Filinvest Land and KMC embrace flexible work with Our Space Solutions

The way we work has rapidly evolved. From rigid, nine-to-five schedules and cramped office cubicles, we have now embraced more flexible work arrangements. With that comes the rise of shared workspaces and virtual offices. These unconventional solutions are emerging as game-changers, offering a range of benefits that help maximize productivity while keeping costs in check.

To cater to this burgeoning demand in the country, Philippine developer Filinvest Land, Inc. (FLI) and global coworking provider KMC Community Inc. (KMC) announced a new joint venture, on April 26, 2024. FLI is positioning itself at the forefront of this transformation through a strategic partnership with KMC, as they launched Our Space Solutions, Inc. (OSSI) which aims to provide innovative and adaptable workspace solutions for Filipino businesses and working individuals.

Meeting the needs of a changing workplace

As remote and hybrid work models gain traction, the partnership addresses the significant change in adaptable office space needs brought about by the rise of flexible work. Recognizing this paradigm shift, the two key players joined forces to establish, operate, and manage cutting-edge coworking facilities tailored to the modern workforce’s needs. This includes offering private serviced offices and coworking arrangements within existing commercial buildings owned by FLI and its subsidiary, Filinvest REIT Corp. (FREIT).

“The rise of remote work has significantly reshaped the landscape of office spaces,” shared Tristan Las Marias, President and CEO of Filinvest Land Inc. “Our partnership with KMC, a recognized leader in the coworking industry, allows us to address this growing demand with innovative and adaptable solutions under the Our Space Solutions Inc. brand, and further provides alternate rental solutions to improve occupancy of FLI and FREIT office spaces.”

One of the many advantages of these flexible workspace solutions is the ability to adapt to changing business needs. Whether you’re a startup, a freelancer, or an established company, shared spaces provide agility and the freedom to scale up or down as required, while being a cost-effective alternative to traditional office leases. By sharing resources and amenities, businesses and professionals can enjoy the top-notch facilities OSSI has to offer without breaking the bank.

Combining global expertise with local strength

The joint venture taps into KMC’s global expertise, as it brings its vast experience in designing and managing vibrant coworking communities to the table. Michael McCullough, CEO of WorkSpace Solutions and Co-Founder of KMC, expressed his excitement about the partnership, stating, “We are thrilled to be partnering with Filinvest Land Inc. to introduce OSSI. By combining KMC’s global network and expertise with FLI’s established presence in the Philippine market, we are confident that OSSI will become a leader in the co-working space industry here.”

The newcomer in the south of the metro is equipped to deliver dynamic workspaces that are fully furnished and move-in-ready to let working teams and individuals easily get down to business and focus on their priorities. From private offices for growing teams to virtual offices for digital nomads, and proworking spaces for freelancers or entrepreneurs, it is beyond ready to provide room for all types of business growth and help them thrive and succeed.

A collaboration that reciprocates and is positioned to benefit everyone

The first OSSI location has hit the ground running at Axis Tower One, a prime business hub within Filinvest City’s flourishing Northgate Cyberzone. This flagship office sets the stage for OSSI’s expansion by opening more coworking spaces in FLI’s properties across Makati, Quezon City, and Pasig City.

Strategically nestled outside the bustling central business districts and congested and overcrowded cities of highly urbanized areas—but still within a neighborhood fused with modern infrastructures and a variety of lifestyle and commercial establishments—this disruptive collaboration strives to promote a working atmosphere that is vibrant and synergetic. Each of its private offices and shared working spaces is designed to stimulate creativity and encourage productivity.

“We are delighted to welcome OSSI as a valued locator at Axis Tower One,” said Maricel Brion-Lirio, President and CEO of Filinvest REIT Corp. “This innovative partnership perfectly complements the dynamic and forward-thinking atmosphere we strive to cultivate within our office buildings.”

With a finger on the pulse of workplace trends, the launch of OSSI is paving the way for Filipino professionals to thrive in flexible coworking spaces. Its significant development marks a thrilling fresh era of agile solutions as the pro-working revolution takes hold in the country, providing collaborative solutions for businesses and catering to the growing demand for remote and hybrid work models. It offers not only workspaces but also advocates for supportive communities that foster creativity, connection, and growth.
