SPACES Makati: Step into the first coworking building in the country

The new generations continuously challenge everyone to understand the essence of work-life balance by thinking outside the box – and working outside the typical office environment. In a country where the average age is less than 25, it’s easy to see that this “work-lifestyle” is indeed efficient and increases productivity.

SPACES, one of the flexible workspace solutions under workspace pioneer International Workplace Group (IWG) recently opened its doors to SPACES – Makati Arnaiz to continue meeting the demand for flexible workspace solutions in Manila. It is the first co-working site in the Philippines that occupy its own building, and marks as the second SPACES in the country, following the success of the one at the World Plaza in Bonifacio Global City.

SPACES – Makati Arnaiz is strategically located in the Makati Business District, enabling their clients to utilize a premium business address in one of Manila’s fastest-growing business hubs. The Makati Business district, graced by luxury hotels and restaurants, has become a centralized development hub, benefiting from the businesses and amenities from established neighboring towns through connected public transportation. This allows people from all walks of life – entrepreneurs, small business owners, corporate entrepreneurs, and high-profile personalities – to enjoy what SPACES has to offer.

“Makati is a well-established hub for businesses in Manila,” said IWG regional vice president Lars Wittig. “With many local and foreign businesses continuously looking to set up their headquarters in this area, Makati faces steady economic growth. Flexible workspaces solutions are increasingly in demand here given this rapidly growing influx of new businesses and with the help of our new center, SPACES – Arnaiz Makati, we hope to cater to these businesses and provide the option for companies to expand into Makati according to their real estate needs,” he said.

With this increase of enterprises setting up their business in Manila, flexible workspace solutions play a huge role in creating opportunities for new entrepreneurs and visionaries to network and build connections to further their businesses. “More and more businesses are realizing that flexible working solutions and co-working hubs are an easy way to break into a new community and build lasting relationships. Employees enjoy a better work-life balance and increase productivity by doing work in environments that foster creativity and innovation,” shares Wittig.

SPACES offers a co-working space equipped with the latest business technology and high-quality furniture to create a beautiful and unique entrepreneurial environment that reflects the lively community of forward thinkers, innovators, and game-changers in Manila.

Wittig added, “The nature of work itself is changing. With the rise of digital natives, there is a growing trend for people to work in more flexible ways. Digital technology makes it possible for people to work productively where they want – at the office, on the go, from home, or at a third place. Our new center will support this demand for flexible working, giving workers the opportunity to use our first-class business facilities when they need them.”
