January 2021 has seen the opening of 13 new centres under the IWG operating brands, Spaces, Regus and Signature by Regus, in locations as diverse as Prague, Auckland and Rio de Janeiro
In Brazil, customers can now join the thriving business community in Rio de Janeiro’s world-famous neighbourhood by basing their operations at Spaces Ipanema. The centre opening has increased IWG’s footprint in the city to a total of 17 locations including two under the Spaces brand.
The new Spaces building, set over 10 floors in Rio de Janeiro’s most sought after location was formerly operated by WeWork and will house leading businesses, entrepreneurs, freelancers and freethinkers.
The opening of Spaces Ipanema further strengthens IWG's leadership in the coworking market in Brazil. It has successfully operated in the market for more than 25 years and has more than 70 locations across the country. It enjoys an enviable location, located at Avenida Visconde de Pirajá, 495, just 500 metres from the world-famous Ipanema beach. The first Spaces in Rio de Janeiro was opened in Cinelândia, at Teatro Riachuelo, in July 2018.
Tiago Alves, CEO of IWG in Brazil said, “We are actively looking to expand our presence in Brazil in response to growing demand. In the last six months alone, demand has increased by almost a third nationally, as businesses respond to Covid-19 and rethink their real estate strategy, turning to flexible workspaces during these economically challenging times”.
A new Regus Signature centre, Regus 41 cours de la Liberte boasts a prime position in La Part-Dieu CBD – the beating heart of Lyon Metropolis in France. Its location, on the left bank of the Rhône, makes it easy to travel to and from, as well as to entertain clients at the many nearby bars and restaurants.
Newly opened Spaces Parkview in Czech Republic is located just south of Prague’s centre, in the vibrant Pankrac area. As part of Prague 4’s central business district, its prominent positioning makes it a desirable hotspot for the city’s professionals and entrepreneurs. The location is just a short step away from bus and subway stops, as well as a short distance from the area’s vibrant restaurant scene.
In Auckland, New Zealand, customers of Regus155 Fanshawe Street can now combine metropolitan business with park and harbour views. This Wynyard Quarter district is becoming an increasingly sought-after spot within the city’s CBD. The place to see and be seen, the building’s full-height glass atrium and views over Victoria Park make for a smart first impression as well as pleasant working environment.
Through its operating brand centres, IWG provides choice, and serves the whole world of work, creating personal, financial and strategic value for businesses of every size. Join us at www.iwgplc.com
