JustCo, Asia’s leading premium flexible workspace provider, opens its first space in Taipei at Hung Tai Financial Plaza. Situated at the Songshan district and within Taipei’s premier office area, JustCo at Hung Tai Financial Plaza spans across 60,000 sq ft across two levels, with a capacity to hold 750 members.
With an aim to foster a dynamic community, JustCo will hold regular lifestyle and professional events for members to network, seek new connections and explore collaboration opportunities, which will help drive success and innovation to their businesses. Members will also automatically become part of JustCo’s ever-growing community and have immediate access to all JustCo centres in Asia Pacific. Exclusive perks and privileges with JustCo’s strategic partners such as Dropbox, Hertz, Amazon Web Services, Mandarin Oriental Taipei, World Gym are also part of members’ entitlement.
Being the only Asian coworking space provider that has presence in multiple key cities in Asia, members can work from any JustCo centre whenever they travel. To date, JustCo has close to 40 centres located in key Asian markets such as Singapore, Bangkok, Shanghai, Jakarta, Seoul, Sydney, Melbourne, Taipei and more in the pipeline.
JustCo at Hung Tai Financial Plaza features an interconnected stairway that offers easy access and convenience to members, alongside modern workspaces decked with spacious hot-desking area, a well-stocked pantry, collaboration corners and breakout areas to facilitate casual meetings, quick discussions and more. Highlights of the space include a games area for members to relieve stress and bond over a friendly match of foosball or darts, phone booths designed for personal space, six stylish meeting rooms and a large event space to accommodate up to 100 guests.
In line with Taiwan’s national drive towards sustainability and upcycling, JustCo has partnered with Miniwiz, a Taiwan-based circular economy RD&D (Research, Design and Development) company that turns waste materials into meaningful products. Exclusively to JustCo at Hung Tai Financial Plaza, Miniwiz has utilised materials drawn from JustCo’s very own ‘unwanted paper products’, which were recycled to build and produce four functional coffee tables. Also, the reception will feature a wall installation forming the tagline ‘Just Believe’, made out of polli-bricks, a recycled building material that can be easily installed, removed and assembled to form rectangular modules. With the use of honest and raw materials, JustCo believes in designing a space for members to perceive tangible value and enhance their workspace experiences.
“We saw Taiwan as a potential market for us to further strengthen our presence across Asia Pacific, as increasing demand has been coming through from large corporates and Fortune 500 companies. To encourage collaborations and to build a denser network across the ever-growing JustCo community, our team launched the JustCo App – an online platform where members can matchmake with other companies that have similar synergy, and establish meaningful relationships with other members across the region. In addition, JustCo also aims to drive the start-up ecosystem in Taiwan, by innovating and providing companies with the necessary resources and guidance to grow their business via the JustCo Labs initiative,” says Kong Wan Sing, Founder and CEO of JustCo.
In fuelling its rapid expansion, JustCo Taiwan will also welcome two other new centres located at Minsheng Jianguo and Dian Shih, targeted to open by Q3 and Q4 2019 respectively.
JustCo at Minsheng Jianguo will welcome Novartis, a multinational pharmaceutical company, occupying its own private space across an entire level. Employees of Novartis will benefit from JustCo’s flexible workspace, shared facilities, professional community services and more.
According to Instant’s APAC Flexible Workspace 2018 report, the growing demand from clients has seen the supply of space increase by 16% across Asia-Pacific over one year, with an estimated 8,600 centres now offering flexible office solutions across the region.
