• WeWork opens it’s first Hong Kong location

    6 September 2016

    (31 August 2016, Hong Kong) WeWork – the space, community and services provider focused on helping people create their life’s work – announces the launch of its first location in Hong Kong, which will open its doors tomorrow, 1st September. Located in the heart of the city’s most prestigious and iconic business and shopping district, WeWork is set to occupy eight floors in TOWER 535, a grade-A office building in Causeway Bay. WeWork will open three floors tomorrow, with the remaining five floors and its second location in Wan Chai set to open later this year.

    The TOWER 535 space has been designed using the proprietary technology invented by WeWork’s in-house design team to encourage open communication and interaction, as well as effective use of space. Each floor boasts an open lounge area which has been designed in collaboration with iconic local ‎architect Nelson Chow. Members can use the venue for seminars, workshops or events, and children are welcome at all WeWork locations.

    Commenting on the opening of the Hong Kong space, Ole Ruch, Managing Director for WeWork in Asia-Pacific said, “At WeWork we are thrilled about coming to Hong Kong, and we’re excited to revolutionize the way people work in this bustling, international city by offering our Hong Kong members the space, services and flexibility they need to pursue their life’s work, all while building networks and fostering collaborations with like-minded people around the world who can potentially help their businesses grow.

    Hong Kong is an important market for WeWork and we will continue to expand here, as well as in other locations across the region, following our recent openings in Shanghai in July and Seoul in August.”

    Henek Lo, the General Manager for WeWork in Hong Kong, Seoul, and Sydney said, “It can be a challenge for businesses who want to expand their footprint into Asia to find a well-designed, functional workspace and a community of business people to connect to in a new market. At WeWork we offer flexibility for business scalability, as well as a network of professionals in Hong Kong and around the globe. Hong Kong is known for its efficiency and government support for new businesses, which makes it a natural choice for our members. Companies set up here to take advantage of the city’s international platform, legal infrastructure and geographic proximity to China and other Asia-Pacific markets.”

    WeWork was founded in 2010 to help create a world where people work to make a life, not just a living. There has been a macro shift toward a new way of work – one focused on a movement towards meaning – and WeWork is helping to accelerate this movement. More than 70% of WeWork’s members collaborate with — and benefit from — each other, across various industries by sharing advice and business ideas.

    “We have a community manager in each WeWork location, including the newly launched TOWER 535. Our community managers act like stewards who understand members’ businesses and treat it as their own. Their role is to provide tailored services to members based on their needs, help introduce member companies to other they might collaborate with, and ultimately help their business succeed. We organize regular seminars for members to upskill themselves, as well as social events and outings for networking purposes,” added Henek.

    Nearly 10,000 companies and over 60,000 members are now based at WeWork locations around the world. Member businesses range from entrepreneurs and start-ups to mid-to-large-sized companies. International locations serve as a base for business travel, as well as offer opportunities for companies to easily expand abroad. Members can choose from a variety of membership plans, which include ‘hot-desking’ – the use of available desks — or renting a private, noise-controlled room.
