SOK, Russia’s second largest shared office operator, has announced it will open a Tel Aviv location in early 2020, according to Alex Barafanov, the company’s manager of activities in Israel.
This location will be the company’s first located outside of Russia and will take up 3,060 square meters of Tel Aviv’s Nitsba Tower. The five-year deal will span from the ninth floor to the eleventh floor and accommodate 500 members.
Going forward, the company hopes to open five more locations spanning 20,000 square meters across Israel over the next three years.
Barafanov said that the company chose Israel to expand into due to its fast-growing, diverse market that caters to both small companies and large enterprises.
