Owing to its outstanding design and high standard of pioneering a co-working environment, Spaces World Plaza by IWG was adjudged the Best Co-Working Space in the country in the recent PropertyGuru Philippine Property Awards 2019 held at Fairmont Hotel Manila.
“It is a great honor for Spaces World Plaza to be named the Best Co-Working Space through an evaluation of the strict general criteria set by an independent judging panel. It is also an equally great privilege to be recognized among the best names in the country’s real estate industry,” said Lars Wittig, IWG Vice President of Sales in ASEAN, Taiwan, and South Korea, in a statement sent to THEPHILBIZNEWS.
Renowned for its gold standard for excellence in Philippine real estate, the PropertyGuru Philippine Property Awards has acknowledged, rewarded and celebrated the extraordinary achievements of developers and their projects at a domestic and regional level since its inception in 2013.
This year, its choice of Spaces World Plaza is a testament to IWG’s international standard for design of flexible workspaces, strategic location, value for money, unique selling points, sales success, design concept, site layout, innovation, use of space, quality of amenities, construction and materials used, and sustainable function.
“Spaces World Plaza is uniquely designed to provide flexible workspaces for companies of all sizes. We have dedicated desks that are perfect for those who need their own desk for one computer. We also have shared offices that are fully tailored to our tenants’ needs – these come with a cupboard, locker and those little post-its that our members really like,” Wittig said.
Since the establishment of Spaces in Amsterdam in 2006, its workspaces around the world have been known for its signature Scandinavian-inspired design, which boasts a lively and vibrant entrepreneurial vibe that is typically paired with the availability of the latest business technology, attracting entrepreneurs and SMEs as well as local communities. Spaces World Plaza by IWG is not an exception to this European approach to aesthetics, and it also offers a good mix of functional elements with its open walls and partitions that enhance usability and privacy at the same time.
Situated right at the center of the bustling business hub, Spaces sits at the topmost floor of the World Plaza Building on 5th Avenue, which allows its members to enjoy the stunning view of the skyscrapers of Bonifacio Global City. Its massive community hall, that spans 815 square meters in total, welcomes its collaborative tenants with a warm, free-spirited, business-casual vibe in its naturally-lit penthouse location.
A whole world of space
The 3,200 square meter property also boasts 477 well-designed individual workstations, meeting pods, private rooms, and even private phone booths. It has a dedicated in-house deli cafe, catered exclusively by Little Flour Café, famous for its artisan coffee and sumptuous pastries.
Spaces World Plaza is also home to designer desks, tables, sofas, super-fast Wi-Fi and informal meeting areas, providing the perfect place for mind-mapping, meeting, collaborating or crunching numbers. Its unique design allows for its tenants and members to have a quiet desk to work on, a large table to coordinate with the team, a lunch table to meet a new client, and a cozy coffee corner to fuel them throughout the day. Open 24/7, Spaces World Plaza also assures safety that is monitored and managed closely with the building security.
In February 2019, Spaces by IWG added one more location in Spaces Arnaiz Makati where it is proud to be the first co-working space provider in the country to occupy a whole building with its five-story property.
