Spaces opens its largest Hong Kong location to date
Coworking operator Spaces, a stablemate of Regus, has opened its largest Hong Kong location at 77,000 square feet in the Central district.
The new premier location in Central is situated on the same block as Infinitus Plaza with views of Victoria harbour.
“Central and Sheung Wan have always been core business districts,” said Nancy Yip, Area Director for Hong Kong with IWG. “Spaces Sun House is situated in a premium location in Sheung Wan, which is adjacent to the MTR station and merely a short walk away from business landmarks such as the International Finance Center (IFC) and Exchange Square.”
The facility includes a 7,000 square foot “Business Club” that provides hot desks, a space for informal meetings and socialization among members. The second floor contains meeting rooms, while the third through nineteenth floors offer private offices to accommodate teams.

The top twentieth floor holds an event space and rooftop party area.
Spaces leased the Sun House building in September 2017 and renovated it into an office community complete with 130 private offices, 800 workstations and numerous floors of coworking space with help from the building’s owner, the Sun Company.
The coworking spaces will be one of the largest flexible office locations in Hong Kong.
Spaces is also opening a new location in Wanchai on Hennessy Road next month as it continues its massive expansion in Asia.
IWG said last year that it intends to double the footprint of Spaces globally during 2018.
