Adaptive reuse is an amazing thing.
In the city of Derby, England, a historic 1860s building is being transformed into a flexible coworking space. The building was previously used as a bar, and before that it was Derby’s main Post Office.
After getting the green light, the building is now set to be transformed into serviced offices and coworking by Cubo, a new flexible workspace brand. Cubo is a new venture from the building’s bondholder, Staton Young Group, a Midlands-based property management company.
The new 20,000 sq ft space will feature private office space, hot desks, a communal area with shared desk space, an in-house barista, a gym, wellness room, games room, and 24 hours access.
Rebecca Brough, managing director, said that they are introducing a concept that Derby hasn’t seen before. “We have vast experience in serviced office space and are excited to be taking it to the next level. We have plans for further expansion to take Cubo across the Midlands and beyond.”
