Highlights of November 2018: Top 4 Flexible Workspaces in Singapore

It goes without saying that the future is all about flexible workspace. From startups to larger SMEs, more and more businesses are considering flexible spaces to meet their requirements. We’ve been partnering with more flexible workspace operators in Singapore to bring businesses more options. In this article, we give an overview of the spaces we highlighted last month for our #WorkspaceWednesday series. From professional serviced offices to desks at a coworking space, this lineup is perfect for small teams looking for a space to grow.

Coworking

1.   Coworking team suite for 4 at Mapletree Business Park

Occupy a comfortable, fully-fitted office in a prime business hub and get the opportunity to work with Unilever, one of the top FMCG companies in the world. The coworking office itself offers a great wide-window view, and all members at this space get access to an array of meeting rooms. Located at the heart of Mapletree Business Park in the West, this space is tailored for startups who focus on marketing, AdTech, enterprise tech and the FMCG space. Do these keywords resonate with your business? Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity.

At this coworking space, you can also rent hot desk or dedicated desk options. Moreover, you get easy access to one of the largest event spaces in the West. Because of its flexible configuration, this venue is popular for workshops, panel discussions, and networking sessions. An on-site barista is available for serving coffee to all guests along with options for catering.

Our Recommendation: This coworking office isn’t for everybody, so expect membership criteria to be somewhat exclusive. Businesses involved in tech and FMCG marketing have the most to gain from joining this coworking space. If you’re looking for rapid growth alongside a multinational company, this team suite could be the one for you!

A well-known staple in Singapore’s coworking scene, this cozy coworking space for rent is nestled in a shophouse along New Bridge Road. Its prime location in the CBD puts it near accessible public transport hubs, including Chinatown and Outram Park MRT stations. Members get exclusive access to social networking events along with regional networks in Hong Kong, Bangkok and Vietnam. The warm and relaxing atmosphere of the space is complemented by regular yoga sessions, quiz nights, and other perks that make a workplace community feel like home.

Serviced Offices

3.   Professional serviced offices at Suntec City

One of our recently added listings—a professional serviced office for rent with a clean, ergonomic design. This space is located in a Grade A office building within the Suntec City cluster, a strategic location within the CBD. Nearby, tenants can easily access a diverse spread of F&B options and one of the largest shopping complexes in Singapore. Professional IT teams, secretaries, and other support staff are all onboard 24/7 to help take care of your business. On top of these perks, the office offers a gorgeous high-rise view of downtown Singapore. Offices are available for up to 12 persons.

Apart from private offices, you can book well-equipped meeting rooms that can seat up to 20 persons. These spaces can be booked even on weekends and public holidays. The rooms come with amenities including video conferencing equipment and access to a shared pantry.

4.   Private serviced office space at Raffles Place

This next space is another serviced office in Singapore offered by the same space operator. Located on a high floor in the OCBC building, this space is right above Raffles Place MRT, which is at the core of downtown Singapore. Even with its prime location in the CBD, the asking prices of the space are very affordable, ranging from around $500 to $600 per person. The offices come with advanced IT infrastructure and cabling, along with reliable in-house support teams and high-speed WiFi connectivity, among other amenities. Offices are available for up to 12 persons.

Like the space in Suntec City, meeting rooms are also available at this Raffles Place location for up to 20. These spaces can be booked even on weekends and public holidays. The rooms come with amenities including video conferencing equipment and access to a shared pantry.

Our Recommendation: This space appeals to the same kind of businesses who would consider the serviced office at Suntec City. The difference ultimately boils down to location—Raffles Place is primarily home to industries in finance, whereas Suntec City is geared towards companies in the tech and health space. Choose the best location for your clients and/or employees!
