ROBINSONS Land Corp. (RLC) is entering the flexible workspace segment with the launch of its own brand work.able.
In a statement on Tuesday, the Gokongwei-led property developer said its first flexible workspace, which spans 1,100 square meters (sq.m.), is located at Cyberscape Gamma building in Ortigas Center, Pasig.
The first work.able facility had its soft opening in December 2018, but RLC is already planning to launch two to three hubs every year.
With its Scandinavian and industrial design elements, RLC expects its shared working space to attract start-ups, freelancers, and firms looking for extra space.
Kaye Sanchez, vice-president for business development and marketing — office buildings division of RLC, said work.able’s edge over competitors is its location on the ground floor of Cyberscape Gamma building.
“Location! We are the first to locate in a ground floor space right in the heart of Ortigas central business district, while our private offices are at the penthouse of the prime office building,” Ms. Sanchez told BusinessWorld via e-mail.
The private offices, which include up to 6-desk suites, are located on the 37th floor of the Cyberscape Gamma. The private office space has a total capacity of 131 seats.
Rates at work.able start at P250 for half a day up to P11,000 a month. The rate includes unlimited coffee and infused water, and free Wi-Fi.
For those who will lease a private office space for at least 30 days, there are additional perks such as mail and package handling service, the use of a business address, meeting room hour credits plus printing, photocopying and scanning credits, among others.
The work.able hub also has a 200-sq.m. common area, a self-service bar with coffee machines and infused water, four meeting rooms and an events space that can accommodate up to 40 people.
“At work.able, a dedicated Community Manager and Community Associate are also around to help you connect with people who might give your business a boost, or vice versa. Work.able members have the opportunity to attend events, talks, and seminars where they can socialize, establish connections, and plan collaborations with other members,” the company said.
Operating hours are from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. from Monday to Friday.
