JustCo is opening a co-working space in Marina One

Co-working has just become luxurious and stylish.

JustCo, which bills itself as Singapore's largest co-working space provider, will soon showcase its famous coworking design and style in Singapore’s newest iconic building, Marina One, a mixed-use development bounded by Marina Way and Straits View. Well-known neighbors include Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay, and Esplanade Theatres on the Bay, among others.

“This is the first time coworking will be available in one of Singapore’s most prestigious buildings meaning a new stage for coworking in the city,” says JustCo co-founder and CEO Wan Sing Kong. “Until now coworking spaces have been confined to the fringes of the CBD or further afield.”

Facilities and services will include a meeting room, internet access, a community portal, guest reception, a pantry, events and JustCo perks.

Kong says this opens the opportunity for entrepreneurs and start-ups to move into this location and rub shoulders with business giants like Facebook. “Plus it enables the leading corporates to delve into coworking without having to compromise their location,” he says.

He also notes that this adds another key group of members to the JustCo community that can connect and network with the existing member base.

Kong has previously noted that JustCo’s big name clients already include DropBox, Japanese messaging app Line Corp and U.S. web security firm CloudFlare. In fact only half of JustCo members are start-ups or small businesses, and they see more MNCs and big corporates being attracted to coworking - if the location is right - thus the Marina One location.

Marina One has been projected to be the one of the most stylish buildings in Singapore and it’s understood that aside from Facebook, consultancy firm PwC and Swiss private bank Julius Baer have already secured spaces, meaning JustCo will be in good company.

Aimed at being a premium destination to live, work and play, it’s an impressive proposition - it will be the only development in Singapore to have a garden within, including 13 waterfalls.

JustCo will be carrying over their special brand of stylish design and creative layout to Marina One due to open in May 2017.

Kong said, “Like each of our existing spaces, it will have a unique identity and because of the exclusive location and types of clients we see coming onboard we’ve tailored our approach to match. JustCo @ Marina One will have a grand, luxurious look and feel. Everything has been done with extreme attention to detail. From the customized ergonomic chairs to maximize comfort, to the stand up meeting room to promote better collaboration, to the high quality finished glass with maximum acoustic performance to ensure privacy.”

“We’re working with awarding winning designers so that the space will be conducive to bringing people together while giving them the privacy they need to work. And at the same time making the workplace a fun and creative place to be.”
