Made By We opens its first on-demand space
WeWork’s parent company The We Company has opened its first retail and coworking space in New York’s Flatiron District.
Made By We is a pay-as-you-go hourly or daily workspace that requires no monthly membership.
“[Made by We is] a place where people can come and work, it’s a place where people can come and explore products made by companies who work in WeWork spaces around the world, and enjoy amazing coffee and other food,” said Parker Lieberman, Director of Retail Strategy and Operations for Made by We.
Guests can purchase over 300 different products made by WeWork companies nationwide— anywhere from candles to apparel.
The We Company hopes the space will act as a “town square” for the area and will host community events.
