The way we work is constantly changing and the mobile workforce is rapidly becoming en vogue due to technological advances. Companies need less physical office space as their workforce becomes mobile and connected. Other companies are outsourcing work to contractors, who either work from home or in ‘coffee offices’, but actually need access to an upmarket space where they can hold formal meetings and have access to business and concierge services.
A South African company – XtraSpace – has developed a unique office space solution in Melrose Arch that taps into this emerging trend of workplace flexibility and mobility. If you need instant, flexible and hassle-free access to work space, you will find this offering attractive. Already, amongst the first tenants at the recently launch FlexiOffice offering in Melrose Arch are aspiring entrepreneurs, international executives and a film crew; clearly it has struck the right chord.
The offices are serviced (furnished and IT enabled), so all you need to do is choose your office size, plug in and off you go. Offices cater for between one and six people; meeting rooms and boardrooms are also available; including a variety of other spaces suited to informal meetings and quick coffee sessions. The entire space is fitted with state-of-the art IT infrastructure, flatscreen televisions, projectors and teleconferencing facilities, and also sports contemporary open spaces for creative collaboration.
FlexiOffice at Melrose Arch is XtraSpace’s first leading, standalone offering in a high-end commercial area. Melrose Arch, as a destination, was a big draw card, as restaurants, hotels; post offices, banks and a gym are all available within the Melrose Arch precinct. The company is currently developing more premium, flexible work spaces, focusing exclusively on the main metropoles.
