows that 53% of professionals globally now work remotely for at least half their working week and 30% of corporate real estate portfolios could be flexible workspace by 2030. People are recognising that they are far more productive and successful in a dynamic working environment, while businesses are waking up to the financial and strategic benefits. Spaces is helping to supply this demand and drive a workspace revolution in Britain.
“We are excited to provide a flexible and creative working environment with socialising and networking at its core, in the heart of the dynamic city of Manchester. It’s an environment that enables members to share ideas and build partnerships through a programme of business and leisure events.”
Both entrepreneurs and well-established businesses are recognising the benefits of flexible workspace providing a more creative environment as well as financial and strategic benefits – cutting costs, attracting new talent, enabling fast growth and access to a network of potential business leads and collaboration opportunities.
