Following the successful launch in 2020 of Hotspot Workhub, located in The Mark Building, near Piata Victoriei, a space that sets new standards for quality, comfort and safety, the German real estate consultants, REC Partners, will open their second professional hub this fall, designed for companies looking for flexible and innovative offices.
Hotspot SkyHub will open on the top floors of one of the most iconic office buildings in Bucharest – Orhideea Towers, offering members a panoramic view of the city and an environment designed from the beginning for hybrid work. All offices will have natural light, openable windows, interactive screens and can be equipped with video conferencing devices, so that team members working from home can be integrated into the office teams. The spacious common areas, the specialty coffee, the gourmet snacks, come to complete an office lifestyle that the employees desire.
Just 10 minutes away from the centre, surrounded by universities and student campuses, new office buildings and retail areas, the Orhideea area has become the main hub of technology companies in Romania. Public transport in the area and the road infrastructure are among the best in Bucharest.
After more than 18 years of experience in consulting and designing office spaces, REC Partners intends to change the paradigm of coworking – from crowded, improvised, temporary offices to high-end interactive and productive spaces.
“I am glad to see that our first space has the success we wanted and that we managed to be the most attractive coworking space on the market. Now, with the help of our partners and valuable customer feedback, we can continue to innovate and provide solutions for companies that invest in employee comfort and balance. Our clients realize the incredible capital that their teams represent and invest a lot in attracting new talent. We want to use our full experience to help them succeed and be competitive”, said Tudor Popp, founding partner of Hotspot Workhub.
2 years after the launch of Hotspot Workhub, now at a 100% occupancy level, the success of the concept is confirmed by Hotspot members who appreciate the top features, office equipment and furniture, meeting rooms, the spectacular lobby in which it operates Hotspot Café, next to the conference room with movable walls, the atmosphere and the Hotspot team that is always at their service.
The BREEAM Excellent certification and WELL Health & Safety rating confirm the clear direction of Hotspot to meet the most demanding requirements of corporations and to compete with the best traditional offices. The concept developed together with Biroarchitetti from Milan brings an important change of vision for flexible offices in Romania, focusing on essential elements of sustainability and ergonomics.
