FutureSpace Opens 3rd Office As Co-Working Spaces Soar in SA

FutureSpace, a high-end ‘pro-working’ office space joint venture between Investec Property and workplace specialists Giant Leap, has opened its third office in as many years to meet the ever growing demand for premium shared workspaces.

The new FutureSpace office is located at 6 Bruton Road at Nicol on Main in Bryanston, Johannesburg. It caters to start ups, entrepreneurs, independent consultants and even large businesses that want to be close to innovators and the networking opportunities that come from working alongside smart people from diverse backgrounds.

FutureSpace’s existing offices are in Sandton at 61 Katherine Street and 96 Rivonia Road, both minutes from the Gautrain and both over the road from Sandton City shopping centre.

Linda Trim, Director at FutureSpace, said: ”South Africans continue to adopt the massively popular global trend of co-working spaces. Around the world we see a marked shift in demand for shared offices that are as well designed and sophisticated in service as five star hotels.

“Co-working spaces are not new. But since they’ve made a step-change from just desks for hire in tired buildings to a Zeitgeist way of working with offices in major business nodes and all services on hand, their popularity has taken off.”

The new FutureSpace office in Bryanston for example offers concierge services, IT tech support on site, barista coffee and food, dry cleaning, restaurant reservations, courier services and showers. These services are in addition to meeting room facilities of all sizes and work spaces from open plan desks to private offices, all with video conferencing facilities and super-fast wi-fi.

“Our new Bryanston offices expands our offering and brings shared work space closer to a lot of people.”

Trim also pointed out that the rise in popularity was in line with the growing trend of the on-demand economy like Airbnb and Uber where people and business are moving away from ownership and towards instant access.

“Office space is no different. Instead of spending months looking for and fitting out new offices at great expense, people can now be working in beautifully designed offices with everything they need in a matter of minutes.

“Co-working spaces are incredibly convenient thanks to the flexibility and cost effectiveness. You can pop in to work for a few hours by yourself or your company can use the space to set up their headquarters for as long as they want at a significantly lower cost than renting,” Trim added.

  1. The idea is highly appreciated and how i wish such creative ideas could also spread to small towns and villages within the government context of small town revitalization program vast number of unemployment people are in the rural areas and these areas are a waiting time bombs to flood the urban areas with all that is negative be it crime , riots in demand of work opportunities and service delivery. Small and rural town in provinces like Eastern Cape can help to shape the few through the arresting this flow and perhaps learn from countries like Germany where small towns like Saarbrucken, Essen, Bochum which the industrial hubs at the time Germany was centred in expansion and manufacturing amory but now they are focusing on technology development and their universities have created spaces for such advancements.
    it is my submission that as small towns around Bhisho, Mthatha are getting congested the neighboring spaces could be changed to retain and arrest such urban rush by creating such hubs and with your help this could be possible. I would like to hear from you as i have a small piece of land not far from Bhisho which cold be utilize to realize such endevours.
